Firefox latest on Fedora 24 x86_64: firefox-53.0.2-5.fc24.x86_64
Adblock plus 2.9.
Suddenly I see an advert on youtube.
I try to report an issue.
Then Adblock mentions there are no filter rules.
So I add a few, make a backup (~/filters).
I shut down FF after a while.
I start it up again.
I check the filters: gone.
I try to restore the backup.
Due to a non added extension to ~/filters the file is not recognised.
Renaming it to filters.txt does allow recognition as a custom filter but the file is not accepted.
So I guess I need help to find the root causes of these issues.
Why does FF forhget the filters?
Why can't I restore the filters?
Is this related to FF changing?
