There is a buggy/tracking js on certain eBay pages. A similar problem was reported a few months ago in the eBay user forums by several irate users. and a simple solution was found, but it no longer works.

when on the My eBay: Purchase history page, it is slow to load then Firefox sends this popup warning.
a script is busy, stoped responding...
https://secureir.ebaystatic.com/rs/c/templates-js-123456.js:7
I was able to > Edit Preferences...
Add filter , to simply fix the problem:
templates-js-123456.js

that worked for several months, but a few days ago that particular filter mysteriously was removed from my ABP Filter Preferences. I did not remove it!

I added it again to my preferences, but it is no longer able to block the errant JS.
I tried to add the entire url and this

Code: Select all

||ir.ebaystatic.com/rs/c/templates-js-123456.js:7
neither seems to work.

I was hoping that someone here would be able to help me figure this out.

1. is there a Filter rule to block this script that I can add to my Filter Preferences? I am pretty sure that there are useful items in the "ir.ebaystatic.com/rs/c/" I would not want to block, just this one js, as I was able to do before.

2. I don't understand programing, but is it possible that there is a js on the page that is generating this particular url, and I would need to block that js? if so, how would I locate it?

I am desperate here. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. If this isn't the proper forum or venue, perhaps someone could direct me to a forum or programmer who can help me.

Many thanks in advance.

intense, I thank you for taking an interest in my plight.

The script is run on a private page offered to individual buyers. After I sign into eBay I can navigate to the "My eBay: Purchase history" page, which shows all of my recent transactions as well as other personal data, so I prefer not to publish that.

I am sorry if I confused you in my post, I will send you a PM.

I am a little paranoid about this right now.

I see that pulsar.ebay.com is blocked. This is a valid url and owned by ebay.com. It is used to redirect ebay internal usrls.

  • Go to any ebay.com item page. For example https://www.ebay.com/itm/162681088781
  • Go all the way down and let similar products loaded. Click on any one of them.
Since both page and product both are from ebay.com, I would imagine that we are breaking the experience.
If pulsar.ebay.com appears on other domain, than I would block it but not on ebay.com itself.

Moreover, dosn't look like privacy concern to me (not for EasyListPrivacy filter which it is right now).

It seems the issue is only on uBo (due to strict blocking feature), now fixed. In ABP seems to be working fine.
