Description (last modified by oleksandr)

Adapted from


Windows 7 32bit Internet Explorer 11 English
ABP version 1.2.636.0

How to reproduce

  1. Open IE browser with installed Adblock
  2. Go to with ad on the top that is currently blocked by Adblock
  3. Click on ABP icon -> Disable on

-> page is reloaded and ad is now displayed as expected

  1. Click on Disable on once again to hide ad
  2. Click on ABP icon and then 'Disable for all'


Observed behaviour

  1. Selecting 'Disable for all' option does not reload page that is currently opened like it is happening when we do a disable for specific page only. 
  2. ABP icon is now grayed out like disabled
  3. Ad is not displayed on the page as expected when add-on is disabled

Expected behaviour

Page should be reloaded once the option is selected and ad should appear.

  • Cc oleksandr added
  • Ready unset

We actually regard automatic reloading as an undesired or at least questionable behaviour so far. Please see #1914 and the issues linked in there. I unset the ready state until we made a final decision on this general global topic.

pull request with resolve the problem ... when you made a final decision ... :)

I think is more logic an automatic reloading ...

  • Tester set to Unknown

We should reference here #1339, according to which it should not reload a page.

Given the resolution on #1339, I think we can close this ticket as rejected. Correct, @oleksandr?

  • Resolution set to rejected
  • Status changed from new to closed

Right, we are now consistent and don't reload the page when blocking was enabled/disabled in any way.
