Please note that, if you choose to - hide - items, the addon lets these items to be loaded in the browser, but, will make them invisible. On the other hand, if you choose to - block - any item, the addon prevents that specific item from loading into your browser.

On the other hand, once you choose block from the options page, the addon will block all elements from loading into your browser.
