    Hi Connor,

    Thanks for your report! An issue with the Malware Protection filter list caused YouTube to flake out today.

    The folks who maintain the list quickly corrected the problem and released an update. To get it, just refresh your filter lists:

    1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options.
    2. On the FILTER LISTS tab, click update now.

    If this doesn't help, please let us know! Just reply to this email to reopen the discussion.
