Browser / Version: Firefox Preview Nightly 200405 (🦎 76.0a1-20200403063228)
Operating System: Huawei P20 Lite (Android 8.0.0) - 1080 x 2280 pixels, 19:9 ratio (~432 ppi density), Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (Android 7.0) - 1440 x 2560 pixels (~577 ppi pixel density)

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Navigate
  2. Observe the "Share" icon.

Expected Behavior:
The share counter is displayed.

Actual Behavior:
The share counter is not displayed.


  1. With "Standard" protection the share counter displayed.
  2. Screenshot attached.
OS: iOS → Android
Priority: -- → P3

Funny enough, the share counts don't appear in Chrome either, because the AddThis scripts are blocked there as well. I have to whitelist these resources for them to appear:

We will likely need to yellow-list those scripts for the counts to appear. Perhaps we could add a shim to hide the counts, and show the user an option to opt into showing AddThis-driven social media content?

Blocks: tp-addthis
No longer blocks: tp-breakage
Whiteboard: [tp-yellowlist-active][tp-shim-content][tp-embedded-media]

Because this bug's Severity has not been changed from the default since it was filed, and it's Priority is P3 (Backlog,) indicating it has been triaged, the bug's Severity is being updated to S3 (normal.)

Severity: normal → S3

The issue still occurs, with ETP - Strict share counter is not displayed.
