Elements disappear by clicking on it at extreme-down.one

  • Hello everyone,

    Since I switched to Vivaldi, I noticed an amusing bug on
    !!! https://www.extreme-down.one (MAY contain redirect bad links) !!!

    Every link is a trap ! By clicking on them, the entire link (text or image) disappear.
    The only way to reach the following pages is to open in a new tab with right click ONLY, the Ctrl + click shortcut doesn't work.
    I don't know if this bug exists on others platform (Mac and Linux) but i've tested in Chrome browser and it work.
    Can you fix this Vivaldi please ?1_1501747779982_before.png 0_1501747779981_after.png

  • @sebamaciolek I don't have such problems on this site, maybe try without extensions enabled. I'm on osx, but this should be platform independent.

  • There appears to be more going on at this site than meets the eye. When I visited the site with Vivaldi 1.10.867.48 (Stable channel, 64-bit) on Win10 Pro, the first movie link (Fast and Furious) I clicked on redirected to a full-frontal porn site. Backing out of that, all subsequent clicks on links at the site went directly to their linked pages as they should - including the Fast and Furious link. Either the site itself is malicious, has been hacked, or is carrying a malicious ad. As a result, my trust level in the site and its coding has dropped to zero.

    @Blackbird I added a warning at first post about harmful links.

  • @luetage Thanks for the advice. I disabled all extensions and tried one by one and I found it.
    It's Chrono, the download manager.
    I don't know why this happen only with this website

  • @Gwen-Dragon Sorry for the harmful link 😖

    No problem. It is not your site making bad things.
    Than can happen on the web. Some websites inject strange ads, that's why i use a adblocker in Vivaldi like uBlockOrigin to get rid of bad content.

  • FWIW, upon looking at the site a bit further, they apparently are employing some kind of site/server coding that auto-redirects a first-click on their movie listings to a rotating series of ad/porn sites. Once that has happened, further clicks on movie listings seem to operate normally. Clearing their cookies and revisiting the site causes the process to consistently repeat, usually with a different redirected ad. It's the first time I've run into this particular kind of website click-bait revenue enhancement mechanism.

  • Hi , I am experiencing the same thing with (yet another) download site. It is called eztv dot ag.
    Made screenshots. It does not throw you into another site, but the elemants simply disappear.

    This is the first screen. You should be able to click on the icons or text shown.

    Instead the clicked on items simply vanish.

    And this is my current Vivaldi version

    I have Adguard Blocker and Send Anywhere installed as extension - tried disabling it. Didn't make any difference.
    Curious to what it can be...

    OH yes: Other browsers do not have this problem...

    Thanks for your help!

    Try update to 1.11 Stable or 1.12 Snapshot.

  • Hi Gwen,

    Just went through both the updates and it didn't solve the issue 😞
    Any other suggestions?

    @rick_nl Did not like to test such streaming sites because of german jurisdiction.

  • They are actually not German. They have been using several extensions (.it .ch, and others) - but ok.
    I'll have to try and live with it then , it is not a big thing and I can simply return to Chrome for this particular thing.

    And it is not streaming - it is downloading torrents.

    Still if you do think of anything...

  • @rick_nl With Vivaldi 1.11.917.43 (Stable, 64-bit) on my Win10-64 Pro system, all the elements at the eztv site work OK, as far as I can tell. Clicking on an element/link expands that element into a detailed description panel about the particular product selected. I observed no missing elements as a result. I always use Ghostery and ScriptSafe extensions with Vivaldi on sites (such at this) which I don't inherently trust, but it's hard to see how the greater restrictions imposed by those two extensions would cause a problematic site or browser to actually open easier or more correctly. Hence, I suspect there's something else at work, unique to your system or settings.
