Activation link generate confusion

The activation link is not clear.
I desactivated the module, probably for testing then a few days later I went to Firefox > Module and put
"activate", but actually you need to activate it on another place.

This introduce confusion because people believe it is activated and not working.

    These are two different things: "Adblock Paused" just means that the extension is not currently running on this page (and it does not run on about: pages, like the Add-Ons page); "Enable" or "Disable" (respectively "Activer" or "Désactiver" in French, literally "Activate" or "Deactivate") refers to whether the extension is loaded at all.

    Maybe AdBlock could be coded so that its tooltip on such special pages says something like "AdBlock does not run on 'about:' pages" or "on 'chrome:' pages" or other special types of pages.
