Adblock causes of Internet connection problems

First, I would like to congratulate the application, because today for me is essential, especially in Android. However, I have observed that when this is enabled I have many problems connecting to my Wi-Fi that are solved by disabling Adblock completely. I use Adblock Plus last version (1.2) in several devices, a tablet with Android 4.2, another tablet with Android 4.1.2 and 3.0, a smartphone with Android 4.4.2... And the problem occurs in all of them.
The Wi-Fi is set according to Adblock indicating, and it works; the problem is that it seems to lose the connection and gives me error. It lasts a couple of seconds, but as continuous and does not offer me a comfortable experience, because I have to be constantly reloading pages or applications. The subscription I use is EasyList, and this only happens on Android, because I have Adblock also in browsers that use in my pc and they go perfectly.
It is very troublesome, especially in applications such as Google Play or Instagram, which gives me error almost every option I press.

Nor I can access the adf.ly links while you have Adblock enabled, but that bothers me less.

So I hope you investigate and settle it soon. Congratulations on the application and thank you very much for creating it!
Regards

I have a similar problem with ABP on my Sony Xperia phone. When ABP is enabled on my WIFI, I have problems connecting to YouTube (takes 4 or 5 tries), and I am completely unable to access my Gmail. Q

I have the latest build but it causes all kinds of issues....

1). gmail real slow or constant retrying
2) youtube won't play - error message and network error
3) cnn - video won't play just sits there and spins
4) won''t block ad pop-ups like Press + on my newspaper site http://thespec.com pop up keeps telling I have read enough articles and to subscribe
5) got an adblock edge message yesterday, whats this all about?


If I remove adblock all is well (except for ads of course)

Samsung Tablet 4.2.2

Settings - (manual) - (localhost) - (2020) - (cnn.com,youtube.com)

I'm also having connection timeouts. Only noticed it in google play store, so far, and updating from stable to latest dev build seems it's less frequent now. Typically, everything seems ok, but when I try to scroll down on an app page, anything below the top of the page (app pics, etc.) is blank (grey) and then the timeout message shows.
Acer Iconia B3-A20, Android 5.1

edit: also happening with gmail.
