Description

Environment

Linux OpenSUSE 13.2 32-bit, Thunderbird 52.1.1, ABP 2.9
filter lists: Easy Privacy + Easy List, Easy List Germany, Facebook Privacy List, Fanboys Social Blocking List, Malware Domains, Adblock Warming Removal List, Prebake - Filter Obtrusive Cookie Notices

How to reproduce

Reading articles from a RSS news feed, doesn't matter which one, as long as there are ads

Observed behaviour

Suddenly ads did appear in the articles. Upon checking the filter list subscriptions - they were all gone.
Even though the filter subscriptions can be re-created, they will be lost again after Thunderbird is restarted.
Reverting to ABP 2.8.2 restores the filter subscriptions.

Expected behaviour

Filter subscriptions should not be lost.
Is this already the point were Thunderbird doesn't cope any more with the changes in preparation for web extensions?
If that's the case, ABP 2.9 shouldn't be marked as compatible with Thunderbird any longer.
