Description of problem:
The current version of mozilla-adblockplus is disabled in Firefox 57, which is included in Rawhide, F27, F26, and soon F25. Version 3.0 of Adblock Plus appears to be compatible with FF57.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mozilla-adblockplus-2.9.1-1.fc26.noarch (in F26)
Created attachment 1353291 [details]
spec for 3.0.1
I tried to update .spec. Seems it works for me. Note: to webpack nodejs package is required, I bundle it to .spec.

Yes, mozilla-adblockplus recompiled with attachment 1353291 [details] specs works with Firefox 57 just fine. Thanks! Any "official" movement in this matter. Koji records now the last successful activity for this package in June.
I suspect that the current assignee for this bug is no longer active. Koji shows that almost all builds back to at least early 2014 were made by either rathann (who just packaged the new mozilla-noscript) or niveusluna.
Sorry, I switched to uBlock Origin some time ago and don't have much interest in ABP. The review request for uBO is in bug 1518671.
I may take a look at doing a new build of ABP just to make it work in FF57, but I'm pretty busy, so no promises.

Can't build with new spec in mock. It requires network connection.

If you are unable or uninterested in maintaining this package, then please find a new (co)maintainer.

I'm a co-maintainer myself as you can check on https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/mozilla-adblockplus so I'm not sure why you're telling me this. I can remove myself from co-maintainers if that makes you happier.

Maybe, instead and for a benefit of users searching how to solve the problem, it should be noted instead that 'mozilla-ublock-origin' rpm package is available from current Fedora repos. This package does work with recent versions of Firefox and provides functionality analogous to 'mozilla-adblockplus'.
I really cannot tell if making such switch "automatic" by suitable "Provides" and "Obsoletes" is a good idea or not.

Definitely not. Adblock Plus is still maintained upstream; just our package is behind.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.
Not works in Fedora 29. In current state it's absolutely useless package.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 29 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 29 on 2019-11-26.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '29'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 29 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
