@Gwen-Dragon lol.. Gwen again! And yes apparently it was AdBlock. But I would never think that AdBlock would detect the slider as ad. I mean it's a shopping website everything is about AD of course but.. lol.
Thank you again!
But what I think I will do is just develop a module for machine learning, defining the behavior of these YouTube website changes against adblockes, and figure out a way to outmatch some strings of binaries related to ads…🤔
To the drawing board!
@Pathduck It's more an invalid request but probably won't happen as [adblocker] lists can't do this.
An userscript is the way to do that (and vivaldi already support them).
@paul1149 Try the list above. If the "skip ads" (which should be ad-less/blank) screen is still present...
If you have Tampermonkey you simply need to install the script from this page
Download this script
Drop into Vivaldi root folder (so it's easier to find it again)
Enable developer mode on top (probably optional)
Drop the file in the window and install it.
Thanks for checking. I wonder if it has to do with playing a number of videos on this site in a row. As I have been starting from a clean install adding back extensions, re-implementing my settings one-by-one and then each time trying it again, possibly that has been too much. But normally a site would inform the user that the max number of articles/videos etc was reached, not just hang.
Also, I just found out that when it does stop, using the extension "Clear Session" causes it to work again. This extension clears cookies, session and local storage from the current website.
So it might be that somewhere local storage is being gummed up.
Re: [Recently](running 'Ad block extensions' is using more CPU and making V unresponsive)
I've seen similar behavior on Linux x64 version (multiple versions of Vivaldi). I have several addons, but the only adblock I use is only use uBlock Origin . I've been hesitant to report as a bug becaused, like @yes-aravind , I see the spike in the Background Page, not anything specific to the addon. Also, It looks like the treads may have some relation to rendering (--type=renderer) in my Linux System Monitor, but not always. I've tried iwth both hardware acceleration on and off. It also has a very clear correlation to the numbers of tabs opened/closed. Very large numbers of tabs will cause this issue (e.g. list of news links and opening many sites in background tabs to read later will, over time, see this slowdown occur even if all tabs are closed.). Restarting Vivaldi will clear the issue such that a site that was taking 10-20 seconds to open will open near instantly.
@dodger said in Continue Support for Ad-blocking Extensions:
@Catweazle I use this variant named AdGuard. It Installed in OS and works perfect.
Also, it is about moving the adblocker to the OS instead of installing an extension in the browser.
In general, I block ads across the Android OS by setting my private dns to Adguard's DNS server (I tried including it, but it flagged the post as spam) and then running Blokada with various adblock lists and Adguard DNS.
The Private DNS for Adguard just makes sure that if anything makes an end run around Blokada's pseudo-VPN, it fails because the DNS server will return NXDOMAIN.
It would be possible for Vivaldi for Android to have native adblocking because Opera has it and that's based on Chromium too. Maybe it will be added someday.
@vbop said in Vivaldi need to have in-built Ad Blocker, Multi threaded Download Manager and Internet Speed up:
I fail to see why a built in ad-blocker is necessary since there are several very good ad-block extensions like ublock. Just because Opera has it is not a good excuse. In fact I would be very wary about built in stuff like ad-blockers/download managers since they have the potential to cause privacy issues.
How better DL manager can cause privacy issues? Also - ad-blocker can at the worst improve user privacy, i.e. prevent from tracking user…
Also - those were the features of the good ol' Opera...
