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. Run adblock
  2. open youtube
  3. any part of the domain will have the same result, disabling adblock makes the website load as normal

What should happen when you do the above steps website runs as normal

What actually happened? Page runs but mass errors occur, no ,

Do you have any other comments? If you can, can you please attach a screenshot of the bug? I assume this is an update from youtubes side that doesnt work well with adblock, probably needs to have an update of some kind?

If unchecking all filter lists fixes the problem, which one filterlist must you check to cause the problem again after another restart?

  1. YouTube is a mess unless I turn off AdBlock!

    It wasn't us, honest! An issue with the Malware Protection filter list caused YouTube to flake out today.
