Safari appears to disable AdBlock every time I close the window.

Lately I've had to enter Safari Preferences and enable AdBlock every time I open Safari. Is there a way to default to AdBlock always being enabled?

    Hi Steve,

    If Safari is unable to update AdBlock, or if AdBlock is being reset every time you start Safari, uninstalling and reinstalling AdBlock usually solves the problem.

    If you've reinstalled AdBlock and it's still happening, however, it probably means Safari is hanging on to an installation file that should be deleted when you uninstall AdBlock. Please follow the instructions in this Knowledge Base article to uninstall AdBlock in a way that Safari can't ignore: AdBlock is constantly being uninstalled or reset in Safari

    Let us know if you're still having trouble!
