This post was updated 01/23/2019, and was originally created to address a similar issue that was reported in June of last year https://gitlab.com/eyeo/adblockplus/abp ... issues/103. We corrected what seemed to be the underlying issue, and had established a temporary work around. However, as of 01/17/2019 an increasing amount of Edge users began reporting issues with the first run page. The good news is we have prepared a fix for this which can be referenced below.....
Thanks for reaching out to us! We apologize for the annoyance.
We are aware that some users are having an issue with MS Edge first run page opening in a new tab upon relaunch with the message that filters have been removed.
We have prepared a hot fix for this. Feel free to test it out prior to release by installing our development build.
Step 1. Uninstall Adblock Plus for Edge
Step 2. Install development build here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/adblo ... verviewtab
We appreciate your help! To further isolate the issue try running this code (https://gist.github.com/kzar/543caa2561 ... d532a73d17
) in the extension’s background console before and after switching to the development build. It would help us confirm our understanding of this problem.
