Bug#806325: epiphany-browser: AdBlock does not seem to be working

With ads disabled I don't see ads when I visit the Phoronix website and 
if I reenable ads I definitely see the difference.

The simple-adblock website does indeed show 'Not working' in both cases 
(unlike in Firefox+Adblock Plus). Maybe that's a limitation of the 
adblocking engine in Epiphany.
