#4949 closed defect (rejected)

Options page only available upon add-on restart in Firefox Mobile

On ABP for Firefox mobile, options are not displayed unless the user disables the extension and re-enables it again. Even after doing so, the options are selectable, but then when re-entering the add-ons section again, the options are hidden.

We currently have a user that expresses the blocking functionality does not work because of the above-described issue. I was not able to reproduce such an issue, but I did notice that each time I reloaded the settings page, I had to re-select the filter list.


Firefox Mobile 51.0.3
ABP 2.8.2
Samsung Galaxy S7
Android 6.0.1

How to reproduce

  1. Install Firefox Mobile 51.0.3
  2. Install ABP 2.8.2
  3. Navigate to Settings>Tools>Add Ons
  4. Click Disable
  5. Click Enable

Observed behaviour

The settings only appear after disabling and re-enabling the extension.

Expected behaviour

Settings should always be available.

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
