Description (last modified by trev)


Chrome 46 (Safari and Opera are probably affected as well)
Windows 10 64 bit
Adblock Plus 1.9.3

How to reproduce

  1. Install ABP in a new browser profile
  2. Go to
  3. Disable ABP on that domain
  4. Refresh the page

Observed behaviour

The opt in message for adblock warnings shows up (triggered by the frame).

Expected behaviour

It should not show up, since the top-level document ( doesn't match anything.

I may add that the notification has no impact on the sites in question even if you click on OK. So the notification is a annoyance to the user and should be removed quickly.

@kzar: An issue without module isn't "ready" by definition ;)

There are actually three separate issues here. One is that Adblock Plus for Chrome checks frames for the anti-adblock notification rather than top-level documents only. The other is that Adblock Plus for Firefox seems to do the same (entirely different code). And finally, there is the issue that showing the anti-adblock notifications when Adblock Plus is disabled makes very little sense.

I'll morph this ticket into reflecting the first issue and create follow-ups on the other issues.
