I can reproduce it with a fresh Chrome (62.0.3202.94 (Official Build) (64-bit)) browser profile on Windows 10, installed ABP from https://adblockplus.org/. When I go to google.com, I'm redirected to google.de but I can click on "use Google.com" in the bottom right corner. The message appears there for me. Also when I just go to https://happyasis.com/.

Note that this issue doesn't occur in the latest development build but can be reproduced using the latest stable build and going to github.com, for instance.
