Go to Tools > Add-Ons and disable all your add-ons and see if that works.

If it does, re-enable them one at a time and re-test until you identify the culprit add-on.

Weird, I've got ABP without any problems. Might be some settings in the plugin or try updating it.

disable everywhere(not checked)
show tabs on flash and java(checked)
hide placeholders of blocked elements(checked)
counter filter hits(checked)
show in add on bar(not checked)

Same options checked as mine.

Go to Tools > Add-Ons > Extensions to see what version of ABP you have. Mine is 2.0.3

Do a Ctrl+Shift+F (all at same time).

Then Actions > Update Filters.

Also check that allow some non-intrusive advertising is checked.

If that doesn't fix it I'm stumped.

the non intrusive advertising is checkd-have no option to update filters

when i do the ctrl,shift and f it comes up with 2 options-exception rules and adblocking rules these are both checkd with an actions box next to each one-there is no option to update filter

Ctrl-T will do it after you have opened the Ctrl-Shift-F window.

The other thing you can do is check the 'show in add on bar' from the main options and use that to disable ABP on problem sites only.

OK one final thing to try.

On the Ctrl-Shift-F window, click on Filter Subscriptions.

What Filter subscriptions do you have?

OK go to http://www.fanboy.co.nz/

and click on Add Fanboy Adblock list to Firefox.

Then enable it on that ctrl-shift-f window.

An alternative filter list to the default. For whatever reason (I can't remember) I worked out this was the best one to use with ABP.

Depends on if it is still doing the job for you or not.

Looks like tweaking ABP is the answer to your problem anyway. Might be worth doing a search at https://adblockplus.org/forum/ if you are still not happy with it.

Just to let people know, you don't get any of this s**t with a Mac, it just works. Apparently PC users spend like 10 times longer each year troubleshooting their machine whereas my well out-of-date Mac Mini has never so much as had a glitch. Its now 6 years old and its really refreshing not having to deal with planned obsolescence after 2 years.
