There are several sites, personally very few that adblock does not function properly. Although there was great improvement from the authors of the extension at the latest versions, I must admit.
My example is http://www.filehippo.com that sometimes appear ads sometimes not. Anyway I would like to thank the authors of this extension and hope to continue their great work.

I cannot see ads there - but that's probably simply because I am not in the US. It's a very lightweight website, it probably manages to load faster than Adblock Plus gets its settings from the background process. Yes, that multi-process architecture sucks, Google should really fix http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issue ... l?id=47972

Many articles show up with the feature image distorted and then quite a bit of the article text wraps underneath the distorted image.

@jbadry: If I understand you correctly (image displayed at the top of the article looks wrong) then this is unlikely related to Adblock Plus - Adblock Plus either blocks an image or it doesn't, it won't change the way an image is displayed.

I'm not sure what is going on, but the image perspective definitely changes if I turn adblock plus on, and the text becomes garbled and wraps underneath the image. With Adblock Plus off, the webpage renders normally with no distortion of image or text.

Ouch, most of newspaper sites in the canada.com network share the same ridiculous page layout :-(
