Description (last modified by sebastian)


Chrome, Opera and Safari

How to reproduce

  1. Go to with filter lists disabled
  2. Click on the ABP icon
  3. Select "Block Element"
  4. Click at the large banner at the top.

Observed behaviour

Two filters are generated, one element hiding filter matching the ID (that one if fine) and a request blocking filter for a javascript: URL.

Expected behaviour

Only request blocking filters for HTTP and HTTPS URLs should be generated. Since those are the only kind of URLs that we can actually prevent from loading, and are supported by request blocking.
