In my case the twitter box / frame is not working and empty with every browser I use (ABP switched off).
So I can not try to reproduce this, because the site itself seems to have some problems.

I can reproduce this (or at least something very similar).

If a user Right Click > Blocks the Twitter feed profile images repeatedly and quickly in succession, the Add filter dialog appears to "block" somehow. It can either block hidden and not appear at all, or block displayed but not respond at all to the add or cancel buttons being clicked.

Also, I could not reproduce this on Windows 8.1 but could on Windows Vista.

Chrome 41.0.2272.101 / Windows Vista x64

When I right click that image and choose "Block element", the dialog shows up, but moving the mouse pointer around will keep highlighting other elements. Clicking again, will bring up another dialog. The buttons on the first dialog won't respond any longer. This a regression introduced with #2298 ( This might be related to the issue others experienced here.

It turned out that Ross and myself were in fact talking about the same issue. Since #2298 the element selection were activated when using "Block element" fro mthe context menu, however it was only disabled in the top level frame where the dialog is shown. This could cause multiple dialogs showing up. But only the most recent dialog did actually respond.
