Ad banners on the left

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/53.0.2785.21 Safari/537.36 OPR/40.0.2306.0 (Edition developer)

Steps to reproduce:

Open any page with Yandex.Direct (direct.yandex.com) ads in Firefox Focus or Safari with enabled integration (e.g. https://geektimes.ru/post/285682).


Actual results:

Banners are not being blocked.


Expected results:

I should've seen a clean page without any banners.

The following Yandex domains are blocked

 "Yandex": {
                    "http://www.yandex.com/": [
                        "metrica.yandex.com.tr",
                        "metrika.yandex.kz",
                        "metrika.yandex.by",
                        "metrika.yandex.ua",
                        "metrika.yandex.ru",
                        "metrica.yandex.com",
                        "advertising.yandex.ru",
                        "advertising.yandex.com",
                        "direct.yandex.ru",
                        "direct.yandex.com",
                        "appmetrika.yandex.ru",
                        "appmetrica.yandex.com",
                        "appmetrica.yandex.com.tr",
                        "api-metrika.yandex.com",
                        "api-metrika.yandex.ru"
                      ]
}

Not sure if the Disconnect list is often updated in batch, or if we do one-off updates. Is there a tracking bug with domain updates?

This list lacks a lot of other important hosts.

an.yandex.ru (ads)
bs.yandex.ru (ads)
analytics.mobile.yandex.net (appMetrika)
awaps.yandex.ru (ads)
kiks.yandex.ru (tracker)
yandexadexchange.net

This tracker (metrika) is installed literally on every website in CIS:
mc.yandex.ru
metrica.yandex.com.ua
metrica.yandex.by
metrica.yandex.com
metrica.yandex.com.tr
metrica.yandex.kz
metrica.yandex.ru
metrica.yandex.ua
metrika.yandex.com
metrika.yandex.com.tr
metrika.yandex.com.ua

Does it mean that Firefox won't block those trackers in Private mode? Should I open an issue about this on mozilla-services/shavar-prod-lists?

This should be reported upstream to the list owners. I will find out how that works.
