selecting elements using Assistant (selection mode) is opening them on some sites

Hi,

since today http://de.webfail.com shows an ad banner (only every other time). When using AGA to select it for being hidden it is not only selected but also clicked/opened. As that ad banner is badly made/implemented it does not open a new windo but opens the link in the same window making AGA disappear (== I cannot block that ad using AGA).

Please fix.

Thank you,
Dolfi


edit: This is an example of that banner:

We'll look into it.

Normally AGA creates an overlay above the banner (so it should not receive the click event).
Don't know why it does not work in this case.

FWIW: if I use a slow enough system (browser, latency) like my iPad the ad appaers *after* the page completely loaded (including fb comments which are the last element loaded (when no ad is on page) as far as I recognized) so there may be some special trick?

Looks like they use window.onload event before rendering ads.
