Youtube compatibility

I've noticed that just today, Youtube's web page wouldn't display correctly. After pausing Adblock (and later re-enabling it), I came to the understanding that Google may be starting to counteract whatever Adblock does/uses. As a Google Chrome user, I've already checked incognito and through other browsers. So hopefully there's something you developers can work on in order to keep Adblock useful.

Many thanks!

    Hi Brandon,

    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.
