  • Summary changed from [IE] Some Yahoo pages aren't rendered properly to Some Yahoo pages aren't rendered properly

Removed "[IE]" from the title - pretty much redundant.

The above screenshots is how every Yahoo article page opens up with AdBlock Plus enabled.

I have already read through the "A website doesn't work correctly and temporarily disabling Adblock Plus on this site fixes the issue: this is a filters issue, please report it by other means. ", and tried these fixes.

For one, I can already see that the options available to IE are extremely limited. I'm guessing and hoping that is because it is still in development...

I've tried changing filters. It says the other recommended filter is "Fanboy's List", which is not an available option in IE11's AdBlock Plus. Therefore I've tried other filters. Upon changing the filter to another one, it temporarily fixes the problem for a few page loads, and then reverts back to not loading correctly.

This happens on all of my 3 computers, so it's safe to say it isn't some issue pertaining to my own computer.

Is there any fix to this at all?

AdBlock incorrect formatting issues with Yahoo.com web pages still exist outside main landing page. It is easy to emulate by adding plugin to IE and going to http://sports.yahoo.com. For some reason the whole formatting of the HTML page is stripped with Adblock Plus activated, instead of just blocking ads. This applies to all others as well such as Finance etc.

Can we get any sort of update for this, please? Is it being worked on? I'd like to support this add-on but I can't when my homepage does not format properly.

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by oleksandr

It is being worked on. The fix should be released in the next release of ABP IE.

Has anyone experienced IE locking up after loading a webpage with ABP enabled? I get it when loading finance.yahoo.com

comment:11 Changed 5 years ago by NickMitsu

Yes it is within the same issue as the pages not rendering correctly - sometimes is just freezes your browser.

As far as I can see on the above forum link, there hasn't been an update to the add-on for a very long time, and they do not specify any ETA as to when there will be one.

I'm uninstalling the add-on now and will not support it. Tired of dealing with unformatted webpages, I'd rather deal with some ads.

The rendering is fixed in devbuild 1.2.626. With https://github.com/adblockplus/adblockplusie/pull/1 the hanging and crashing should be fixed as well

Replying to oleksandr:

Some pages render properly with correct format, still many of them do not...

This apparently has not actually been "reviewed" or "fixed".

Disappointing. Still can't support this add-on.

What page is that attached ?

I think it's http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/03/tesla-aims-for-affordability-with-model-e/

That page works fine for me with the latest dev build.

It is working now with the latest build you posted. I downloaded the addon from the IE gallery which was not working.

Now though, the addon causes Pandora to constantly pause after each song when it hits a commercial. This used to not happen. Is there a thread for that?
