Is there any way to debug this to see what is being blocked? I also don't see the ads with Samsung Browser Beta and ABP. They seem to serve text ads only sometimes though.

I tried to check what it looks like if you disable EasyList and only leave Acceptable Ads on but it seems EasyList is still enabled when unchecking it. Is that intended?

@arthur - The UI does not update when you de-select Easylist on Sbrowser. You need to de-select, then go back and re-enter the Filter list settings to see that it is removed. It´s more of a ´not so optimal´user experience problem.

It is de-selecting it for me but it still seems to use the filters of EasyList.

I tested it again and attached two screenshots. I used Samsung Internet version and ABP for Samsung version 1.1.1. The screenshots are taken with Easylist + Easylist Germany + AcceptableAds enabled. When I disable Acceptable Ads, no ads and no placeholders are shown. When I disable Easylist, all kind of ads are shown.

So it looks exactly like @scheer discribed it.

As far as I am aware they aren't serving different ads via detection on their mobile site. So you would see Acceptable Ads on desktop but not on mobile. I think this isn't really an issue on our end.

So you think the ticket can be closed?

I would say so.
