Description (last modified by esanchez)

Extra Notes

This issue might affect Google and Microsoft, including all other customers.
Tested with Yavli's and AdPushup's sites.

The extension is blocking ads fine using the easy list, however, it seems that user filters and the exception list are not working.


Safari's ABP Plugin.
Filter rules already on the Exceptions list:


How to reproduce

  1. Open Safari with the ABP extension installed.
  2. Go to
  3. Open the developer console / network connections tab.

Observed behaviour

The following URLs are loaded successfully:


Expected behaviour should be blocked.

Thanks for filing the issue.

I have corrected the usernames on CC, if you install the Eyeo Helpers extension you'll be given better suggestions and it'll be easier to get those right. Trac is quite bad in that regard.

I have also tidied up the description but some clarification is still required:

  • What version of Safari and Adblock Plus are you using?
  • Are you using any filter subscriptions? If so what are they? (That includes the Acceptable Ads exception subscription.)
  • Are those filters you've listed in the subscriptions you have enabled?
  • Should also be blocked?
