Adblock Plus for Chrome stops Wired magazine gallery from working

Reported by: tyrells Assignee:

Review URL(s):



OS: Windows 7 Enterprise Version 6.1 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1)
Browser: Google Chrome Version 34.0.1847.116 m
ABP: 1.7.4

How to reproduce

  1. Go to any article with a gallery. Example:
  2. Once the page loads, try click the left/right arrows or play, thumbnail or full screen button on the gallery object.

Observed behaviour

Pressing any of the above buttons has no effect.

Expected behaviour

Pressing the left/right arrow should change to the next image in the gallery.


If you disable the ABP extension in Chrome, the gallery works normally. I have tested the same page in Firefox 28.0 with ABP 2.5.1 and it works normally too, so this seems to be specific to Chrome.

Which filter lists and custom filters are you using? With Easylist and "allow some unobtrusive advertisements" the navigation elements work fine for me in Chrome.

Seems to be a Filter issue then, which you can report at the filter authors websites. If this does not hold true, you might reopen this issue.

probably you are using easyprivacy, try this filter (exception):

Thanks. That was exactly the problem. The exception worked.
