When I middle click a link in reddit, a new tab will open and then immediately close. From logging, I finally found that uBlck Origin is doing this based on an EasyList rule.

Code: Select all

?utm_content=*&utm_source=*&utm_$popup
Example link that is blocked when middle clicking:

Code: Select all

https://www.reddit.com/r/funny/comments/5z4v8k/where_there_is_a_will_theres_a_way/?utm_content=comments&utm_medium=browse&utm_source=reddit&utm_name=frontpage
When I right click the link and select "open in new tab", the link opens without issue. The issue is only when I middle click the link. This issue just started today - I have not changed anything regarding Reddit, Reddit Enhancement Suite, or uBlock Origin. Last worked correctly on 3/10. Using Chrome v56 on Win7.

UPDATE

Ran into the same issue. I had to disable EasyList in the meanwhile.
This seems to be the commit that broke it, added 4 hours ago:

I'm experiencing this as well.

A temporary fix is to add this to your custom rules:

Code: Select all

@@?utm_content=*&utm_source=*&utm_$popup
