Adblock Plus on Chrome, EasyList

How to reproduce

  1. Upload a file to
  2. It does not convert

I am the developer of Adblock Plus appears to be blocking the Ajax requests we use from our front page to convert gifs and present feedback on the progress to the user. Users with Adblock are unable to upload to our site without disabling the extension.

Please let me know how I can help resolve. I can provide the details on how our ad content is served. Surely we can find a way to accomplish ad blocking without crippling the site.

Did you already tested in chrome, firefox ? Is it the same behaviour ?
Did you test using only easylist ? other filter lists ?
During the tests were you using other addons / extensions ? What about disabling all other and keep only ABP ?

however, even disabling ABP I can see an error in the console (chrome, but also in firefox):

Error: $apply already in progress
    at Error (native)
    at g (
    at Object.e.$apply (
    at Object.j [as uploadComplete] (
    at Object.a.doFetchUrl (
    at Object.e.$eval (
    at Object.e.$apply (
    at HTMLButtonElement.<anonymous> (

I tried it in Chrome browser myself, with no other extensions to confirm the issue. I don't know anything else about ad block or filter lists, but we get many reports that things aren't working and the first thing we get them to do is disable ad block which usually resolves the issue.

The error message in the console is normal behaviour (angular js)

click ABP icon (in chrome), options, "filter lists" tab.
what filter lists are enabled ?
what's your chrome version ?

Whatever the defaults are. I just reinstalled the extension to look, it is called "EasyList"

I did a test using the gif:

now it's saying: This gif is not animated!

It's ok ?

what version is your chrome ?

I got the same result with ABP enabled / ABP disabled / the site whitelisted

All the tests ==> using only easylist

repetead the test with ABP enabled and using: easylist, easyprivacy, annoyances list ==> same result

Same here, I'm unsure what the expected behavior is here. If I upload I get "This gif is not animated!". If I upload it works correctly. If I try to fetch the same file from URL I get the error message mentioned in comment:2. So please answer the questions mapx asked in comment:7 above.

Also works for me with Firefox and Chrome.

Did you (joey) actually reproduced the issue? Or did you just heard about it from your users?
