I'm Brazilian, Humanities researcher, and I'm using the biblatex-abnt version with the abnt-ibid option (loads both the citestyle and the bibstyle). In the biblatex package manual (and also in the biblatex-abnt manual) it says that the first reference always appears "complete" (full). Is there any way to modify this? I would like to omit some fields in the reference notes (in my case, footnotes), such as DOI, ISBN, ISSN, URL... but I wanted all the information to remain at the end, where the bibliography appears. Is there a way to omit some fields only in the notes?

You can use the \AtEveryCitekey hook to execute arbitrary code for each citation. With \clearfield we can delete the fields we don't want. (Keep in mind that what is colloquially called a "field" by most people can be of three different types for biblatex: literal fields, literal lists and name lists. Those are deleted with \clearfield, \clearlist and \clearname, respectively. You can find the type of each field in the biblatex documentation.)

For DOI, URL, ISBN and ISSN you'd need


\usepackage[backend=biber, style=abnt-ibid]{biblatex}
