Just to clarify, is this something that you'd expect us to fix soon? Or would we even be able to update Adblock Plus within the next weeks, to fix this? Since you told us that you want to keep the extensions on the Windows Store in a stable state for now.

We will of course look into that issue regardless.

I believe the freeze is still on for another two weeks, so no. This isn't an issue that needs to be addressed immediately, but we wanted to let you know so it's on your radar.

We're continuing to receive reports on this. We suspect it may be because window.onload does not fire properly due to a bug in Edge with ad blockers enabled. We're working on a fix, but in the meantime, a potential workaround that works with YouTube is to trigger a load event on the window to kick off YouTube's scheduler which in turn loads content correctly.

Ross and Ollie, can you check whether this is still reproducible as of the current development build?

comment:6 Changed 3 years ago by oleksandr

Not reproducible on the current development build. However I think YouTube has also changed layout since.
