Adblock Plus Not Working in General Product Support Posted November 14, 2016 · Report reply Thanks, BugMiss. Here's a bit of bonus info. After coming back from my sister's house with all my software apps updates ... after experimenting around with MX5, I did eventually perform yet another reinstall of 126.96.36.1990. And this time around --- neither logging into my Google account nor bringing up my BlogSpot Blog nor attempting a Major Geeks download jump started Adblock Plus. So that proved that 7twenty was correct regarding saying that that last time that Adblock Plus suddenly started working again around that time frame of when I logged onto Google and brought up my BlogSpot Blog and performed that Major Geeks download --- was just coincidence. Adblock Plus just eventually starts working on its own later on. But, I have yet to zero in on what makes it not work in the beginning and what makes it start working later on. Let me ask this: Okay ... upon EVERY fresh install of Maxthon, does it ALWAYS attempt to update the EasyList as one of the 1st things it does upon being connected to the Internet? Cuz if that is the case, then as I was telling 7twenty, that could be the culprit right there. Maybe the initial download of that EasyList updating attempt always fails because of my Dial Up and so I start out with a corrupt EasyList and thus, no Adblock Plus in the beginning. Then later on once I've let it be, it eventually manages to update the EasyList and starts working again.
