Description (last modified by kzar)


Chrome 30 / Windows 7

Also reproduced with 1.10.

How to reproduce

  1. Install extension.
  2. Visit
  3. Select the "Subscribe" link on the right.
  4. Observe nothing happens.

Observed behaviour

Nothing happens / link seems ignored.

Expected behaviour

The ABP options page to be displayed with the "Add a custom subscription" fields filled in.


For some reason Chrome 30 thinks that is a blank string, so we need to grab the search part of the URL ourselves.
