    That's why Adguard browser extension has "integration mode". Extension will work on every website without risk of "breaking" by JS injection.

    I'm talking about the Windows version and not any specific installed browser extension.
    And where is that so-called "integration mode"?

    If you install one the Adguard browser extensions (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, etc.) it'll detect Adguard for Windows and automatically change to integration mode (integration mode enabled = blue Adguard extension icon). Meaning, you can use the browser extension as a replacement for the Adguard Assistant on problematic websites like this one. Forcing the Assistant to load on a site like this can/will break the site and its functionality hence why it's disabled.

    But there's one limitation to this. If you primarily use Internet Explorer there is no browser extension available. Hopefully when Project Spartan (Internet Explorer 12? Edge?!? Or just Spartan?) is released with Windows 10 an extension will finally be possible.

    Yep, I'm using IE mainly.
    I don't care if the site would break, I just want the button there and a nice option to force it would be nice. If it is too broken for me, my problem then.

    That's generally a good idea to have any option available to user rather than not. This case is not an exception, and we would like to implement such option one day, but it's not that easy. So expect it, but not too soon.
