  • Platform changed from Opera to Unknown
  • Summary changed from ABP breaks sites. For example non-stop loading. to loads forever

Reproduced, that seems to load (the spinner in the tab keeps showing) forever. However, the website seems to be functional, and according to the Networks panel all requests are finished. The behavior is the same on Chrome and Firefox. The issue doesn't occur if you disable Adblock Plus on that website, or if you disable EasyList. I consider this a filter list issue.

Hey Lain,

Could you take a look at this?


comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by Lain_13


I can't reproduce this problem but most likely due to recent changes which I did there.
So, just update installed filter lists and it should work normally.

BTW, actually it loads rather quickly but adfox scripts are installed there in a way that page does not end up in a closed for write state and remain in the open state. In such a case spinner is displayed like it has to load something yet but never loads anything since adfox scripts were blocked and there are nothing else to load. It's a rather common issue with adfox and some other ads networks. :(

I can still reproduce it with latest EasyList.

The fix was implemented in the RU AdList. So, you need either combined RuAdList+EasyList or separate version of RU AdList. Both available here:
Also, combined version is available in Adblock's options as one of the default filters lists to subscribe.

So this issue is caused by EasyList, but RuAdlist has a fix for it. I see.

@Arthur: Are you aware of that? Do you think it would make sense to have the fix in EasyList instead?

Just in case here is my fix for this issue:

Usually false postives are fixed in the respective language filter list if it's a recommended/default one. So I think it's fine how it is.

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

Ok, fair enough.
