Ads not blocked when watching Youtube playlist in fullscreen mode

To reproduce, simply watch any playlist on Youtube, watch it to completion (or click forward skip), and an ad may show up, unblocked.

    I'm sorry, the title is correct, but i forgot to write "in fullscreen mode" in the post body. Just to reiterate, this behavior is happening when watching a Youtube playlist in FULLSCREEN mode only. Adblock is functioning properly when not in fullscreen.

    Hi Albert,

    Is this happening only in Safari 9, or in Safari 8 as well?

    Yes, it happens there too. I just checked on my laptop still running Yosemite and Safari 8.

    Hi Albert,

    OK. I know you said this is happening with any playlist, but I'd like to try it with one where you're seeing the behavior. Can you please provide a link?

    Thanks for the response. I don't have any experience in web programming at the moment, but I do happen to be learning it through a MOOC from Coursera! Therefore don't expect anything just yet, but if I get good soon, maybe I will contribute!
