what other addons are you using ?

Did you reload the page after disabling ABP for the site?

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by Fiskern

Of course I tried to reload page. I also tried to uninstall and reinstall without success.

Other addons:
Avast Online Security
Hola Unblocker
QuickShare Widget
Widevine Media Optimizer

QuickShare Widget seems to be malware

widevine ? did you install it ?

on the other hand, try disabling Avast Online Security and re-test (could be avast is blocking the ads)

QuickShare is the one I can't remember downloading come to think about it. Widevine is required by HBO Nordic.

From the description of your issue, it doesn't sound like Adblock Plus is blocking the ads in your case. Please disable Adblock Plus via the Add-ons Manager and check whether you see the ads then.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

No answer in a while, resolving as invalid - this issue isn't reproducible and it doesn't sound like Adblock Plus is the culprit.
