Code: Select all

||thefreedictionary.com^$first-party,script in Fanboy’s Enhanced Tracking List causes the site to keep requesting a script.

Causes some resource usage but seems to only apply to the homepage.

It's something new. I first noticed today.
The content is there but when the page finishes loading it disappears. If you stop the page loading you can read it.
I don't know how they do it but it's not javascript. If you load the page without javascript the same thing happens. Some CSS trick?

Yes, this filter in EasyList is causing all the content to be hidden:

Code: Select all

thefreedictionary.com##[-abp-properties='display: block; margin*; overflow*; width: 100%;']
@intense I was using uBO that is why I didn't notice the issue might be the same with you.

SS: https://image.ibb.co/dxZb5k/2017_05_01_08_11_54_Settings.png

Error URL: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/nosegay

I don't see any ads even after whitelisting the above filter with:

Code: Select all

thefreedictionary.com#@#[-abp-properties='display: block; margin*; overflow*; width: 100%;']
This filter should be removed.

I would like to remove the warning about adblock plus and be able to see the page.

Best Regards
