    EL includes a rule to hide the 2nd anr 3rd elements as a generic cosmetic rule, but if your blocker is inefficient, you may see the element for a (mili-)second(s) just after the page load.

    Thankfully I'm there already. Apart from my password manager add-on, uBlock Origin is the first, and sometimes only, other add-on I use.

    Good decision. uBlock got approved for now, but this is just delaying the inevitable.
    Not that anyone cares what I'll do, I was hoping that the outcries will give some result so I cried a bit :D
    But the powers that be are adamant - a limit of 30000 filters... lel. *****
    I use 4. Already did a test drive and the switch will be seamless.

    If I uncheck [ ] Ignore generic cosmetic filters in uBO and run the test again.
    Results before and after refresh of test page are:

    <li>: Should not be hidden

    NOTE: That is only if [ ] Disable cosmetic filtering is unchecked.
    Cosmetic filtering is always enabled by default in uBO.

    If you only see that when generic cosmetic is enabled and don't see other two even for a moment, your blocker is working well.

    OK thanks, I have disabled it and it now seems to run faster.
