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. Open google chrome
  2. go to youtube, (any way doesn't matter)
  3. select a video if dont see error right away.

What should happen when you do the above steps
youtube should load as youtube normally does, and does when I pause adblock,
as well i can see all buttons normally and etc.

What actually happened?

The youtube webpage will not load any textures itll be all just text. when you finally refresh enough times and make it past the homepage and play a video
then you cant see any of the controls like wide screen and volume, they turn into giant buttons across your page

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 Todd,

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

    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.
