Install dev. build: adblockplus-1.0.0+.2008120323-en-US.xpi
Add filter:
Go to:
Disable filter from Blockable items list

No trace of the DIV or its filter in the blockable items list.

EDIT: I have also tried to disable those 2 plugins from the Add-ons menu and restarted.
Same result.

Tried these steps in both Firefox 3.0.4 and Shiretoko with different variations - no success, everything works for me. Maybe I am missing some detail?

Are you adding the filter in Preferences? Is the list sorted? Do you have other element hiding filters/other filters? Do you have a filter subscription? Which one?

Yikes....Looking at the title of this thread, I think we had a misunderstanding.
I can see now that I worded it too stupidly:
elements matching disabled element hiding rules still just disappear (from the blockable items list)
What I really meant was, after disabling an element hiding rule, I expected to see this:
And expect it to stay that way.
But instead, the filter isn't there in the blockable items list after a reload:

So uh....sorry about that :?

Heh, there is really no way to indicate element hiding rules that didn't have a hit... Guess that isn't a bug after all.

Edit: Fixed thread title.
