Yes, it does work in GNOME.  I think I used it in StumpWM when it didn’t
work.  The session was not wrapped in dbus-launch.  Now I’m using EXWM,
which is started within dbus-launch, and the ad blocker does work.

I suspect that the only problem was that DBus wasn’t working properly
when starting StumpWM without the dbus-launch wrapper.  I hope this
information will be helpful to people from the future who find this old
bug report through a web search.
