Filter list download failure

Hello,

I am running Adblock Plus for Chrome on a windows 10 machine. I have removed and reinstalled the adblock plus extension, but I'm still seeing ads because my filter lists state "Failed, download failure" for all my lists.

If I click the link for each of the lists, all the web pages open except for https://easylist-downloads.adblockplus. ... ilters.txt, which gives me an error "This webpage is not available ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED".


Please help!


Thank you.....

remove the lists (especially easylist) and try subscribing them from (see easylist mirror at the top)

or try adding the lists you want from:
https://filterlists.com/

I removed and re-added the Easylist and it still fails to download.

I went ahead and did this - it worked!

Same problem here. Although my lack in IT skills, I've tried all you said but it still doesn't work. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong.

Hi,

I'm using Adblock Plus with Chrome on Windows 7, just as I've been doing for years. Unfortunately, I am now receiving the following message when I try to update my filter lists: "Failed, download failure."

The problem first started an hour ago, and I have tried to update the lists quite a few times since then, only to see the same message displayed next to every list. Please help me out. Step by step instructions would be very much appreciated.

It's seem that the server where are downloaded filter lists is down. Try later or subscribe from https://www.fanboy.co.nz/
