AdBlock not working on first opened page

Browser: Chrome
OS: Win 7 Ultimate x64

When an internet page is opened with a link on the desktop or through the app starter when chrome is NOT active, the first time the page loads AdBlock is not working at all. Refreshing the page solves the problem. The setting "Keep Chrome running in the background" is irrelevant.

    Same here:

    Safari Version 6.1 (8537.71) on OSX 10.8.5

    AdBlock 2.6.4

    In Safari 6.1 and 7, Safari sometimes pre-loads pages before the user sees them. The way in which this is done does not give AdBlock the opportunity to block ads on those pages. Apple did not intend to cause problems for AdBlock and is working with us to fix the issue. Once the Safari team has fixed their part of the issue, we will be able to update our code to work with preloaded pages.
