Please note that I couldn't reproduce this issue. Following the steps you mentioned as well as what you did in the attachment, I still get EasyList and Adblock Warning Removal List when accessing Filter preferences after installing.

Could you please try waiting to open Filter preferences after installing for a little bit? Let us know if that makes a difference.

After deleting "adblock plus" user files folder, without closing the browser if ABP is re-installed, this issue occurs. May be this is invalid procedure.

Your video actually show you closing Firefox. Can you still reproduce this issue with closing Firefox in between?

This seems to be an issue occurring only in old builds like or, but not in the latest one ( Therefore I will set it as "worksforme".
