This website:

comes up with a message saying "We've noticed you are using an ad
blocker...". This is caused by the setting "Prevent tracking activities
by known websites". If I also check the option which says "Warn me when
known tracking activities were detected" (that should be "are detected"
I think) this creates a dialog with an option to "Unblock", but
selecting Unblock doesn't work, it just refreshes the page and the
notice comes up again.

These settings are in Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy and Security.

How is this supposed to work? Maybe it is a bug?

OK, well, this is stupid: I use AdBlock Plus, which I "disabled everywhere" before visiting the site. They still complained. What a bunch of idiots must have written their code.

I do the same test and the site did not complain.

I tried again with ABP disabled everywhere AND the OP's setting "Prevent tracking activities by known websites" disabled and it let me in.
