Adblock Plus breaks the websites I visit

In rare instances, Adblock Plus may prevent some websites from functioning correctly. This is typically not a bug but rather a problem with the filters (or filter subscription).

Here's what you can do about it, depending on your browser.

Chrome

 

Temporarily turn off Adblock Plus on a website

A filter list may be directing Adblock Plus to block something that should be allowed. To verify that the issue lies within the filter list, temporarily turn off Adblock Plus on the website that you are experiencing the issue. If the issue is fixed after temporarily disabling Adblock Plus, you can be certain that the problem is within the filters.

  1. From the Chrome toolbar, click the Adblock Plus icon and select the toggle button. Adblock Plus is now turned off on the website you are on.

Update the filter list(s)

  1. From the Chrome toolbar, click the Adblock Plus icon and then click the gear icon in the upper-right corner. The Adblock Plus Settings tab opens.
  2. Select the Advanced tab and scroll to the Filter Lists section.
  3. Click Update all filter lists.
    The update is successful if Just now appears next to the list.
  4. Close the tab.
