'Block ads on this page' does not remove whitelisting when re-selected

When the user unchecks the 'Block ads on this site' to disable ABP, the box is not unchecked, but the page is reloaded and ads are shown. The one issue here is that the box is not unchecked, but in addition to this, if the user then selects the 'Block ads on this site' option again, the page still shows all ads.

Looking into the Settings > Ad blocking > More blocking options section, there seems to be a Whitelist created when they first select the 'Block ads on this site' that is never un-checked when re-selecting the option again thereafter.

How to reproduce

  1. Visit
  2. Select the settings burger
  3. Select 'Block ads on this site'
  4. Select the settings burger
  5. Select 'Block ads on this site'

Observed behaviour

The first selection whitelists the site, but the second selection does not remove the whitelist and ads are still shown.

Expected behaviour

The second selection should re-enable ABP and remove the whitelist.
