Description (last modified by sebastian)


Currently, requests that don't relate to any tab or frame (e.g. requests sent by Service/Shared Workers) are matched out of context. This means the $domain filter option doesn't work, neither does document-based whitelisting. However, Firefox and Chrome >=63, now, provide information about the origin of the request through the orignUrl (Firefox) and initiator (Chrome) properties, even if no tabId is assigned.

What to change

Fall back to originUrl on Firefox, and initiator on Chrome, when either the tabId or frameId is set to -1. So that the $domain filter option as well as document-based whitelisting (including $sitekey) work for requests sent from Service Workers (and other scenarios where no tab is associated).

Hints for testers

Make sure that requests sent by Service Workers (e.g. on show up in the "Adblock Plus" devtools panel (for the correct tab only), and are subject to request blocking (with $domain option) and $document exception rules applied to the document that caused the worker to spawn. Requests sent by Service Workers are indicated with a gear icon in the (built-in) "Network" panel in the devtools.

Note that this change involved a refactoring of large parts of the request blocking and whitelisting logic, so watch out for potential regressions (which might not directly relate to the Service Worker scenario).

Done. Has not caused any issues as far. Requests from service workers appear in the devtools and can be blocked. They can also be whitelisted with $document and $genericblock/hide etc.
