Can't type into game

When AdBlock is running, I can't type into a word game at The problem is merely inconvenient even though unexpected, since the game works in every other way. I found that pausing makes the problem go away without affecting the game. Pausing is not the best answer because I forget to unpause. But 'not running' AdBlock on this domain/page prevented the game loading - this may have been a coincidence but it has occurred twice.
Apart from pausing and not running, I have made no changes to any settings.
Is something broken?

    After stopping and starting AdBlock a few more times, the behaviour has stopped. No obvious reason why.

    Hi Peter,

    Quite often, a bug in a recent filter list update can cause a website not to work properly. Then, when the bug is discovered and an update is released to fix it, the site works again for no apparent reason. It's maaaaagic. :)

    Glad all is well again! Please don't hesitate to let us know if there's any assistance we can provide in the future.
