Whitelisting appears to be working in 0.9.9 on the sites I tested. Is there a specific site/steps that break whitelisting?

Here are my full repro steps:

  1. Navigate to and verify that both squares are showing up as green (ad blocking is working)
  2. Add "" to whitelisted domains (I tried as well with the same results)
  3. Refresh the page

Notice that both squares are still green (meaning that ad blocking is still working). I notice that this reproduces on Chrome as well. Is it possible I'm setting an incorrect rule?

You would add whitelisting domains without the protocol part. Have you tried just That works for me.

Ah, that worked. That's what I get for not reading the directions on the "Whitelist domain" page :). Thanks!
