@terrorist96 this site uses Instart Logic, the only way to fix your issue right now is

  1. Use uBO-Extra and manually add msn.com which can lead to site breakage, all discussed here:
    #458 (comment)
  2. Use Firefox, which is not affected by Instart Logic.

@okiehsch Thanks for letting me know. Why is Firefox immune but Chrome is not? Is this a limitation of uBO? And is it something that could it be fixed in a future version? Or is this not being pursued (absent installing the Extra addon and potential site breakages)?
Thank you.

Instart Logics code bails out if it detects that you use Firefox, so it has nothing to do with which adblocker you use.
If you use Firefox no Instart Logic redirects, ads etc.

Ok thanks. I also want to thank you for being so responsive. It's a nice change of pace compared to the EasyList Github page where I have year old issues that still haven't been addressed or replied to. Glad I switched from ABP to uBO and don't have to rely solely on EasyList maintainers anymore.

It's because of all the exception filters in EasyList.

If you have the patience, you could craft a proper csp=-based filter to use the whitelist approach to defeat all the exception filters in EasyList. For example, this is a start:

||msn.com^$csp=default-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline' 'unsafe-eval' blob: data: akamaized.net *.akamaized.net *.akamaized.net live.com *.live.com s-msn.com *.s-msn.com

I think he sees g00 stuff because msn.com is not part of uBO-extra.

@gorhill I don't know what csp but I guess I'll look into that.

I do have uBlock Origin Extra installed. Maybe MSN.com needs to be added?

New IL defuser approach, available in 2.35: https://github.com/gorhill/uBO-Extra/releases/tag/2.35.

I don't know msn.com enough to know whether this break anything or not. Would be nice if people can test. Keep in mind all the exception filters in EasyList.

I do not see any breakage on my end with videos, animations, login etc. and it "feels" much "smoother"
than IL-defuser v3.

It definitely blocks the ads from showing up, but I still see the "AdChoices" button pop up next to where the ad would normally be. This is a low-priority issue to me as the actual ads are blocked, but I did want to point it out.

I still see the "AdChoices"

That's probably because of all the exception filters, the 1st thing to take care of is defusing IL stuff without breaking any functionality on the site.
