The Adblock Plus version number: 1.12.2
The browser and browser version number: Chrome 52.0.2743.116
The computer operating system: OSX Yosemite 10.10.5
All relevant configuration details: no unusual circumstances, just a weird thing happening when coming to an article on any whitelisted site from Facebook.
The exact description of the steps that are needed to reproduce the issue
1. Whitelist a domain, eg theatlantic.com.
2. Click on a link from Facebook (with a ?utm_source= at the end)https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t3 ... 8851_o.jpg
The exact description of what happens and what you think is wrong
1. When you get to the page you clicked on, it shows a really odd thing: the ABP icon, greyed out (it recognizes it is disabled), but still disabling ads (it shows the count of ads disabled)
2. On refresh, it works as expected - lets ads show and recognizes the site has been whitelisted.
We (I'm a Product Manager at The Atlantic) have a message we show instead of an ad to users with ad block on. Many have been writing us saying they are getting the message even though they have already whitelisted The Atlantic - that explains why.
