Acceptable Ads inconsistently functions on Android 21+

With the current Lightning browser integration, Acceptable ads are meant to function on Android 21+, but not on Android 17. Whilst testing with an Android 21+ device, I found that Acceptable Ads is inconsistent in its function and will only show acceptable ads in some situations.

From what I observe, it is almost as though the browser can only view either the AA list and apply it, or the Easylist and apply it. But, both don't appear to function together.

LogCat attached.


ABP for Lightning 4.3.3
Galaxy S7
Android 6.0.1
API 23

How to reproduce

Observed behaviour

Following the steps above, Acceptable ads do not function consistently.

Expected behaviour

i've tested with app installed from google play and AA was shown for de, shown for for the first time, NOT shown for after browser closed/started (see the screenshots attached).

So it looks like it's not ABP integration issue.

@asmimov - Correct me if I am wrong, but the store version doesn't have any form of ABP integration, so Acceptable Ads should not work there anyway?

This use case can only be applied to the integrated version.

Correct, Google Play version does not have any kind of ABP integration, but it has primitive domain filtering. I believe all the ads including Acceptable Ads is shown there (not sure what you mean "AA .. work ..").
