Should definitely be categorised as "xhr", this was fixed for uBO, forgot to fix for uMatrix.

Re: µBlock Origin thread

@gorhill: Is this mozillaZine thread http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=2965271 an official support/discussion thread for uBlock Origin? There is not really any official support thread for uBO. Wherever there is more activity is probably the best candidate for support/discussion...

Re: µBlock Origin thread

Basically, if I add a specific local file as a filterset (with or without other filtersets), uBlock Origin disregards some whitelist rules inside the file. As a result, if I visit e.g. https://forums.informaction.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=21619&start=30, uBlock Origin blocks the images from ...

Re: µBlock Origin thread

To be clear, the logger stuff was from a working instance. Ok, at first I thought you were saying the logger was reporting the filter even when not working. If the logger does not report the filter, then I have a pretty good suspicion of where the issue is. For performance consideration, uBO will s...

Not sure. You say when the issue occurs the problematic cosmetic filter is still reported in the logger?

Re: µBlock Origin thread

Some reckless testing indicates that may not occur unless blocking all websockets by default. Do you see it if you add this filter? *$websocket Ok I see. The filter '*$websocket' or equivalent will force uBO to inject a Content Security Policy header to prevent websocket connections to occur. When ...

@gorhill: At what point do generic cosmetic filters kick in? And what does uBlock Origin do when it hits the DOM to determine generic cosmetic filters?

Re: µBlock Origin thread

Just to clarify before trying to put together another formal issue, is this supposed to be a valid uBlock Origin filter or not? ||::1^ Not sure if that filter has always caused this since I've use uBlock Origin or if it's a recent regression I thought such case should never happen, but then you jus...

To reply to this comment in another thread (my emphasis): There are solutions, such as ABE or another extension like RequestPolicy/Policeman/µMatrix, but they take more effort to manage. ABE requires writing an appropriate rule, and the other extensions will make all your permissions site-specific ,...

Re: µBlock Origin thread

Anyway, back to the logger's inspector being blank, I noticed that issue also occurs with arstechnica, and I think it is because currently some resource there isn't finishing loading. Thanks for investigating, it does appear this could be the cause, the injected script to analyse/report the DOM doe...

Try uBO's inspector tool. It's the "</>" button at the top of the logger page.
