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?

  1. Enable AdBlock for YouTube
  2. Go to any music video whose music is available elsewhere
  3. Observe the generated links in the description

What should happen when you do the above steps
Links to the official music for supporting the artist are there (iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, etc.).

What actually happened?
Links to the official music for supporting the artist are gone.

Do you have any other comments? If you can, can you please attach a screenshot of the bug?
AdBlock provides a feature to easily add a filter via the "Block an ad on this page" option. Perhaps "Unblock an ad on this page" would be good, too.

--- 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?

    Hi Ben,

    If a website isn't working properly with AdBlock running, it could be caused by a broken filter in one of your filter lists. We don't maintain the lists, but we can help you isolate the problem filter so you can report it to the list maintainers. Here's how:

    1. First try updating your filter lists. Click the AdBlock button and select Options. On the FILTER LISTS tab click update now and then reload the page where you're seeing the problem. If the problem goes away, great, you're all done! You just had an outdated list. If the problem is still there, keep going.
    2. Next, try disabling all your filter lists. Uncheck all the lists on the "FILTER LISTS" page, then reload the page where you’re seeing the problem. If the problem goes away, great, we know it's one of the lists that's causing it.
    3. Now re-enable the lists one by one, reloading the page where you’re seeing the problem after each list is enabled. (Make sure to wait for AdBlock to fetch the list before reloading the page.) Which list causes the problem to happen again?
    4. Please report this to the list maintainers. You can find the contact info in our Knowledge Base.

    If unchecking all the filter lists did not fix the problem, try the same thing with your browser extensions: Disable all of them, then re-enable the extensions one by one, reloading the problem page after each. Which extension causes the problem to happen again?

    Let us know how it goes!

    I tried all this. This behavior is exhibited on all devices and browsers
    running AdBlock because, as I already said, Easy List causes it.

    Hi Ben,

    My apologies! I completely missed your answer to that question in all the debugging information that accompanied your report.

    As I mentioned, we don't maintain the lists that filter ads. Please report this to the EasyList maintainers. You can find the contact info in our Knowledge Base. You'll need to click the New Topic button on the Report incorrectly removed content page.

    Thanks, and good luck! Please let us know if you don't hear back from them within a few days.
