Adblock was working great to block ads on colbert report and daily show until recently. Now the first ads (pre-roll) are blocked, the show starts but the playback "hangs" as soon as the next set of ads is reached. For reference, FF and ABP is working fine on the same sites.

    Can you please go to AdBlock button -> Options -> SUPPORT -> "Have our team requested some debug info?" and paste it into this discussion, and provide a link to the page where you're experiencing this issue?

    How well does it work with Firefox and AdBlock, and/or ABP and Chrome? (get
    our Firefox extension at That might help to
    determine if it is the browser or the extension.

    I'm having the same problem. ABP blocks it without any trouble in Chrome.

    Hi. I'm also experiencing this problem. However, it only happens when combining PepperFlash v. 16 with Adblock in the chrome browser. Dailyshow works just fine when using PepperFlash without Adblock, and it also work fine when disabling PepperFlash and using adobe's flash player (NPAPI) v. 16 or 15 with Adblock in the Chrome browser. I also didn't notice any problems in firefox.

    1. Go to AdBlock button -> Options -> SUPPORT -> "Have our team requested some debug info?" and paste it into this discussion.
    2. Go to the FILTER LISTS tab. Does clicking "update now" fix the problem?
    3. Uncheck all filter lists on the same page and reload the page with the problem. Does the problem disappear?
      • If unchecking all filter lists fixes the problem, which one filter list must you check to cause the problem again after another reload? (make sure to wait for it to fetch the filter first)
