For example, the link Adchoices is my whitewhale (topic title "Adchoices is my whitewhale") doesn't open. There is no problem when using firefox, so it is NOT DNS related.. It looks like a smartscreen problem, because the only domain in the querylog (after a refresh) is nav.smartscreen.microsoft.com (allowed)
Anybody knows what setting I need to change in edge chromium? I only appear to be able to turn off smartscreen entirely (not recommended)
And that's with pi-hole running, though I have not updated to the very very latest pi-hole quite yet.
edit: updated to latest pi-hole, and that URL still loads fine in Edge. Since the URL contains "adchoices" my strong suspicion is that something ad block related is interfering, but my pi-hole (which is more or less default config) isn't blocking it on my network..
I think this may have been a fluke, the topic title just happened to be written is such a way that it triggered a /adchoices filter. Any other title, or the word adchoices in a different place in the title, would not have tripped it.
I'm fine with users keeping their adblocks here, there's no current or future need to monitize this support platform. But thank you very much for finding that so quickly and coming by to help us out!!
Edit: And that's awesome that Jeff has his own extension with his avatar!
Off-topic but still: Why are users still running adblockers like UBO ? I do not run anything besides Pi-hole (with standard list(s)) and this is perfectly fine for me. But I may have simply be trained to look away from the remaining few ads that may (or not) be still there. At the very least I don't recall having seen any obtrusive blinking ads in a very very long time (> years).
