ABP draining battery

Postby ross01 » Fri Oct 21, 2016 11:56 am

Adblock Plus v 1.3 build 359
Android 6.0.1
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F)

Over the last week, my phone has been uncharacteristically tearing through its battery. The app GSam Battery Monitor informs me that the culprit is ABP, which is using up to 60% of the battery's power. I have uninstalled and re-installed ABP but this has not rectified the problem. Can an ABP technician help?

Thank you.

ABP for Android has not been worked on in a long time and has been deprecated, and it never worked well even in those versions of Android where it works; consider using the Adblock Browser for Android, or the ABP extension for Firefox for Android.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.
