    Amazon's site, smile or otherwise, blinks several times when loading any page. I have tried several other ad blocking extensions & have disabled all other extensions when testing to remove any variables. This issue only happens with Adguard. This occurs regardless of filters as well. Anyone have a solution?

    I wasn't able to reproduce the problem. What browser version exactly do you use?

    And what filters do you have enabled?

    @vasily_bagirov I am on Chrome 53.0.2785.143 m (64-bit) @Boo Berry I have just the English filters enabled, Version 1.0.96.27. I found a couple reviews on the Google Chrome webstore that echoes what I've been going through:

    "Since the latest update, some websites are behaving strangely. Amazon is a prime example - the content seems to "flicker" a half dozen times after loading."

    By Bryan T, September 21st. It's on the 2nd page.

    "Recently, it's started to make sites like Amazon behave strangely. Disabling it fixes the problem."

    By Kevin Lewis, September 17th. Also on the 2nd page, a little further down. Sorry, I wish I could link to them individually.

    This exchange was what I was looking for. I recently started having the "blinking" problem - constant reloading of Amazon pages - disabling the Adguard extension stopped the problem.
    Thanks for your help!

    I see the issue is marked closed on github. Is the fix available?

    I was hoping for the same thing but the version in the chrome webstore is still from September. Pretty disappointed to be honest.

    I can confirm the same issue in the latest Safari on MacOS. It only started recently.

    I'm not sure why this thread was closed.

    I'm currently using Chrome_v54.0.2840.99 m (64-bit) with Adguard browser extension beta v2.5.1 from November 23, 2016 and Amazon pages still blink as before.

    Huh, sorry for that, the issue was closed indeed, but then it was brought back by one of the consequent changes.

    We'll push the next beta version tomorrow fixing it.
