Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit
Firefox 57.0 64-bit
Adblock Plus 3.0.1

How to reproduce

  1. Enable Adblock Plus
  2. Run iotop, sort by 'Disk Write' column

Observed behaviour

Command 'firefox [DOM Worker]' writes several MBs every minute. After disabling Adblock Plus the writes are no longer seen. After re-enabling Adblock Plus the writes are seen again.

Expected behaviour

Adblock Plus does not cause excessive disk writes. I don't remember seeing this with versions < 3.0.


Could this be related to a setting that we can disable?
