widget_update_callback and Elementor - Cache cleared on every page load #1485

We have been seeing some issues lately where cache was being cleared on every page load because of calling rocket_clean_domain() via the widget_update_callback filter.

@webtrainingwheels observed that all reported cases used Elementor.

I just tested this on a staging site and found it to be true.

Elementor uses the filter:

Elementor Issue: elementor/elementor#5844

HS tag: widget_update_callback

Just another observation - this can be a really bad combo when Autoptimize is active too. AO listens for cache clearing and it can result in server overload. Similar to: futtta/autoptimize#195

Removing the action on widget_update_callback if Elementor is active seems to be the most straightforward solution. Do you see any other one?

Can't think of anything better either and that seems to have the least impact overall. 👍
