@smed79 What aren't Uponit ads blocked? Can ABP filters not handle them?

on the main page is working fine, you mean this page:

@intense Can you have a look at this? I can't figure out what is blocking the stock list. Thank you.

bloomberg.com

The stock list below the header is blocked on stock quote pages on https://www.bloomberg.com. It loads fine when adblock is disabled.

Le problème vien du minage obligatoire pour avoir accès au contenu (comparable a un anti-adblock).
This seems like a reasonable answer to me. Wonder why @fanboy and others didn't mention this reason for blocking authedmine.com?

Re: uBlock Blocking CSP Raises Questions

@gorhill @Lanik I see that an option has been added to uBO for enabling/disabling blocking of CSP reports in the latest public release of 1.14.18. The fact that its also disabled by default puts a complete end to the security debate. Cool.

No extension can cause harm right after installation
You know the extensions that hijack your new tab and homepage plus additional settings. They do the harm right after installation and these do make it to the Webstore as I have myself seen.

Can't know what extension is going to harm you even if you go by the rating on Chrome Webstore I recently discovered that most ratings and reviews are faked. Should only go with what you yourself trust.

Yeas, most browser hijackers work by redirecting through multiple domain hoops. This does seem a good development https://www.androidcentral.com/chrome-updates-set-kill-annoying-auto-redirects-and-trick-click-pop-ups.

@Lanik That is why I asked for this subforum to be created. I do not closely follow the GitHub repositories and events like these slip by. I am pretty sure many usual uBO users missed this news as well.

They are just planning to create a monoply here by setting arbitrary rules they seemingly plan to block out the competition.
