Placeholders show up in dynamically created frames

Chrome and Opera, not in Safari
Adblock Plus 1.8.10 and current devbuild
EasyList Germany + Acceptable Ads

How to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Scroll down to the blocked ad banners

Observed behaviour

Placeholder show up, where the ad banners were. That is because the surrounding frame is dynamically created. Those frames are usually considered, but the way those particular frames are created here contentDocument.location is the top-level URL instead about:blank, bypassing our detection. This is a regression introduced with #1977, where that detection has been adjusted to fix another bug.

Expected behaviour

No placeholders for blocked elements should show up.
