Description (last modified by oleksandr)

Adapted from


Windows + Vista 64bit + Chrome + English
ABP version 1.3.745.0

How to reproduce

  1. Install latest ABP extension on IE.
  1. Open the ABP settings page and add  *adage* in whitelisting.

see screenshot  for settings.

  1. Load website
  1. Check the ABP icon as disabled which is fine.
  1.  Click on ABP icon and unselect  "Disable on" to enable ABP on this site.
  1. Observe ABP is still disabled.
  1.  Check the same scenario on Chrome where ABP is enabled as expected after Step 5.

Observed behaviour

Step 6 :  Page automatically refreshes on unselecting "Disable on"  but still ABP  remains disabled.

On Chrome,  on manually enabling the ABP on a site, the conflicting rule  from whitelisting gets removed.

Expected behaviour

User action  shall override settings rule as happen in chrome.

Reproduced. Having a site in the whitelist than toggling the the "Disabled on X" setting via ABP menu does show that ABP is following the shitelist over the user's "Disable on X" setting.
