I think adblock is working as there are no more Ads but the button has disappeared completely, how to get it back?

    If you see a "Hide Button" link - then the button should be showing - if
    about:extensions has AdBlock and no "show button" button, then the button
    should be there in the top-right.

    Hi, I cannot get a screenshot of my extensions page as my capture extension will not work with Google, however I will attach a saved picture of my extensions, thanks for your concern but although button is missing everything seems to be working.

    A saved page probably won't work. Most computers have screenshot shortcuts
    built in. See for info. (it will
    automatically adapt for your current OS.

    Hello Dave,

    I think that the AdBlock button doesn't get enough space on your browser bar to show. I attached a screenshot with some arrows where I think you need to slide the vertical line to the left/right. (Just play a bit with it..)

    Kind Regards,
