"Disable on this page only" for a YT video disables for ALL?

Postby The Binary Son » Sat Aug 09, 2014 6:53 pm

Hello!

I've been experimenting with adblock and youtube, and I've encountered something I'd like to see if it can be fix and/or worked around.

Let's say I go on youtube and watch "video 1." I want to disable adblock for this video so I can see the ads, so I go up to the button, select "disable on this page only" and then refresh to see the video with ads.

All of that is fine...

...HOWEVER,

afterwards, when I go to watch ANY OTHER VIDEO, adblock is STILL DISABLED, with the "disable on this page only" option checked off.

In other words, adblock seems to consider ALL VIDEO PAGES to be the SAME PAGE.

Is there ANY WAY I can fix this so that, if I do what I describe above, adblock is disabled ONLY for "video 1" and not every video????

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Hello,

If you choose "Disable on this page only" when viewing a YouTube video, the whitelist filter that gets added is incorrect. I've filed a bug report about this:
:arrow: https://issues.adblockplus.org/ticket/1192

  1. While viewing the YouTube video, copy the URL in the address bar to the clipboard.
  2. Click the Adblock Plus icon and choose Filter Preferences.
  3. Click the Custom Filters tab.
  4. From the Whitelist/Exceptions category, delete the filter that was added when you clicked "Disable on this page only":
    Code: Select all
    @@|https://www.youtube.com/watch?$document
  5. Click the Add Filter button and add a filter like the following. Replace the example video URL below with the one you copied to the clipboard.
    Code: Select all
    @@|https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljWcpj8N6ws$document

I guess the v= parameter in the query string is considered so unimportant that it should be stripped out, so that the exception rule will be general enough, analogous to removing pagewanted=all when making an exception rule for a news article.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.
