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. Click on the adblock icon next to the internet address bar
  2. Click on General
  3. In the general tab there isn't an option to whitelist specific youtube channels

What should happen when you do the above steps

There should be an option to whitelist specific youtube channels as described here: What actually happened?
The option just isn't there. There should be a thick box so I can whitelist and support my favorite youtube channels.

Do you have any other comments? If you can, can you please attach a screenshot of the bug?
It happened on the spanish version browser is safari 9.0.2 computer is a mac air with el capitan

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 Abraham,

    Our apologies! That Knowledge Base article applies to Chrome and Opera, not Safari. Safari doesn't provide a way for us to offer that feature.

    I'll make a note to update that article. Thanks for pointing out our error, and we're sorry for the inconvenience!
