This is a filter issue. The filter that Adblock Plus is suggesting matches each element that has both the classes "first-line" and "fk-uppercase" which happens to be the case for multiple elements on this page.

Note that the video demonstration doesn't select the tab but an element inside a tab. It's also worth noting that Adblock Plus highlights the elements that the suggested filters will hide.
