    Anyone know how to do this - either manual rule or with the dropper tool?

    I tried with the dropper tool, but could not find a spot on the page.

    there you go!! That is the answer for blocking this behavior for uBlock Origin too :)

    Option 1: Create XHR block rule, for bloomberg.com. (in My Rules tab) <this rule created with dynamic URL filtering>
    Code:
    bloomberg.com http://www.bloomberg.com xmlhttprequest block
    Option 2: Block offending script directly. <better option>
    Code:
    bloomberg.com http://assets.bwbx.io/business/public/javascripts/application script block
    This kind of functionality, i do not think, you can block with the Element Picker. It is more towards static based content. Here in this case, the data is fetched dynamically through XHR (initiated from Script). So, you need to use the built-in logger to figure out the offending XHR/Script requests..

    Edit 1: Updated rule for option 2, and is the preferred one of the both.

    Thanks for your reply. Will give your options a try.

    Probably don't want all the XHRs (or scripts, if they are the culprit), as that disallows aspects I do want. In this case, it is disqus, but it can be other features that I've encountered on other sites. I'm guessing more granularity is needed - that is, specific XHRs, rather than all.

    Also, yes, thanks for confirming... I suspected that it was just something that the dropper cannot pick out.

    Will give it a go to see, as I may be wrong.
