The dependency on #74 arises because the file "AdblockPlusEngine.exe" needs to be replaced on installation. At present the engine does not close when the browser and plugin terminate, not in all cases (cases which include the stated test conditions).

  • Priority changed from P2 to P3

Reducing priority - it's inconvenient, but not critical enough for a P2.
