URL(s) where the issue occurs

Any New York Times article, for example

Describe the issue

Articles on NYTimes.com has a "Comments" bubble button somewhere in their article (position indeterminate) that opens up a side bar of comments. With uBlock Origin on, this button is nowhere to be found, so one cannot access the comment section of any article.

Screenshot(s)

Versions

  • Browser/version: Chrome 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit)
  • uBlock Origin version: 1.12.4

Settings

No changes to default settings

Notes

I looked around a bit but did not find out much. It does not seem like the button belongs to any "*-ad" class that might be blocked.

Thanks for the replies. It seems that the problem is even weirder than I thought. I re-installed uBlock to make sure there is no change to default settings. This is what consistently happens on my machine:

  • Go to the NYTimes article above, with uBlock on. The comment button is there.
  • Refresh the page, now the button is gone.

Another way this problem appears:

  • Go to the NYTimes article above, with uBlock off. The comment button is there.
  • Turn on uBlock, refresh the page, now the button is gone.

Can you now reproduce it in these two cases? Thanks!

Looks like a timing issue. I can also reproduce with ABP with EasyList/EasyPrivacy only, so not specific to uBO. It does appears EasyPrivacy is needed.

That's right, not using EasyPrivacy in Chrome makes the button appear. The issue can also be reproduced directly in Firefox 53.0.3 (just go to the article with uBO on, the button is not there).

One way I can make the issue disappear is by un-blocking https://contextual.media.net/bidexchange.js, but that is not a proper solution.
