    1. What filter lists are enabled at AdBlock Button > Options > Filter Lists?
    2. Does updating your filters using the update now button at the Filter Lists page in 1. fix this?
    3. What is in the big textbox at AdBlock Button > Options > Customise?
    4. What browser are you using?
    5. Uncheck all filter lists and restart your browser. Does the problem disappear?
      • If unchecking all filter lists fixes the problem, which one filter list must you check to cause the problem again after another restart?
    6. What version of AdBlock is installed? (Found in top-right of AdBlock Button > Options)

    Hello Herb Patterson,

    You can't block Game Requests on Facebook via AdBlock. But I think you can via Facebook. Please contact Facebook regarding this.

    Kind Regards,
    Jérémy Keusters
