Ad-Block Plus rendered many pages useless after update 10/28

Postby gschra11 » Sun Oct 28, 2012 8:44 pm

Howdy folks,

Anybody else experience major Chrome problems after the latest release of Ad-Block plus? I have several webpages that I am viewing where the links no longer work, including Fantasy Football at fantasy.nfl.com and www.goodhousekeeping.com. I'm sure I will encounter others.

I have had to disable the extention so that I can continue browsing the web normally. Now Obama and Romney are trying to get me to vote for them. Has anybody else run into this problem?

Yep. I've only just worked out what is causing it. http://www.pcworld.com/ for example is virtually unusable. Right click and open link in a new tab seems to work OK, but there is no response to a left click. It works perfectly with ABP disabled

I should have added versions
ABP 1.3 with Chrome 22.0.1229.94

I'm having the same problem. Links on pcworld do not respond. Turning off ABP fixes the problem. Or I can right click and open in a new tab/window.

Same happens on discover.com with EasyList enabled.

Ditto. Fantasy Football won't respond to ANY clicks unless I turn off ad-blocking.

I have:-
Changed from easy list to fanboy list.
Deleted and reinstalled ABP 1.3
Installed ABP 1.3 on a new,clean, install of chrome.
Switched lists from easy to fanboy on that as well.

In every case, no in page links on the PC World site I posted yesterday respond to left clicks.

Disabling or removing ABP makes the page work normally.

As it stands ABP 1.3 is unusable.

Switching from "Fanboy's Adblock List" to "EasyList" has resolved my issue with nfl.com
But I don't know what's in that list that could have caused this issue?

Bump. Apparently this is affecting a lot of sites.

I got rid of the problem where the links weren't responding on pcworld.com by uninstalling chrome and reintalling it.

Are you srs? Enable Fanboy's List. Visit NFL.com and try left click on any of the hyperlinks on the home page. They do nothing.

Went through nfl.com in both Chrome and firefox, various links from the homepage and videos played fine, without issue.

I use Fanboy Ultimate on the latest dev version of ABP in the latest stable version of Chrome for Windows 7 64-bit and have no problems.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.
