Chrome Version 62.0.3202.94 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Adblock Plus 1.13.4
Acceptable Ads not allowed (although also shows when they are allowed, but I'm not sure if these fall into 'acceptable' criteria or not, considering at least 1 is above content and very tall)

How to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. See ads on home page =(
  3. Select an article (I picked
  4. See more ads =(

Observed behaviour

I first noticed this problem last week, but then when I went back to reproduce it, it had disappeared. However, it seems to be back again. The problem also occurs with Adblock, but not with uBlock Origin.

Expected behaviour

I expect all ads to be blocked. We've had issues with this site before, so I think it would be great to add it to our official QA. I also submitted a report via the Issue Reporter on Firefox (Quantum 57.0), as it's an issue there as well. (

Ah ok thanks, I didn't know what to search for. Glad it's covered. I'll resolve this as a duplicate and comment there.
