Description (last modified by scheer)

Currently, ABP iOS doesn't block any sponsored links. With AA enabled or disabled, exactly the same Sponsored Links are still shown.

ABP iOS 1.1.0 (Latest filter list update 2nd August 2016 09:23)

How to reproduce

  1. With AA enabled or disabled, visit
  2. Search for 'iPhone 6'

Observed behaviour

With either AA enabled or disabled Sponsored Links are shown.

Expected behaviour

Sponsored Links should only be shown when AA is enabled.

  • Keywords AcceptableAds added

  • Keywords AcceptableAds removed

(Again this is apparently a problem that adverts are not being blocked, rather than acceptable adverts being blocked.)
