    Seems to be a bit serious, and it also affects uBlock. I wonder if this can be fixed?

    Does it really affect uBlock Origin or did you mean the "other uBlock"?

    The article itself states "uBlock (owned by AdBlock and not associated with uBlock Origin)"

    My bad, apparently uBlock Origin is not affected.
