    Hi Eddy,

    Thanks for your patience. I asked our developer to look into this. He found that that site is removing AdBlock's hiding rules, probably through JavaScript, when the search button is clicked.

    He's continuing to explore whether we can either prevent or get around this. I'll post back here when we know more!

    Hi Eddy,

    Our apologies for the delay in getting back to you! This should be fixed in an update to AdBlock scheduled to be released in early April.
