Adblock Prime "disable on [site] only"

This doesn't seem to work properly, at least with my settings. I wanted to disable Adblock Prime on DuckDuckGo, so that Moonchild could receive whatever amount of money ads get because of that deal, but the ads don't show up unless I set it to "disable everywhere".

if I set it to "disable everywhere" the ads show up fine (everywhere, of course).

Could my having third-party cookies disabled play some role in this?

No.

Do you search off a bookmark (or plugin) with customized settings?
If so, you might check your DDG advertisement settings.

It is set to allow advertisements. Incidentally, this issue impacts other sites as well (there are other sites that I have set to be "whitelisted").

Are there other Pale Moon add-ons that could get in the way? How about the Cookie Permissions Button, or the Cookie Control Panel?

Is there something in the filter preferences of Adblock Prime that could be causing an issue?

In the filter subscriptions tab, I have "EasyList" enabled and nothing else.

First, FTR, I don't use ABPrime, but I did install it yesterday to test on duckduckgo.com, and ads showed up just fine when the domain was whitelisted.

You can troubleshoot this for yourself by disabling all add-ons except the adblocker.
If the issue clears up, re-enable them one by one to find the culprit.

Do you mean something in about:config? Looking at the very few prefs there, I doubt it.

Or were you thinking of some personal custom filters you added manually?

If you have those, you can troubleshoot by unticking the box next to the custom filter group(s), or else just disable the individual filters that relate to domains where you have a problem. Again, to see if the issue clears up.

I'll try that out tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestions.

Actually... I just compared ABPrime with uBO and Adblock Latitude on duckduckgo when whitelisted, and realized that while whitelisting did display alot of content not previously shown with ABPrime, the ads at the very top did not display.
(They displayed with uBO and ABL.)

Then I did the same with ghacks.net, with similar result.

ABPrime has a couple of issues and is in need of a refresh. I plan to try to convert current day ABL back to overlay. Of course, two things need to happen first. Phoebus 3.0 aka Phoebus Ascendant.. and Borealis Navigator.

BTW, someone move this to the BinOC Projects board.
