    Nice find! To my weak eyesight I didn't notice any font change, but I wonder how you figured this out? Did you right-click on the font and select Inspect Element (Q) and then scroll under "Filter Styles" to find spotim?

    Firefox Network analyzer

    anyhow is set by css
    Code:
    html {
        font-family: Aileron,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    }
    Aileron could be webfont. override with style
    Code:
    html {
        font-family: Helvetica,sans-serif;
    }
    which is the more elegant method. usable on many pages this way.

    Brave will incorporate it eventually. You may be able to see it on the Brave Roadmap which is in the process of being updated. When it finally appears you should be able to find it here https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/wiki/Roadmap You may also read about their goals and policies here https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/wiki/Blocking-goals-and-policy

    I consider Brave Adblock to be the best built-in adblocker currently available in any major browser. Of course it can't match µBO's advanced settings but there's more there than meets the eye. Check it out in Shields > Advanced view and then see what you can do with it from the toolbar UI. :thumb:

    @Rasheed187 You're welcome!;)

    @wat0114 Not really, it's more of an issue of auto-refresh likely to be caused by some script. When I opened the link in my medium mode profile it's not reproduced, so I tested it on a profile with default uBO settings (I have many such profiles to reproduce issues reported to uAssets or AdGuardFilters) and reproduced. This means it must be caused by something blocked by my medium mode. Looked the logger to see what requests were made during/around the auto-refresh, I already suspected the "conversation" staff in this step. I nooped spot.im on the medium mode profile and confirmed the issue was reproduced, so again went back to the default settings profile, filtered the logger with the domain and created the rule, now auto-refresh no more happened. Oh, and I assumed he was using Vivaldi so I tested on Brave - it seems the issue is not that obvious on Firefox. This is an example how uBO's dynamic filtering can be used to quickly solve some issues - I guess the whole process took at most a minute or so.

    Just a head up to prevent possible confusion. Adblock warning removal list was removed from the stock filter lists on beta. My personal opinion for this is and has been the same as mapx-'s. If you come across those unobtrusive warnings often, add uBlock Annoyances if you haven't done yet.

    uBlock annoyance description states "Filters optimized for uBlock Origin, to be used with Fanboy's and/or Adguard's "Annoyances" list(s)"

    Looks like users should also enable either of the other list if they aren't and want use uBlock Origin.


    Btw, is uBlock Extra recommended to be used?

    I take that as a disclaimer that it's not an as comprehensive annoyances list. Majority of rules are either to remove those warnings or to counter anti-copy-paste whereas the other two lists focus more on removing cookie warnings and in-page popups (uBO Annoyances has such rules too, but a little). It seems most rules are added independently and thus there are a little redundancy with the other two. I recommended the list 'cause it can be added regardless if you subscribe either of the two lists or not, or if you have disabled generic cosmetic filtering or not; and also I expect least FPs given most of the rules are specific. If you subscribe Fanboy Annoyances I strongly recommend to add uBlock Annoyances while it's optional for AG Annoyances. If you disabled generic cosmetic then you should subscribe AG's than Fanboy's.

    I've found the link I forgot when asked by @bjm_ . I tested with a few of the most recently added links (Sept. 2019) for Extra and apparently there's no difference in blockage - but thorough tests will be needed to conclude.

    @Yuki2718

    do you know if @gorhill is for or against disabling ff's built-in tracking protection for ubo users?

    i have an urgent problem with ublock which is reproducable in a fresh profile.
    firefox74 + ubo latest
    user filter
    Code:
    kicker.de##^script:has-text(www.tisoo)
    not filtered. none of script:has-text() filters are working.
    firefox 73 is doing right.
    bug? error by design? feature?

    The script is already filtered by a uBlock filters rule
    Code:
    kicker.de##^script:has-text((window);)
    Besides, your string doesn't match what is now in the script. It's "ww.tisoom" and not "www.tisoo".

    thx. the string inside is different watching over several loadings. target is
    Code:
    https://www.tisoomi-services.com/cookie
    and this string is splittet into several combinations. this is the batterie of strings here.
    Code:
    tisoomi
    www.tisoo
    www.tiso
    soomi
    tisoo
    .tiso
    of of those is caught.

    i have spend the last evening to create a new v75 profile from scratch - failure. i also copied firefox 74 + its profile to a portable - working. using the regular v74+profile - still fail.
    Code:
    kicker.de##^script:has-text((window);)
    i remember it but is also not shown in the netlogger.

    www.freenet.de is same matter (same list), but this one is used only (ublock list)
    Code:
    freenet.de##^script:has-text(===):has-text(/[\w\W]{16000}/)
    come on, dont fool me firefox. when reloading the page without cookie and storage cleanup tisoomi is filtered.

    i disabled violentmonkey and decentraleyes for testing purpose, no change - the first load of those pages still show ads.

    #edit
    resetted almost all firefox settings in prefs, means almost all extension were from scratch, unlikely, incl ublock, umatrix.
    Code:
    kicker.de##^script:has-text((window);)
    is showing up when reloading that page, not before (1st load)

    i set a block on b0.t.kicker.de - no ads.

    and now i need to revive that profile, jeez, again.

    thank you for clearing the situation, anyhow this crappy.

    #edit

    firefox is doing right, server is doing right, ublock also.
    i had the network anylzer already in mind before but did not used it. today i tried and kicker.de throw 302 and lead to https://www.kicker.de - when entering https full address anything is fine, filter patched.

    not sure if https_everywhere as extension could help out or upcoming https_only (v76).
