Found it!!! You have to put the 2020 in FIRST, then localhost and while cursor is still in box w localhost, you can save. Someone on page 1 of this thread posted about putting 2020 in FIRST. Thank you!!!

I have a problem with ABP on my Android os 4.4.2 not retaining its settings. But my main problem is the field labeled "bypass proxy for" . I found a number on my router's control panel *.local and then a series of numbers ***.***/** . They sure don't work. can anyone give me some info? Yes, I'm entering my ip password, trans key is 1, security key is auto, ip4 is DHCP.

save will then be available.

Recently got an LG VS980 and was having similar problems setting the proxy (for ADBLOCK PLUS) to localhost:2020 until I found that it works when you FORGET the whole network you're using, then connect to it again from the beginning with ADVANCED SETTING checked. You may have to give a password (if required). The SAVE light then stays enabled while you add also the "MANUAL" (under "PROXY SETTINGS", "localhost" and "2020" settings. This has worked (several times) for me now. What other hoops will they think of next?

LG Pad 8.3
Android 4.4.2

1. Had to (re-)enter the WiFi password to enable SAVE.

2. Turned of "Reduce data usage" (i.e. Google content caching) in Chrome - small price to pay (<30% bandwith) for getting rid of all the ads that quite often make a website unusable on tablet!

Aha! Had to turn off "reduce data usage" in Chrome settings to get it to work.

LG won't let it save, or ATT shell won't.
Had no issues on GS3 and USCC.

Did not read down far enough.
On LG, have to forget network and readd it for save to come up. Can't edit an existing connection and get save button.

You actually have to enter in wifi password. It says unchanged but stayed gray until that bit of info was entered.
What worked for me

The solution is simple forget network then reconnect using advanced option checked, mine would not connect to the web at all with any app, then I found this thread and when I went back the save button wouldnt work, after forget network and reconnect all works fine, without changing browser settings either

Hi, I am new to this forum site. I just recently installed the Adblock plus app. I am having trouble setting up the proxy settings. I have the galaxy note 2 (android 4.4.2) that is called the Kobo Vox. I have tried going into the network settings but I can't find the proxy settings. What am I doing wrong?
