As a user I love adblock. As a developer, I'm frustrated when page elements are blocked but I can't see which elements they are. The little icon shows the count, but I don't know which ones they are.
I found this KB article:

But easylist is massive and there's no way to see which rule is blocking an element. In most cases it's because of naming something incorrectly. My company is an ad agency but we don't show advertising on our site, but images are blocked because of 'ad' or something similar.

    Hi Jason,

    You can see what's being blocked on our resource list. Here's how:

    1. Go to AdBlock button > Options, and on the "GENERAL" tab select I'm an advanced user, show me advanced options.
    2. Reload the page where elements are being blocked.
    3. Click the AdBlock button, Show the resource list.

    Please let me know if there's anything else you need!
