Update: AdBlock Plus Crashes

Firefox started crashing again when I went into WordPress ‘Visual Mode’ when composing a new post. This led me to believe that AdBlock Plus may not be the trouble. I had to end up removing AdBlock Plus add-on as well as the Adblock Plus folder within my profile folder. I thought it may had been Google Gears so I uninstalled the application and add-on from my system completely. I reinstalled AdBlock Plus, restarted Firefox and then went to load the EasyElement filter set and discovered I could not find this filter set. On EasyList was this note: List formerly known as EasyElement is now included in EasyList. Well that explains why Firefox has started crashing again. So right now I have Adblock Plus installed but without any filter sets installed.

However, today something happened that has not before, BreakPad kicked in and I was able to submit a crash report. I’ve already emailed the info to the AdBlock Plus developer but anyone else who wants to take a look at the report here it is:


Here is the info on the current Firefox build I am using and the add-ons installed:
