The whole site header along with useful features such as "MARKET INDICATORS" are getting blocked on http://profit.ndtv.com/ due to this filter in Easylist:

Code: Select all

ndtv.com##.topsponsors_wrap
SS: http://i.imgur.com/74zS8TJ.png

Note: Cosmetic Filtering is disabled so that the elements aren't already hidden.

I don't see any unhidden ad content even after whitelisting this filter.

"At the top of page" it is an ad banner itself, listing sponsors, the blocking is the expected behavior. Moreover I recommend blocking these ad images:

Code: Select all

||drop.ndtv.com/ndtv/budget/budget-2017.jpg

The site header is rendered unclickable and the header which is fixed does not stay fixed on http://www.ndtv.com.

This is caused due to the js http://ads.rubiconproject.com/header/11990.js?ver-20170317.1 being blocked by the following filter in EasyList:

Code: Select all

://ads.$domain=~ads.am|~ads.colombiaonline.com|~ads.harvard.edu|~ads.msstate.edu|~ads.nc|~ads.route.cc|~ads.sk|~ads.socialtheater.com|~badassembly.com|~caravansforsale.co.uk|~fusac.fr|~memo2.nl|~reempresa.org|~seriouswheels.com
The Rubicon js controls the header on this website and it being blocked causes the header not to work.

This should be resolved by:

Code: Select all

@@||ads.rubiconproject.com/header/11990.js$script,domain=ndtv.com
Note: It should be stated that allowing the above URL creates further requests for ads but these should be blocked by subsequent filters in EasyList.

I'm sorry, but I can't replace your issue... What browser are you using?

Sorry, I forgot to list the URL where the issue was occurring, here it is http://www.ndtv.com/world-news

I am using Google Chrome with uBO and have tested this issue with only EasyList enabled. I have also created a video to better visualize the issue: https://vid.me/e/1zmi
