the site is using adblockkey (useful to be whitelisted)

<html data-adblockkey="MFwwDQYJKoZIhvcNAQEBBQADSwAwSAJBANHZLSNGAhe0lWbSycFlY7t3c4tFHP+Epw8naGgm3CR8CftAihnB7Jkt+vFmvIf3BV/p3RpOrZ/XbZsX9uh0m9UCAwEAAQ==_iihW5gdttYzZo1n8pTfSz45WWKueLXLXypkm8Gw038xfQqgi95Oy7SnjCzEQ3ZhBRslMs1NKaGh3Pfv5YT3OGw==">

I can't reproduce the issue on windows. Could be a firefox-MAC OS issue ?!

I cannot reproduce this either with the following configuration (no matter whether "show non-intrusive ads" is checked or not):

Mac OSX 10.9.5
Firefox 37.0.2
Adblock Plus 2.6.9
filter lists as specified

Since the original report on the forum also mentions that it would only occur with the signature bhGl6+rDW5UKYa5Yd2KsUbliLC9G6hGx7nTJ27sGEN8CXp/xFA1NpNusv+/j71V6dq/xXkfkiOb89OECr59H9w== I'll also investigate that claim.

Apart from that I could also imagine that this was caused by the presence of another extension so do you have any other ones installed?

No, I cannot reproduce on OS X either.

@greiner: I would be very surprised if the crashed were caused by a specific signature.

@TrashMind and @mapx: When your Firefox crashed, did you send a crash report? If so, please give us your crash report link.

Also, did you verify that Firefox doesn't crash if the Adblock Plus extension is disabled?

No, I can't reproduce the issue (in windows) and I have no access to a mac os system. So, only TrashMind could provide a crash report link.

Sorry, looks like I misread your reply in the forum - thought you were able to reproduce.

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

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
