Windows 10 x64, Firefox Nightly 45.0a1 x64 (2015-11-15), Adblock Plus build with Easylist and Adblock Warning Removal List (both updated).

How to reproduce

  1. open an e10s Firefox window and open

Observed behaviour

  1. the Anti-Adblock alert popup "Please disable adblocker / whitelist this site, thx" is not blocked.
  2. there aren't any related errors entries in Browser Console while this happens
  3. And what I've noticed is that, whenever I update ABP beta with a newer build (or I install ABP on a clean FF profile), then the anti-block is blocked during the current Firefox session -as expected- no matter how many times you press F5 (refresh page), i.e. , but after next Firefox restart, it appears again.
  4. If you either rightclick on the tab and press "Open in a new non-e10s window", of if you disable e10s altogether (Options|General|untick "enable multi-process Nightly")-and restart FF-, then the alert popup is blocked -as expected-.

  • 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.
