It block my rest client (Advanced rest client, Postman) extension and I cannot disable adblock plus or add whitelist for rest client
It annoy me that I have to disable it when I use rest client to test my localhost api server and have to switch on when I want to surfing the internet


Adblock plus 1.8.9 OSX 10.10.1 Google chrome 39.0.2171.95 (64-bit) with default filter EasyList

How to reproduce

  1. install Advanced Rest Client chrome extension
  2. open rest client on google chrome
  3. fill in URL with http://localhost:8082/api/ad/auth
  4. Use method POST
  5. fill in Payload as Raw data with


"username": "username",
"password": "password"


  1. set content type to application/json
  2. click send button

Observed behaviour

when inspect network with inspector request was blocked 'net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_CLIENT'
and icon adblock plus show number incremental as how many click on send button

It still not working when add whitelist as localhost or

when disable extension in chrome extension rest client works properly

Expected behaviour

It should not block when whitelist added or it can be disabled for that specific extension

Try adding this filter:

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

This is the intended behavior. Since the URL entered here is http://localhost:8082/api/ad/auth it matches the filter /api/ad/* in EasyList, and gets blocked. You can whitelist that URL however, as pointed out above.
