[Solved] Suddenly I cannot turn on ad-blocking for YouTube

  • This happened just this morning (2021-04-30). I am on a Macbook Air with M1 chip running macOS Big Sur 11.3 and Opera Version:76.0.4017.94 (arm64). The shield in the address bar when I'm in YouTube shows an X and when I click the shield. I see two messages:

    Ad Blocker is turned off for this site.
    Tracker Blocker is turned off for this site.

    There is a button for each labeled "Turn on for this site" but the button does not work for YouTube.

    What happened? How do I fix?

  • @leisureguy Problem has cleared with nothing done on my part. I didn't even exit and restart Opera — but the next time I brought up YouTube in a tab, the ad and tracker blockers were working again.
