Alleen in het Engels!

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?

What should happen when you do the above steps

What actually happened?

youtube is no longer running, when ad blocker is active.
When you shut adblocker of (pause) it does show up (youtube). But when you play a video and un pause the adblocker
it jams again. Has youtube taken countermeasures against adblocker? Would really be a pitty, because the reason i bought and installed ad blocker is to listen to youtube music without the ads!.. Thanks for dealing with this in advance

Do you have any other comments? If you can, can you please attach a screenshot of the bug?


--- The questions below are optional but VERY helpful. ---

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

    Hi George,

    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.

    Thanks guys / Thana it works again somehow! (music comes through, images not, but that's not a real problem. And when I pause adblock and the re apply, also the images show)

    I am already happy thanks!

    Hi George,

    Are you still getting music only, not images, on YouTube? If so, you may have a different broken filter list. Let us know and we'll try to help!
