#3353 new defect

Filterlists load only when preferences are opened

Reported by: Asango Assignee:

Review URL(s):



Win 7 Home Premium SP1
Firefox 40.0.2
ABP 2.6.13
Works the same for all filterlist combinations

How to reproduce

-Open Firefox
-Open any page, ABP does not block ads until preferences are opened and pages are reloaded

Observed behaviour

Opening filter preferences makes the filterlists load and fixes the bug (until I restart Firefox), while the filterlists are loading it behaves as if there were no filters installed (tells me that no lists are installed and that nothing will be blocked, list is empty).

Expected behaviour

ABP should load the filterlists when Firefox starts, there should be no necessarity to open the preferences to make ABP work.

Please can you confirm if this is reproducable with the latest version of Adblock Plus 3.0.2 for Firefox? (I ask since the extension has changed dramatically with the switch to Firefox WebExtensions.)
