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. Enable AdBlock on YouTube in Chrome browser.

What should happen when you do the above steps All of YouTube only appears in text.

What actually happened?
I had AdBlock on while I was watching videos on YouTube and closed the page to go to watch NetFlix, and the next time I opened YouTube the site was only text.

Do you have any other comments? If you can, can you please attach a screenshot of the bug?
Please fix this bug, I LOVE not having to watch ads on YouTube. This is the screenshot: https://gyazo.com/e8af069312549063d747b0b3b59ad0a6

--- 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?

Technical Chrome users: Go to chrome://extensions ->Developer Mode -> Inspect views: background page -> Console. Paste the contents here: No contents in Console. Screenshot of what I saw: https://gyazo.com/bd3adee4f93c0b1d3abf51f4f53b0499

    Hi Jace,

    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.
