If I visit
then adblock hangs. The blocked ads keeps counting up and cpu usage gets up to 100%.
I´ve tried updating the filters and reinstalling adblock, didn´t help.

    Works perfectly on Safari Mac OS X. Which browser and OS are you using?

    Hello Malfide,

    Are you using any other extensions?

    I've tried by disabling all extensions except adblock.
    No luck so far...

    Hello Malfide,

    I just tested this out on Google Chrome. It seems like I have more or less the same problem. It keeps counting ads. This is a bug and it should be patched by a developer. I'll let this discussion like this so a support member can see it and report it to the developers.

    Kind Regards,

    I've sent this to our devs - they'll get working on it, or send it on to the right place.
