    55=== How to reproduce ===

     7There are two known ways to trigger that issue. First one involves setting `please_kill_startup_performance` preference: 
    68 
    79- in about:config it's already please_kill_startup_performance=false 
     
    1921- all the lists / custom filters are back ! 
    2022 
     23Second variant requires importing a large filter list: 
     24 
     25- Download https://easylist-downloads.adblockplus.org/easylist.txt to your computer. 
     26- Open Filter Preferences. 
     27- Click "Backup and Restore" button and choose "Restore own backup". 
     28- Select "Custom filters only" as file type and choose easylist.txt that you downloaded before. 
     29 
     30Expected results: 
     31 
     32The file should be imported into custom filters successfully. 
     33 
     34Actual results: 
     35 
     36The message "The file's data could not be processed, maybe this isn't an Adblock Plus backup file?" appears. Browser Console shows the error message "too much recursion."
