Filterlist Update

how often should the filter lists update? In my case they don't at all. Sometimes they didn't update since a week.

    Hi there!

    Sorry about the delayed response. Two things:
    1. The filters MAY take up to 10 days to auto-update, depending on the timing of how you use your computer. The extension spaces out the updates pseudo-intelligently so we don't have 20 million users all updating at once! :) But it should typically update every 4-7 days or so.

    1. You can manually update by clicking the stop sign, choosing Options, and clicking "Update now". But the extension is designed to ensure you shouldn't have to do that unless you want to, as detailed above.

    Happy AdBlocking!
