This issue is different from Ticket# ACH-13.
Can you please go through reproductive steps and video once again ?

Here in this issue, Filter added under add filter window.
After that If I go back to ABP icon,
Cancel option appears instead of block element option.
(Block Element option is expected)

In Ticket ACH# 13,Filter is not added under Add filter window, Cancel pressed on Add filter window.If we go back to ABP icon Cancel option appears(which is expected. But the issue is Element selection is not allowed.

Hope this helps,

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

That is because the active link has two CSS classes, which result into an element hiding filter. However, the other links don't have any distinct attributes, we could generate a filter from. Therefore it works as expected.
