Youtube problem with Adblock

With ad block enabled YouTube wasn't loading properly , but was looking like text page with everything in odd places. After disabling ad blocking on YouTube everything was working fine. I checked ad block filters and found out that problem is with malware filter. After disabling this filter everything came back to normal. I hope that it will be helpful for some of guys having problem with brilliant ad blocker :)

    Hi Seb,

    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.

    ...which you've probably already done by now. :)
