The bug is in CFilterElementHide.

  • IHTMLElement::getAttribute sometimes returns not only BSTR or integer but also IDispatch. For example, for the tag like <some-tag on-some-event="do();"/> the value of on-some-event is IDispatch which toString() method returns function(event){\ndo();\n}. The selector in filter is ##a\[onmousedown^="this.href='"]\[target="_blank"]
  • the selector ##a\[onmousedown^="this.href='"]\[target="_blank"] + .ob_source is not properly applied
