The creator of uBlock Origin has found that three places in EasyList use the Cyrillic lowercase a where the ASCII lowercase a should be used, specifically in the target="_blank" selector inside three hiding rules: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/issues/2598
His issue was that they cause the JS engine to use an inefficient internal storage method for strings, but my issue is that it isn't even the proper form for that special keyword in HTML.

I can't seem to edit my posts, but I have just learned that those three filters were correctly crafted, because the sites in question really do use those characters that way: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/issue ... -300776123
