AdBlock Plus does not block Facebook application ads

Options "don’t show me <…> aps anymore" and "I don't want to see this" are disabled in Facebook app for these ads. All traffic goes to AdBlock Plus proxy, "allow acceptable ads" is turned off, and filters are up to date.

Hey asidorov!

Thanks for reaching out to us.
Have you configured the proxy manually? https://adblockplus.org/android-config
Could you let us know the device you are using and the Android version?
Unfortunately we don't have any Android developers at the moment, so I will try to replicate the issue and do my best to support you.

If that's true then boy are we all in trouble! :-(

We think we have the same problem only with different apps.

We recently noticed in-app ads coming in with gusto despite a long record of successful blocking/avoidance - even though ads are still blocked in the browser.

Our platform details are:-
Hisense Sero 7 Pro
Android Jellybean
Stock ROM/No root
Browser: Stock Android
WiFi configured manually to localhost on port 2020.

App in question: Merriam-Websters dictionary

No matter how we try, we cannot get them rid of them any more: we have tried resetting the WiFi values, restarting ABP and even clearing the cache of the apps concerned.

...Yet in they come.

Please help.
