Adguard combining chrome extension ZenMate seems doesn't block ads

That's right -- Adguard's HTTPS filtration cannot work along with ZenMate.

Workaround for now:
1. Disable HTTPS filtration in Adguard
2. Install Adguard's chrome extension

HTTPS pages will be filtered by extension.
HTTP -- will be filtered by Adguard for Windows.

Ok, i've found the problem.

ZenMate uses "double-SSL" for https web sites.

What ZenMate do:
1. Opens SSL tunnel to their proxy
2. Sends CONNECT request and builds a tunnel to the web site
3. Transfers original traffic (crypted, it is https after all) through this tunnel

Now we know what to do so we will fix this in the next patch.

Hi, can you also check if this is the case with Tor Browser which has https everywhere enabled by default. https websites do not seem to be working in tor. http website seems to work fine.

Thanks to bringing this issue, i had same trouble with Tor Browser i was blaming browser itself however as avatar confirm and will check we will have to wait. Also i just cant wait if he can manage to cut high CPU usage down with version 6.

Hi there, the incompatibility with ZenMate has been addressed in the 5.10 release that's currently in the beta testing phase. :) Regarding TOR Browser, I personally have nothing to report yet. At some point I'll need to download it and see if all it requires is manually importing the certificate as I think that's the root cause of that issue. However if this issue is persisting, please create a new topic regarding this in this section of the forums so it can be properly tracked.
