Description (last modified by scheer)

This issue is very similar to #3050, where a blank page is displayed when the user selects one of the whitelisted ads. The main difference here is this is not from a search result but from Yahoo's front page. The other difference is that Safari opens a new page to load the ad content, as where the ad from Google was attempted to be loaded in-page.


iPhone 6s Plus
iOS 9.3.1
ABP iOS 1.1.0 (New Filter List as of 1/08/2016 - 09:30)

How to reproduce

  1. With AA enabled, visit
  2. Select one of the in-line adverts ($) from the front page.

Observed behaviour

A blank page is opened.

Expected behaviour

A new page is opened with the advertisement URL.
