Failed to download easylist.txt & easyprivacy.txt in qutebrowser

Currently, qutebrowser can not download easylist.txt & easyprivacy.txt from the default hosting site, easylist.to. It impacts the browser’s content blocking ability. Here is a workaround before easylist.to fixes the problem.

  1. sudo cp /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/qutebrowser/config/configdata.yml /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/qutebrowser/config/configdata.yml .saved
  2. sudo vi /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/qutebrowser/config/configdata.yml
  3. replace “easylist.to” with “easylist-downloads.adblockplus.org
  4. save the changes and restart qutebrowser.
