Please answer the following questions so that we can process your bug report, otherwise, we may have to ignore it.
Also, please put your name, or a screen name, and your email above so that we can contact you if needed.
If you don't want your report to be made public, check that box, too.

Can you provide detailed steps on how to reproduce the problem?

Hi, Adblock keeps uninstalling itself every time I restart Chrome and Firefox. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and scanning with 360 total protection, Mailwarebytes, Glary utilities and spyhunter and they all come up clean. 1.

What should happen when you do the above steps

What actually happened?

Do you have any other comments? If you can, can you please attach a screenshot of the bug?

--- The questions below are optional but VERY helpful. ---

If unchecking all filter lists fixes the problem, which one filterlist must you check to cause the problem again after another restart?

Technical Chrome users: Go to chrome://extensions ->Developer Mode -> Inspect views: background page -> Console. Paste the contents here:

    Hi David,

    Hm, that's odd. I'll ask our developers if they have any suggestions. Please allow a few extra days for a response, because of the holidays.

    Hi David,

    We've released a couple of updates to AdBlock since we last corresponded. Is the issue still happening?
