    Privacy Badger comes from EFF. Maybe that's a factor.

    I have two requests blocked by uBO on the result page, which are a 1st-party `zig.js` script, blocked by EasyPrivacy's filter `/zig.js`.

    There is no order, all extensions are given the opportunity to inspect network requests, and uBO reports what it blocked itself.

    Use the logger to find out what uBO is doing internally, see if you get the 1st-party `zig.js` script on your side.

    Today I updated all lists. Next thing it broke YouTube, videos and comments wont load.

    Edit:
    Disabling built-in / uBlock filters fix the problem.
    Somethings wrong with such list.

    First I thought you meant Firefox 91 (Nightly), but I see it's a Chromium 91 issue, haha.
    I disabled Violentmonkey in Chromium for now.

    It's who do you trust. I trust uBO but not Brave.

    The brave blocker is limited, ublock not. And brave is limited itself, not my needs.

    I would definitely use both. On Firefox, uBO can uncloak CNAMes - on Chromium-based browsers like Brave this is not possible. So the Brave developers implemented that in the built-in adblocker. Hence, the built-in blocker and uBO complement each other. Needless to say, though, that uBO is much more powerful (because of Dynamic Filtering, its powerful logger etc.).

    Thanks for the notification, mood.

    Thought I would mention as it's an amusing sign of the changing times: there's an ad on the uBO "get" page in the Microsoft Add-ons Store. You can't zap it away either. :cautious:

    Yeah, you can install from the Chrome Webstore just fine with Edge.

    Ok, I installed that dev build but that ad for a sweepstakes is still there on the store page. Likely it's a list I'm missing. No big deal, it's not like that page is a daily visit kind of thing.

    Or it could be that they only show it in certain locations.

    Aha, that's prob.the case, then. Because really, you couldn't select it for zapping, nooping, anything. So I won't agonize over it, lol.
    Thanks for the tip. :)
