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. connect to youtube
  2. website looks like something wrong : all listed and no video
  3. disabling adblock on youtube make the website right again

What should happen when you do the above steps
youtube should work when adblock is on

What actually happened?
youtube doesn't work when adblock is on and does when it's off

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

Is it going to change? or youtube will always be considered as an ad?

--- 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 Bertocchi,

    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.
