Could you please check if any filter list is selected in the settings?

I had this issue with my Android 4.4.4 device, i.e. no ads were blocked. Strangely there wasn't any filter list enabled.

Will need to investigate, however, why there's no filter list selected by default.

Currently, I am unable to select settings because of #3820. Once that is fixed and if then the issue still occurs, I will re-check the issue then.
