Steps to reproduce:

I sent you a screen shot

Actual results:

A site that has always displayed and performed perfectly does no longer display thumbnail or main images for item for sale on gumtree.com.au, Australia's main website for hundreds of thousands of sellers and buyers nationally. Your latest update has rendered this website dysfunctional. I have only ever used the lowest level of privacy settings and it's nothing that I have done. I am not prepared to lower the security settings to nothing in order to access this site. You've gone too far with your default settings breaking websites to the point of now having to take a retro step back other browsers in order to access them.

Expected results:

You're getting too intrusive with features that most of us seasoned users don't want. Security without nonsense. That's it.

Bugbug thinks this bug should belong to this component, but please revert this change in case of error.

Ever confirmed: true

I can reproduce with ETP Strict (opt-in/on in private browsing windows). Skiplisting i.ebayimg.com with the pref urlclassifier.trackingSkipURLs does indeed fix the breakage. Contrary to what's implied in Comment 0, I'm not able to reproduce with ETP Standard.

Since ebayimg.com appears to be a CDN I've filed https://github.com/disconnectme/disconnect-tracking-protection/issues/225 to see if Disconnect will investigate whether this domain can be moved to the Content category (which will fix this breakage).
