    This was about an old version of RC, so some of those mentioned problems are resolved now. My next post is about the current version.
    Both of issues were resolved in 6.1.256.1292 RC.

    Sorry again for not answering all the questions in time.

    Another RC released today, actually only one change, but pretty important. The thread is updated.

    I can't reproduce this. Does it happen in other browsers too?

    It happens in Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 x64 with all recent updates. It doesnt happen with Firefox. I dont know about other browsers, because I dont use them....

    Internet Explorer can sometimes be a hassle to deal with in terms of ad blocking. In the past I've encountered ads that were blocked in every other browser except IE due to certain rules not working for IE.

    That said, I did test this with IE11 on Windows 10 and I couldn't reproduce it. I guess I should download Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 and create virtual machines for both for testing purposes. :)

    Hello, rest assured, the ad-blocking works perfect :) , but there is certainly an impact from Adguard 6.1 on IE11-YouTube-buffering & playing. If I put Adguard OFF, it buffers immediately till the end of the clip.
    Just to help you out, I did some additional testing. I put Flash Player's Global Storage Settings panel to "unlimited" (https://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html) and I also did a reset of the advanced settings of my Internet Explorer 11, followed by a reboot (as advised).
    But both operations did not help, the problem remains :(
    Have a nice sunday !

    Ah, Flash. Yeah, I don't have that installed on my operating systems.

    Try going here and enabling the HTML5 player and see if it helps any: https://www.youtube.com/html5

    Hello again dear Adguard-team,
    as I have the time on a lazy sunday afternoon in Belgium :cool: I did some hours of deep testing today.
    1) with the latest 6.1 RC 1302
    a) First of all I desactivated Flash player in both Internet Explorer and Firefox as both support html5 fully for the YouTube site.
    Result: the buffering problem remains in IE at the end of each clip (for longer clips sometimes earlier) , Firefox plays perfect.
    I desactivate Adguard > result : IE buffers and plays perfectly.
    b) Then I completely de-installed Flash player with Revo Uninstaller, so also remainders in register and folders are cleaned & rebooted.
    Result: the buffering problem remains in IE at the end of each clip (for longer clips sometimes earlier) , Firefox plays perfect.
    I desactivate Adguard > result : IE buffers and plays perfectly.

    2) Then I completely deinstalled the Adguard 6.1, and cleaned also remaining folders and register entries with Revo Uninstaller.
    After rebooting I did a clean install of Adguard 6.0.226.1108.
    Result : no more buffering problems in IE 11 : it buffers and plays perfect on YouTube (also Firefox), even with the Flash players activated !

    Logical conclusion : as I already suggested in earlier posts (see initially on last Tuesday 23/08) there was no YouTube-buffering/playing-issue in IE11 with Adguard 6.0.
    This bug started in IE11 with the last 3 or 4 bèta/RC-versions of Adguard 6.1.
    So I think you have to look for changed code or functions in our beloved program since these updates... which must have an impact on the buffering in IE11.
    Hope you can find it to solve this before final 6.1-release, otherwise the regular customers (the non-bèta-testers) will certainly start reporting this bug.
    For the moment I will stick to 6.0-version.
    Please let me know when I can start testing with a new bèta/RC where this issue is solved.
    Hope all this testing and info will help you out :)
    Best regards, Rik

    disable extensions button -> OK
    disabling every single extension -> not OK

    Wasn't able to reproduce this issue either. Even with your filters list.

    Adguard doesn't block images with urls like:
    data:image/jpeg;charset=

    Yep, that's intentional. "data:image" strings are often too huge so checking that huge string with basic rules becomes very "expensive" operation.

    Still it should be possible (maybe add an option to enable blocking it with a warning it can cause browsing slowdown).
