Description (last modified by kzar)


ABP 1.12
Safari 9 / OS X 10.11

How to reproduce

  1. Install ABP 1.12 and enable Safari Content Blocking.
  2. Select [ABP Icon] > [Options]. Options page appears in a new tab.
  3. Navigate to a website in the options page tab (I used
  4. Select [ABP Icon] > [Options].

Observed behaviour

Nothing happens when the [Options] button is pushed. You have to close the tab opened in step 2 for the button to work.

Expected behaviour

The [Options] button should continue to work.


This behaviour is present in 1.12 and more recent code, but only when the Safari Content Blocking feature is enabled.

Can reproduce as described with 1.12 and the latest code scheduled for the 1.12.1 release. Like you say it seems to only happen when using the experimental content blocking feature.

As this bug exists in the existing version and is relatively minor I think we should go ahead with the 1.12.1 release tomorrow anyway. Ultimately though that's up to Sebastian.

Either way I'm investigating to understand what's causing this bug now.
