"subscriptionUpdateDataSource is undefined" error in Issue Reporter

Firefox 44 and higher, Adblock Plus 2.7.

How to reproduce

  1. Make sure your filter subscriptions aren't up-to-date (restore backup if necessary).
  2. Go to
  3. Click ABP icon and choose "Report issue on this page."
  4. Choose "Adblock Plus is blocking too much" and click Continue.

Observed behaviour

The message "Adblock Plus needs to update your filter subscriptions" appears but it never goes away unless you click Continue yourself. The message "ReferenceError: subscriptionUpdateDataSource is not defined" appears in the Error Console. Filter subscriptions stay outdated.

Expected behaviour

Filter subscriptions are updated and the wizard continues automatically, no errors thrown.


This is yet again fallout from bug 1202902.
