    Of course, you haven't. That's why you have been asking basically the same questions time and again in the past. And if someone pointed you to a specific uBO wiki site you always said that you would read it. But obviously you never have. You rather expect others doing your homework for you. I'm sorry - but that's a bad attitude.

    Yes thanks, I now see it.

    Thanks, it does it indeed seem to be related to yahoo.com and yimg.com, it now does work.

    I posted the link so that people can at least check if they have the same problem, I'm not expecting anything.

    It's too complex for me, so that's why I didn't even bother. To me these things should be easy to solve, by simply enabling blocked stuff untill the site works, but in case there are many scripts it's not the best way. But anyway, I will now certainly start to use the logger, I agree I should have done it earlier.

    you should give umtx a try. it's much better for granular control. just use ubo for ad blocking and let umtx deal with the rest. believe me, you'll love it.

    @Rasheed187 If you meant page breakage on the very first-time visit which is only phenomenon I can reproduce, it's due to guce.advertising.com and nothing Yahoo yahoo.com/yimg.com related. The following should fix it but page reload also fixes it w/out this rule.
    Code:
    @@||guce.advertising.com/collectIdentifiers$css,script,domain=techcrunch.com

    @Bertazzone Thanks!

    IMO ~ Guce Advertising is part of a large advertising network called Oath, a combined company of AOL and Yahoo, which is a part of Verizon, an American telecommunications company. Guce.Advertising.com is a domain that users encounter due to changed policies of AOL and Yahoo if they have ad-block enabled.

    Ah, I didn't know that. Thanks for telling me about it. My intention was if the problem reported was the same as what I saw, it's not related to yahoo.com or yimg.com domain. But given your explanation maybe we can use scriptlet injection to fix the problem.

    IMO ~ I recently had occasion to search Guce Advertising and AOL webmail. That led me to Oath which I knew from my Yahoo webmail. Oath owns AOL. GUCE stands for "Global User Consent Event", which somehow means that you agree to all their policies, presumably including viewing advertising. AOL, Yahoo, Verizon, etc. Privacy Policies....you'll find Oath.

    Sheez, having trouble posting here all of a sudden. Anyway, HitmanPro detects the guce tracker. Wish I could recall where I picked this up. I believe the policy in Edge.dev was set to Basic, I changed it to the middle setting and haven't seen it since.

    spoiler is empty because of bad word (advertising):
    Code:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/attachments/guce-advertising2-png.265497/
    please avoid

    nevertheless guce is blocked here system wide and dont need ubo/um any longer, same for techcrunch.
    oath sux, guce sux, no one need such tracking crap.

    Regarding new Edge .... any explain why 'uBlock filters - Annoyances' is not listed with Built-in.
    I ran "Restore from file" (Chrome backup).

    So, not just new Edge? ....on new uBlock Origin installs?
    Oh, that explains Built-in (6/7) and Annoyances (0/6) with Chrome n' Firefox?

    Regarding the whitelist, which filter is blocking causing this?

    I'm seeing the following (testing from a UK IP)

    Code:
    https://guce.techcrunch.com/consent?brandType=nonEU&done=https%3A%2F%2Ftechcrunch%2Ecom%2F&gcrumb=8InB3UE=
    https://consent.yahoo.com/collectConsent?sessionId=3_cc-session_f405178cb-2645-45e6-a8ca-f7a5bcb40ec5&lang=&inline=false
    We are blocking the following: (subdoc from advertising.com)

    Then it seems it depends on from where you access. On my location Japan, when I accessed the site first time it looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/q0TaQsj.png

    Reloading the page or allowing guce (and clear the cache then reload) fixes this. Relevant logs attached.

    There is no need for an exception filter, the choice to disable strict blocking is offered right there on the page, temporarily or permanently.

    If you are not subscribed to it, it won't be moved to "Custom", it will simply be removed from the stock lists.

    In my understanding strict blocking comes only when the blocked content is main frame but it is not about redirect, it's an aesthetic issue apparently caused by that purely as third-party. Let me explain:

    Case 1: without the exception
    On the first visit, the page is aesthetically broken. On my end it's 100% reproducible on Firefox 72.0.1 & Brave 1.2.43 (own blocker disabled) with default uBO settings, filters were purged and updated.

    Reload the page and it's fixed. You can see the query parameter of guccounter=1 is attached to the URL.
    https://i.imgur.com/1I4pYwA.png

    Case 2: with the exception rule
    The page is normal for the first visit. The query parameter is not there.
    https://i.imgur.com/czYHgET.png

    I've attached full logs of each cases in list (Markdown) format.
