Adblock Plus broken

Discovered Adblock Plus was not working on Chrome and had to uninstall and re-install it again to get it to work. Don't know if due to a Chrome update or Adblock update or if just me but thought I'd post as a warning to check it.

Boy, pages sure do eat data when it isn't working. Can see where customers who don't have an ad blocker installed eat a lot of data just browsing.

Hi BirdDog,

I have noticed that my ad blocker misses a good amount of pop ups sometimes. I might have to try this and see if it changes anything. Thanks for the heads up.

Mine stopped working completely and the drop down menu was missing text and did not respond when clicked.

Interesting.  I wonder if it's just some glitch you experienced.  I checked both my desktop and laptop and AdBlock Plus is working fine on them with Chrome.

I do NOT use Chrome, or anything Google. They are the "Tracking Champion"! I found AdBlock on OSX 10.11 works fine. BUT blocking sites requires you to double click on the site to add it to "Blocked" list. I mostly use FireFox, but Safari is pretty good also. I have the 5/50gb plan, sometimes have run low last week of month. Never ran out  yet. Speed varies so much. "Activity Montor" shows varying speeds, but 6mb takes only a few seconds. Currently showing less than 100 bytes/sec.! Larger sending speed goes way up.

No issues with mine even after the update.
