Description (last modified by arthur)


Update the Acceptable Ads whitelist and go to this page. If you scroll down, you will notice a grey placeholder after the first image in the article where it says "Sponsored Links". Below the article you will find another one saying "Requests to the server have been blocked by an extension." when hovering it (see screenshot).

What to change

Adblock Plus should remove those ugly error messages since you don't see them in AdBlock when using the same exception rules.

Additional information

The example site has one Google Adsense ad on the right sidebar whitelisted by Acceptable Ads. So some initial ad scripts from Google are whitelisted but only one ad iframe is whitelisted, the others remain blocked. For some reason this causes such an error message.

Note that this issue is only about the messages in the iframes and not the placeholders. Those can probably only be removed by additional element hiding filters.
