Adblocker Blocking everything?

Post by kadakufox » Wed Jun 15, 2016 2:48 am

I recently decided to update my slimbrower adblocker filelist the easy list within the options to do so... afterwards adblocker is preventing access from nearly all sites... Text; read only sort of content is the only thing getting through.... I uninstalled slimbrowser including all personal data and tried installing the newest version 8.00.001 but nothing seems to be working with adblocker enabled. Is there something I'm missing or overlooking?

SAME HERE!

I found it is blocking everything starting/containing *m*.

Problem is in the EasyList (English Sites)_rule.txt FILE.

File DOES NOT APPEAR to be a NORMAL MS/WINDOWS FORMATTED FILE (Carriage Return/Line Feed [CR]/[LF]) so I have not been able to edit it myself and can not find a place to download a CLEAN/FIXED version yet.

Easylist will get feedback on the problem; give them a couple days to figure it out and download the list again.

I tried it just now. With easy list enabled, I don't have problem accessing various sites. Did you try manually updating the filter lists? You can do that in Tools:Ad blocker:Ad blocker options, Click the button "Update Filters".

If it doesn't work for you, please provide a test site url and I will check it out.

Thank your for the reply.
Tried it on my newly rebuilt/reinstalled Windows Vista PC and it seems to be working again as it should across the various www's I went to.
