Ebay is still broken, very poor scrolling, unnecessary frame

  • https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261960089592 is an example of about 50% of ebay pages where the description is inside its own frame. Edge, Chrome, and Firefox don't do this. It makes it very hard to read the description, because the frame is only a third of the height of my browser. I've submitted yet another bug report as they haven't bothered fixing it in a year! Bug report is DNAWIZ-125482.

  • @hucker Except for a few buttons colors, the page looks the same here on Opera, Chrome, Edge and Firefox.

    Before I blame my adblockers (which I notice have removed a lot of banners of "similar items") and spend hours fiddling about, can you please confirm you aren't getting what I get? Here are the two screenshots, first Opera, then Chrome. Note I scrolled down past the "description" and "postage and payments" tabs. Under that there is a frame in Opera where the main description is, in this case with the blue Switch electronics logo at the top. But Chrome and others do not have this frame.

    That's how it looks in Opera:

    And that's how it looks in Chrome:

    I'm using Opera Developer 75 and Chrome Canary 90. I also checked with Opera Stable 73 and couldn't notice any difference.

    Thanks, it appears that if either adblock or ublock origin are running, the frame magically appears, I guess it's blocking a bit of code and mixing the page up so a frame is where it shouldn't be.

    How do I cancel or add a note to bug report DNAWIZ-125482 to say it's the extension's fault?

    Update - even if I undo all blocks I have created on Ebay, Adblock still screws up the page, there must be default blocking in it. Telling it not block anything on that domain seems to have fixed it.
