Can you provide detailed steps on how to reproduce the problem?

  2. login with your account
  3. select any video

What should happen when you do the above steps
vids will somtimes play somtimes wont

What actually happened?

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

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

    Hi Tal,

    Could you please try updating your filter lists? To do that, click the AdBlock button and select Options. On the FILTER LISTS tab click update now and then reload the page where you're seeing the problem.
