Description (last modified by kzar)


  • Chrome 67.0.3396.87 (Official Build) (64-bit) or 69.0.3457.0 (Official Build) canary (64-bit)
  • ABP dev build
  • EasyList Germany+EasyList
  • No AA

How to reproduce

  1. Go to

Observed behaviour

No self-promotion banners (served from appearing.

Expected behaviour

Self-promo banners should show since they are specifically whitelisted in EasyList Germany.


If you check the ABP dev panel, you'll notice ##.img_ad is still applied although whitelisted via in EasyList Germany. Even adding @@||^$elemhide doesn't help here. It seems ABP cannot recognize the hiding filter is applied on this domain, there simply is no docoment source in the ABP dev panel listed for it.

Took this issue from this comment. The actual resources seem to load correctly now.

This seems to be another regression caused by our change to update the page frame structure on browser.webNavigation.onCommitted instead of browser.webNavigation.onBeforeNavigate.

Same problem as #6692, except this time the frames are "about:srcdoc" instead of "about:blank".
