#409 closed defect (worksforme)

IE11 crashes on certain Guardian pages

Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.17031, update 11.0.7
Windows 8.1 Update
AdblockPlus 1.1 for Internet Explorer
EasyList filters

How to reproduce

Go to

There are a number of other pages on the Guardian site that trigger the same error.

Observed behaviour

The instance of Internet Explorer in the tab crashes and restarts once, then crashes again and brings up an error page allowing a retry of the connection (which crashes again).

Expected behaviour

The page should load.

Attempted fixes

I've tried whitelisting but that doesn't make any difference.

If I disable the add-on (in Manage Add-ons) then the page loads fine.

Although I am not really able to get your exact IE version in my test environment but rather one that is a tad ahead (.17105), and thereby cannot exclude that this might happen somehow, I cannot reproduce it so far.

Please try to reinstall ABP and check, whether this still occurs.

Do you use any other extensions/apps in Internet Explorer?
