    Chrome, and its extensions will use the configured OS proxy server.

    To download the filter lists, the AdBlock extension does a typical request for a file using a URL. For example, the Easy List filter list is at:

    Are you updating the filters on the AdBlock options page? Are you seeing an errors?
    Would the proxy server block the above URL?
