I can not reproduce that issue with Adblock Plus 1.8.3 (current release) and Chrome 37.0.2040.0 (latest Canary build) or Chrome 35.0.1916.114 (current stable).

  1. Please update Google Chrome.
  2. Make sure that you are using the latest version of Adblock Plus as available here.
  3. Try a new profile

In case everything works fine until you change some settings, please post your filter lists, custom filters and other settings you changed.
