Report bugs

If you think Adblock Plus isn't behaving the way it should, tell us. You may encounter a situation that is new to us, therefore we rely on your bug report to fix the issue. Please be sure to include all of the necessary information needed to reproduce the issue, such as: the browser and browser version, the version of Adblock Plus and the conditions in which the issue occurs. Additionally, please be on the lookout for any follow-up questions we may have.

Test development builds

Before a new version of Adblock Plus is released, several development builds are produced. The purpose of these builds is to catch bugs and, sometimes, imperfect features before they are released to the public. To receive development build release notifications, subscribe to the RSS feed.

Bring in suggestions

There is always something that can be improved, so please share your ideas with us. We encourage you to not only tell us what needs to be changed, but explain to us how it should be changed.

Add or improve filters

Adblock Plus is only as good as its filters. Share your filters, suggest new ones or help communities of volunteer contributors to draft and update filter lists. These filter lists need to be constantly maintained to block menaces like new tracking systems, malware threats and intrusive ads.

Visit the forum to share or suggest filters. Active contributors may be promoted to the group of filter list maintainers.

If you come across a website on which an ad isn't blocked, or a filter list causes an issue, please report it.

Eyeo GmbH, the company behind Adblock Plus, has no right to, or control over, any filter list content other than Acceptable Ads.

Evaluate acceptable ads

Eyeo is the originator behind the Acceptable Ads initiative, which is aimed at supporting websites that choose to use nonintrusive ads. Criteria defining nonintrusive, and therefore acceptable ads, has been established based on strict guidelines.

We encourage users to join the ongoing discussion to determine which ads qualify as acceptable ads. Visit the forum to share your thoughts.
