Accidental filter wrecked everything

Postby Anormalcat » Mon Jul 14, 2014 7:36 pm

I accidentially bllocked an element, But the problem is i also set up a filter to block the letter "E"

So if i run abp with any elements that contain the letter E, Well you get what i'm driving at. I can't even look at the options page to get rid of the filter

Personally i'm thinking that ABP shouldn't operate on it's own settings page...
Or at least have a "Show ads on this site" button

go into your chrome profile

In the Windows Explorer window that appears enter the following in the address bar.
Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\
Windows Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\

go into default folder

close chrome
you can: delete file system folder

or
go to into file system and search in all folders a file of 1.2 - 1.4 MB size (or more)
delete it

open chrome and see the first page where you can again select the features you want to install, you will have access to the options
