Extension stopped working

Hi, the extension was working perfectly and now it doesn't. I've tried uninstalling and installing the extension with no luck. Can you help?

Any chance you can update this?

It was working fine, but now the promoted pins are back in force. It's driving me quite mad.

Too many things are being blocked

On the upside, no ads are getting through! On the downside, it seems like quite a lot of non-promoted pins are also being blocked. For example:

I inspected the code (WOW are they doing a lot of nesting) and confirmed not all missing pins were promoted ones.

Pinterest has updated its system and Promoted pin blocker isn't working.

Ads/promoted pins are seen again. It happened about 5 minutes ago or so.

Not working anymore

I don't suppose you could try to update this again? Pinterest is still hell bent on turning the site into a dumpster fire. I tried digging into the background.js to make it work again, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to fix it : / I found something in the pinterest site html that might be a good target called aria-label="Product Pin".

Ads are blocked on Search but not home feed

Thank you so much for your extension! When I search, I see the "holes" where the promoted pins are so that works great. However, they are not hidden on my home feed. I have some screenshots - can I send you the link to my Google shared drive in a private email? Thank you again!

Hi! this was working great until the New Year hit. Now, it's not blocking ads.
