If I disable EasyList everything is fine.

Any idea of what could cause this problem?
Problem solved.

I've tested the same thing on Chrome and everything was fine so I tried to completely remove and reinstall ABP. Now everything is ok, Forbes webpages load and I don't have any ad.

Okay, will these filters be added to the Adblock Warning Removal List?

Thanks. I'm still just figuring out the purpose of this board. I initially thought it was just to report ads for future updates to the filter lists, but now realizing it's at least as much a DIY resource since the authors are overwhelmed.

That said I'd like to thank the authors for putting in their free time for this. I'm curious, though: development of ABP is funded by the Respectable Ads Program and donations, but Easy List isn't? Isn't most of what makes ABP work the lists?

Forbes seems intent on showing ads don't they. lol.
At least try PhenQ from https://skinnyexpress.com/phenq-review-and-results before hand.

Can't access Forbes anymore. I guess I've kinda given up trying to read anything on it.

I just tried it and it works for me, but I had to make sure to enter them as two separate filters, each one beginning with "@@."

I decided to disable adp. For some reason it was no longer working. I have a whole string of custom filters and unsure if something broke it. Anyways I enabled regular adblock and entered the filters above. That works.

Maybe the problem was something I was doing with ADP.

This is the list I have on ADP: http://pastebin.com/raw/Ru6SFTzL

Some ads are blocked, but oddly some of the filters are ineffective. The ones related to Forbes were ineffective on this list, but were effective for regular adblock.

You have to add the filters correctly: any filter on its own line

wrong filters:

Code: Select all

||revcontent.com^[email protected]@||forbes.com^[email protected]@||forbes.com^$genericblock||moatads.com^$domain=forbes.com||sharethrough.com^$domain=forbes.com||amazon-adsystem.com^$domain=forbes.com||tpc.googlesyndication.com^$domain=forbes.com||googleads.g.doubleclick.net^$domain=forbes.com||s0.2mdn.net^$domain=forbes.comforbes.com##[id^="google_ads_iframe"]forbes.com##[id^="top-ad"]||securepubads.g.doubleclick.net^[email protected]@||securepubads.g.doubleclick.net/gampad/ads?gdfp_req=1&correlator=$domain=forbes.com
You should delete all those filters and add correctly only those still necessary ..

forbes.com forces you to disable adblock for the website before entering. Hitting "continue to site >" will just lead to the same page. If I have it "Disable on this page only" in ADP, I can get around it, and it adds "@@|https://www.forbes.com/forbes/welcome/?$document" to the exception rules.
