Whitelisted ads on not showing

Reported by: arthur Assignee:

Blocking: Platform: Firefox
Ready: yes Confidential: no
Tester: Unknown Verified working: no
Review URL(s):



  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Firefox 41.0.2
  • Adblock Plus and newer
  • EasyList Germany+EasyList
  • Acceptable Ads enabled

How to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. Search for "iphone" with the Google search bar

Observed behaviour

Below "Anzeigen zu: iphone" regular search results appear without AdSense for Search ads. Disabling Adblock Plus for still doesn't make them appear, only if you disable it everywhere from the context menu.

Expected behaviour

Whitelisted search ads should appear.

In the current stable version of Firefox and Adblock Plus this is working fine. This seems to happen for dev builds after This is also reproducible in the latest Nightly (but also with 2.6.11 stable).

Looks like it's still or again happening.

  • Firefox 44.0.2
  • Adblock Plus

This doesn't seem to be the same issue. My analysis shows that Google's async-ads.js expects that the size of the frame content can be calculated synchronously - with an element hiding filter potentially applying to it this calculation occasionally goes wrong however. So in this particular case the content of the frame shows up correctly but the frame size is too small so that everything but the top 16 pixels is cut off. I'm not sure why it doesn't always happen but I think that #524 is the only generic solution on our side. Otherwise one would have to address this by removing the filter causing it ( in EasyList, limited to lots of domains including
