when i make a new email, i try to type the address to send to, but when adblock is on i cannot. one letter appears, then nothing. if i hold down the key then a whole row of letters appears. the problem is not my keyboard or computer.

i have wireless keyboard and mouse, vista; but i don't think that's a problem. the ads get blocked nice, but so does my keyboard?? i am only seeing this on my yahoo email page in the "send to" box. i don't use other email services so i don't know about those.

I just tried but it seems to be working for me. Are you using the new Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Mail Classic?

Which filter subscriptions are checked in Adblock Plus options? Do you also have custom filters? Which Google Chrome version is that?

Just to be absolutely certain, did you verify that the issue disappears if Adblock Plus is disabled? What if all extensions but Adblock Plus are disabled - do you still see the issue then?

Confirmed that this is Chrome issue 68705 once again. This seems promising, analyzing Yahoo Mail is easier than analyzing Gmail, maybe we will finally figure out what is going on.

The good news is: Chrome 11 is slightly less broken. The bad news: even now that I reduced the problem I cannot find a good work-around for Adblock Plus until Google fixes the issue. Which means that we have to go with the problematic work-around we currently use for Gmail. I've added it now: https://hg.adblockplus.org/adblockplusc ... c1d7d5739d (a development build with that change will be available in 15 minutes). However, changing EasyList will be required as well, it currently has one style-based rule for Yahoo Mail. Reported the EasyList issue: http://forums.lanik.us/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=8142

by the way, i read that regular adblock (not plus) may not have this problem.

I'm pretty certain it does. Anyway, Adblock Plus 1.1.1 shouldn't hit the problem any more.
