Description (last modified by jobp)

Adapted from


Windows 8.1

How to reproduce

Precondition : ABP integrated Maxthon Browser (international version) is available on the system.

  1. Open Maxthon Browser and load website

  1. Click on the ABP icon
  2. Click on "Adblock Plus options"
  3. Untick "Enable Adblock Plus"
  4. Reload page, and confirm that the icon is greyed out.
  5. Go to a different page, e.g.
  6. Observe the ads still being unblocked
  7. Click on the ABP icon
  8. Click on "Block ads on this site"
  9. Go to and see that the ads are also blocked there

Observed behaviour

ABP is enabled everywhere after clicking "Block ads on this site".

Expected behaviour

ABP should not be enabled everywhere, just on the domain.

After discussing this issue with Maxthon - it was communicated that this was intentional. Therefore, changing status to "worksforme"

This issue has been fixed, a different UI is shown when ABP is enabled. However, see #1922.
