Button & blocking functionality disappear daily

Postby marius7x » Tue Jun 03, 2014 10:31 pm

For almost a week I've had the following problem: every day when I open Firefox, there's no ABP button in the tool, the ads are not blocked. Going to addons page, it's enabled.
To make it work I have to press Disable, then Enable, and the button appears without restart.
Any idea? Any logs I can access to discover what's the problem?

AdblockPlus 2.6, subscriptions=EasyList, RoList
Mozila Firefox 29.0.1

For ABP, now when I started my PC and its button is missing and no blocking occurs, I also found the following info in the heathreport:

I don't see any known problematic extensions in that list.

Try the following:
  1. Click the ≡ Menu Button and choose Add-ons, or press Ctrl+Shift+A (Mac: Command+Shift+A).
  2. Click Extensions on the left.
  3. Right-click the Adblock Plus entry and choose Find Update, then update to version 2.6.3.
  4. If the problem persists, check if you have the same problem in a brand new profile where you only install Adblock Plus.

  5. If the problem goes away in a new profile, one of your other add-ons may be to blame. DoNotTrackMe: Online Privacy Protection would be the prime suspect, since it's another blocking add-on.

There's a incompatibility with DownThemAll 3.0 Beta 5. Is the DownThemAll-Manager-Button in the addon-bar or somewhere else on your firefox surface, then the AdBlock-button disappears with each newstart!

This incompatibility with DownThemAll 3.0 Beta 5 appears first with Adblock Plus 2.6.3 - with older Adblock Plus versions all was ok.
And since in marius7x's addons-listing is no DownThemAll I think there are incompatibilites with some more addons and the cause is due to Adblock Plus. :shock:
I tested this issue with a brand new profile only with DownThemAll and then I started with adding Adblock Plus 2.4 and go further with adding newer Adblock Plus versions. When it comes to version 2.6.3, the bug appears and the Adblock Button disappears with each newstart.
Therefore in my daily firefox profile I deinstalled version 2.6.3 and went back to 2.6.1 and stopped updating - no more trouble now!
Please fix this bug, so that I can update Adblock Plus again.
