FIXED: Links on don't open in a new tab with AdBlock running

Some users have reported that they are unable to open links in a new tab using the middle mouse button or wheel on the website The "ads blocked" counter increments. Pausing AdBlock allows the middle-click function to work as expected.

As is so often the case when a website isn't working properly, this is an issue with a filter list, not AdBlock. According to a post on the EasyList French (Liste FR) forum, a particularly restrictive filter in the French filter list is the culprit here. The solution is to add an exception to that filter to AdBlock's custom filters.

  1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options, then click the CUSTOMIZE tab.
  2. Click Edit to open the custom filters box.
  3. Paste the text below exactly as it appears here:
  4. Click Save.
  5. Reload the page.
