Hey, I was looking for an "innocent until proven guilty" sort of filter for AdBlock, and came across this discussion:

I tried to activate it, but nothing happened. Ads are still blocked on every site. What's going on?

    Hi Amias,

    Hm. Let's start with some basic troubleshooting information. Can you please click the AdBlock button and select Options, then click SUPPORT. Next to "Have our team requested some debug info?" click here and paste the text from the box into this discussion.

    It's possible I'm running an older version of Adblock, I'm not sure. I'm on Arch Linux running Chrome so it could be outdated.

    Hi Amias,

    Your copy of AdBlock is the latest version. I'm seeing some errors in your debugging information. I'm not sure whether they're related to the version of Linux you're using. Can you please uninstall and reinstall AdBlock and let us know if that helps?
