Review URL(s):



Ubuntu 14.04LTS
Firefox 61.0.1
ABP 3.3
English + Easylist (any custom settings or rules seem to disappear so I'm back to this)

How to reproduce

  1. Close Firefox 'improperly' (not File, Quit, but close Ubuntu down without closing apps, or alterantively, if it crashes)
  2. Restart Firefox

Observed behaviour

New instance of Firefox (which restores previously open tabs in my case) has a new tab informing me that:

Adblock Plus has been installed

It seems that an issue caused all filters to be removed and we were unable to restore a backup. Therefore we had to reset your filters and Acceptable Ads settings. Please check your filter lists and Acceptable Ads settings in the Adblock Plus options.

Expected behaviour

That settings are not lost.
