We are still working on a fix for Safari.

There occur times when YouTube ads (both video ads and pop-over ads) aren't blocked.

We are working on a fix.

Update 12th December 2013: We have possibly found the cause of the bug.

Update 2nd January 2014: Sent an e-mail to Apple.

Update 9th January 2014: We have shipped a possible fix, but the issue doesn't seems to be fixed.

Chrome Update 27th January 2014: This new bug now seems to affect various flash apps if you have disabled the built-in Chrome flash. We have therefore moved this bug to Issues in Chrome 32

Update 24th February 2014: We may have found a fix - we're currently testing it out and seeing if it works, as YouTube ads do not show up all the time.

Update 25th March 2014: We may have found a new fix - test results are good! We hope to ship the patch soon.

Update 21th April 2014: The fix has been released. If you still have this issue, make a new discussion.

Update 8th May 2014: YouTube has changed the way of loading videos, thus ads are shown again. We are working on the fix, which should be released in next AdBlock release.

Update May 2014: AdBlock 2.6.33 has been released, which contains the fix for this.
