Adblock Plus for Chrome as of

How to reproduce

  1. Click to block an element
  2. When the popup window opens close the window (with your window manager, not by clicking the "Cancel" button).

Observed behaviour

Element blocking is still in progress, the element is still highlighted red and the option to cancel is still given by the extension popup.

Expected behaviour

Element blocking should stop, like it did before.

This regression was introduced by f2c48546e442. Through all the rebasing, the name of the message to be sent when the popup is closed, got somehow reverted to it's former name.
