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

    Hi Cheyenne,

    According to the debug information that accompanied your report, you are not subscribed to any of the built-in filter lists. That means AdBlock's standard functionality is not affecting your browsing.

    However, you do have a custom filter that may be preventing Facebook from working. If that is what's being blocked on your Chromebook, let's try getting rid of it and see if it helps.

    1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options. Click the CUSTOMIZE tab.
    2. Next to Manually edit your filters click Edit.
    3. Delete the line containing the word "facebook."
    4. Click Save and reload your Facebook page.

    If that doesn't help or if something other than Facebook is being blocked, can you tell us more about what's happening? Please attach a screenshot if you can.
