  3. Observe no Acceptable Ads
  4. Check Acceptable Ads switch in settings to make sure they are enabled

  • Summary changed from Acceptable Ads switch is broken on with CSS injection enabled to Broken detection whether a document (root frame) is whitelisted or not

The issue is that we check whether the document is whitelisted (as well as element hiding) a wrong way.
For example, there is a filter @@||^$elemhide,~third-party (on my machine, google redirects to, but it does not matter) and in the engine we call Main.cpp::GetWhitelistingFilter("", empty vector, CONTENT_TYPE_ELEMHIDE) which calls GetWhitelistingFilter(urlArg, "", type) and it returns an empty string. However, it should use URL as document URL instead of an empty string, thus call GetWhitelistingFilter(urlArg, urlArg, type).

It has been introduced here.

It does not affect for instance filters like @@||^$elemhide which are created when a web site is manually whitelisted.
