Camino just presents a blank page

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Seems to happen every time, regardless of resets, reloads, etc
This is related to ad-blocking, though I'm not yet sure how.
Component: General → Annoyance Blocking

Ah, this bit of JavaScript is wrapping the entire page in a <div> that claims its for advertising:

  <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"><!--
if (screen.width >= 1000) {
document.write ("<div class='advertOuter'><div class='advertPageWrapper'>");
}
//--></script>

which gets picked up by

div[class^="advert"]

which we added in bug 437919 to block some of the ads on herald-dispatch.com.

I think div[class^="advert"] is a legitimate rule to use in blocking and it's just unfortunate that this page is claiming the entire page is an advertisement.

Yeah, I wouldn't argue against a WONTFIX here. I doubt it's worth the trouble of whitelisting this site.

So, I'm not sure where or what div[class^="advert"] is blocking something at the moment. On the herald-dispatch.com, as mentioned in comment 2, I get a truckload of ads anyway (wrapped in div class="ad").
On the other hand, div[class^="advert"] is a fairly legit rule, in quite a few languages. A WONTFIX would be OK with me.


For Jeff Hosier, to white-list that particular site, adding the following to your userContent.css will work:
@-moz-document domain(theaa.com) {
	div[class^="advert"] {display:block !important;}
}

Sounds like a WF, then. Jeff, you should try complaining to the site; that's a pretty brain-dead thing to call something that isn't an advertisement.
