According to its Tranco + Alexa ranking, this site is among the most popular (which we are currently defining to be the top 500).

Priority: -- → P1

Erik is working on a model update to potentially address this.

Assigning severity. Priority-wise we should still get to this sooner rather than later.

Severity: -- → S3

When testing the model update in bug 1638187 I found that this field was not being recognized (score: 0.5207634486061282).

It's worth noting that this is a live page, though, and these results have been somewhat flaky.

Bumping down to P2 since although this is a popular website, the issue is a false negative, not a false positive and the user can use the context menu as a fallback.

Priority: P1 → P2
