Adblock 0.5.9.2 just not working!!!

Hi.
I installed it in Mozilla Suite. Restart and run.
It looks well but is not functional.
When I click on an ad/image and block it, nothing happens.
All options seems dead.
What's up? Does anyone has the same problem as mine?

Here's my specifications:
- Mozilla Suite 1.7.12
- Windows XP Pro
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915

Does uninstalling it, then installing again help?

I just wonder if this extension works in the newest versoin of Mozilla Suite, ie 1.7.12
Anyway, there's no auto uninstallation in Mozilla Suite. So how can I uninstall it manually?
Currently, what I can do is to reinstall it without uninstalling it. It seems not a good idea and not helpful, right?

There's a Deinstall option under Adblock's Options menu. It might also pay to type "%appdata%" under "Start Menu->Run" then go to "Mozilla\Profiles\default\xxx.slt" and remove the "XUL.mfl" file.

If your interested in a way to uninstall extensions (doesn't work properly with Adblock) then I suggest installing "Extension Manager 2.0" and "Extension Uninstaller API 2.0". This works well with the Filterset.G Updater extension.

You can also try the developer build of Adblock Plus to see if it fares better:

I tried to uninstall and reinstall your adblock plus (both stable & dev) in vain.
I don't know why. Weird!
The installation is fine, but it just won't function at all.

Can you confirm if this extension works in Mozilla 1.7.12?
