Adblock breaks website formatting on Wuxiaworld.com


#1

Description

As of May 16 enabling ad blocking breaks Wuxiaworld.com’s website formatting so that only text and some cached images are displayed.

This occurs on both desktop and mobile versions of Brave.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Visit wuxiaworld.com
  2. enable/disable adblocking

Actual result:

Expected result:
https://1drv.ms/u/s!AgYAqTSeV_Kw3UFntYH8zEc9KYXQ

Reproduces how often:
100%

Brave Version

about:brave info:

Brave 66.0.3359.158 (Official Build) (32-bit)
Revision d9c54364a37608f9f43c4805386a6bd07de2a640-

Reproducible on current live release:
I think this may be a list problem rather than a build problem, but it is reproducible on live.

Additional Information
I think the website may use a third party service for both page formatting and ads, and the adblock is too aggressive blocking that third party. When blocking on the homepage, Brave shows upwards of 20 ads blocked, yet when not blocking I don’t see any ads at all on that page (there are many ads on other pages on the site, however, so the site definitely needs ad blocking).
