Website: TheHindu.com
Browser: Safari (Private mode) on ios 12.4.6
AdGuard: Free version 4.1.1 (668)

This nagging pop-up always comes up on the site:

AdGuard element blocking highlights that it is caused by some service from TinyPass:

Blocking it using AdGuard doesn't help as scrolling on the website gets disabled.

When you add this rule to user filter, is it working then?

Code:
@@||thehindu.com^$generichide

It should not break anything as the rule just disables generic rule aka fixing adblock detection. I will check again later.

EDIT: Cannot reproduce even with US VPN :(

Ok, I cleared all user rules and checked again. When AdGuard is ON, the website breaks - scrolling is disabled, and you can't interact with the website (can't click any links). When Adguard is switched OFF (reload without content blockers on Safari), the website works fine but with ads and trackers.

Adding the rule @@||thehindu.com^$generichide changes nothing on the website. Note that on Firefox Focus, the website loads without ads and works fine without any issues.

(I will check on Safari on another device and update this post.)
