    I choose 'block ad on this website' then move to the flash which is then surrounded by the green outline but then I cannot choose this. It never sees that I have chosen this.

    Adblock Plus can do this so I assume I am doing something wrong and that Adguard can perform this.

    Please give us a link to example website and a screenshoot what do you want to block.

    I think i prefer the adblock elemnt finder over adguards one it seems abit more percise imo.

    But to ehpl you with your issue you should be able to move the slider after picking the element you want and hopefully get the right div you want to hide, failing that there is always the option of right clicking the element and using inspect element and finding the one you want to hide.

    But as buuuu said a link to the page would be nice so help could be provided.

    Here is the website in question. Over to the right there is a flash video. I can block it with Adblock Plus. I tried copying those terms to Adguard but they didn't work.

    I couldn't log back in with the saved password and the forgot password routine kept telling me the password they sent me was wrong so I re registered as StillGridlocked.

    1. Click block ad on website in adguard
    2. Click on the text that says "WeatherBug National Outlook"
    3. Click advanced (this isn't necessary but i do it so i get the name of the class/id)
    4. Move the slider to the left to make the green box bigger it should now say "weather.weatherbug.com###player-wrapper"
    5. Click block

    The alternative like i said is to use the element inspector in chrome, fire fox or opera and then get the class/id name and block it manually. I hope this helps.

    Normally Adguard replaces all flash objects with stubs that could be selected.
    So it is strange why it does not do it on this page.
    I've created an issue in our bugtracker, we'll fix it till the next release.
