It’s actually uBlock and uMatrix both. Aol must’ve changed something in their injected advertising. I now get this navigating to mail.aol.com:
If you tell uBlock to temporarily let it through, you get the uMatrix block.
Running uBlock, uMatrix and NoScript (allow all, block XSS)
I can go to www.aol.com (logged in or not) but there’s no way get to the inbox.
Firefox 60, developer.
Anyone know how to remediate this? I’m a uMatrix/uBlock novice.
Update. Found a solution, don’t know how good it is Re: privacy.
If I set uBlock Origin to temporarily allow “guce.advertising.com”, then when I get to the uMatrix block, in the uMatrix “drop-down”, I “GREEN” “guce.advertising.com”, then AOL mail loads. Once that’s done, I open uMatrix preferences, and in the “My Rules” tab, I can delete the permission for “guce.advertising.com”.
Once logged into AOL mail, the problem does not recur. However, since AOL mail expires your login frequently (12-24 hrs?), I suppose I’ll have to go thru this every time. Less than optimal.
