How to reproduce

  2. When "Adblock Plus has been installed" page opens click Twitter or Google button
  3. When "Think Adblock Plus is worth sharing?" window opens observe it and click Twitter icon

Observed behaviour

When click Twitter button on "Adblock Plus has been installed" page, "Think Adblock Plus is worth sharing?" window opens, but clicking Twitter icon here does nothing. Adblock sharing on Twitter and Google doesn't work.

Hi Alexey, I am able to replicate this issue however Please update the replication steps,
you should apply following settings :-

  • Malware Blocking
  • Remove Social Media Buttons
  • Disable Tracking

Thanks for Video POC.

  • Description modified (diff)

Previously, this issue has been taken care of in and due to "Remove social media buttons" preventing the correct display of our social media buttons.

Currently, we are checking whether the respective scripts are blocked to determine whether the fallback should be applied instead of opening the popup. However, the resources for Twitter and Google+ don't appear to be blocked anymore which is why this issue has now resurfaced.

Works for me with ABP V
While I could reproduce the issue with ABP stable (V 1.8.3).
