This is a known issue (see ui#210). The issue is that in order to enable Adblock Plus on a domain, all applicable whitelist filters need to be disabled (incl. ones from downloadable filter lists like EasyList). When enabling ad blocking for the domain again, however, all the extension does is add the filter @@||example.com^$document which.

While this behavior has been around for years, we never had a way to enable disabled filters from downloadable filter lists in web extensions so allowing users to reenable such disabled filters would be one way to handle it. Ideally, we'd be reenabling all relevant filters instead of merely adding a new one to reset the extension to its prior state but that may require changes to Platform and/or Core.
