Question about using adblock with a proxy.

I use adblock behind a proxy which requires manual input of network credentials.

Is there a way to prevent adblock from attempting to "update filters" etc. so it does not generate additional web traffic while I am authenticating with the proxy?

(I suspect that adblock may be causing interference during login (but can't confirm).)
This is a low priority issue for me so please don't work too hard on this. :-) Thank you for a wonderful tool.

    OK. I've passed this on to our developers and they may look into it!

    If you have any experience in making Chrome extensions in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery, please take a look at and send us a patch as an attachment! Our code is licensed under the GNU GPLv3.
