Description (last modified by sergz)

Adapted from


Windows + 7 64bit + Internet Explorer 11 + German
ABP version 1.3.745.0

How to reproduce

  • click on ABP-button in statusbar and choose "settings" -> the language list / pulldown menu is OK.
  • click in IE on the settings-button in the upper right corner and choose "manage AddOns"
  • select ABP and choose "Deactivation"
  • Close window
  • Open ABP-settings (see step 1) again

Observed behaviour

language list is truncated (as small as the "open-button" on top) and empty. See attachment.

Expected behaviour

language list within ABP-settings should stay normal, readable and should still have content

I would say we should merely show that the plugin is disabled.

The settings page in this case should probably be modified and just a message that the plugin is disabled should be displayed.
