Yahoo (video) Placemarker yet Video Plays


URL: https://www.yahoo.com/gma/violence-inte ... ories.html

With yahoo.com set to temporarily allow (& if I'm understanding just what that means, by going to Custom, then all items are checkmarked), I get a semi-transparent placemarker (showing, in this case, <MEDIA>@https://gcdn2.2mdn.net) yet you can see the video playing underneath?


No real clue how this is supposed to work, why the placemarker is even showing up?

Now it could be that there is an actual placemarker blocking 2mdn.net (you can't Shift+click it, like in the good 'ol days) & that the video itself is coming from the allowed site, yahoo.com, don't know?


FF 72, 20191126093448, NoScript 11.0.10rc1



In another profile, with uBlock Origin installed, I only get the "yahoo" video, no placemarker.
Similarly 2mdn.net does not show up in NoScript's dropdown, so figure that ubo is filtering that out.
(Profile originally looked at only has NoScript installed.)



(It is typical for Yahoo "videos" to have no relationship to the article at hand. It it typical for a Yahoo "article" to have no relevance, period ;-).)
