Review URL(s):



Ubuntu 16.04
Chrome 71
Adblock Plus 3.4.3 / 3.4.2

How to reproduce

  1. Add the custom filters /ad.htm^ and @@/sub.htm$document
  2. Create top.htm, sub.htm and ad.htm and launch static web server (see file contents below)
  3. Open top.htm (e.g. http://localhost:8080/top.htm)

Example file contents


<iframe src="sub.htm" height="500"></iframe>


<strong>With srcdoc</strong>
<iframe srcdoc=""></iframe>

<strong>Without srcdoc</strong>

let iframes = document.querySelectorAll("iframe");
for (let iframe of iframes) {
    <iframe src="ad.htm"></iframe> 



Observed behavior

  • Frame under heading "With srcdoc" failed to load
  • Frame under heading "Without srcdoc" loads successfully
  • Request to ad.htm is shown in DevTools as being blocked by filter /ad.htm^

Expected behavior

  • Both frames load successfully
  • Request to ad.htm is not shown in DevTools as being blocked
