Waiting for extension AdBlock...

Recently, on Chrome, I've been having an issue with loading pages getting stuck on "waiting for extension adblock ..." shown in the bottom corner. The pages don't seem to timeout, just sit there until you close tab. A temporary fix is disabling the extension and re-enabling it. But the issue occurs again soon after.

Running AdBlock 2.46, mainly default settings.

    Hi vtroks,

    Can you please uninstall and reinstall AdBlock and let us know if that helps?
