    Default Allow ads from Amazon when the device is a Tablet/Cell

    So it appears that the Amazon mobile app crashes if you block their ads from being served.

    Is there any way to accomplish this with a Web Filter Rule?

    Something like this maybe?

    Sure, but its unlikely to work because SSL.
    If you're doing SSL inspection then its likely thats causing the issue not ad blocking...

    No SSL inspection so that shouldn't be the issue.

    I'm confused why it wouldn't work due to SSL as I'm just trying to see the domain? I'm probably missing something though as I'm new at this.

    Without SSL Inspection, WebFilter only sees the SNI information the browser provides which is mostly limited to the domain name. Not all browsers or HTTP agents provide SNI information.

    Theres no way its going to read the referrer from the HTTP stream if its encrypted.
