Firefox and adblock problem

I use Firefox, with adblock, and for some reason, the easylist filter causes my Yahoo search autocomplete to disappear when I mouse over it. It doesn't happen on the home page, only once I start a search, for example, I type in "bleeping" and hit enter, and it brings me to the list of searches it found. Then I put my cursor in the search bar, and it brings down a list of stuff related to "bleeping", and I go to click on one of them, the whole list just disappears. If I turn adblock off, or the easylist off, it doesn't happen, but with just easylist filter off, it doesn't really block any ads. Is there any way around this?

 

Edit: It also does it when I put my cursor over the mail icon too. Instead of it dropping down and showing the first couple emails, it doesn't drop down at all. Turning adblock, or easylist filter off fixes it.

I don't believe that it did, but my email is through yahoo, so I use that as my homepage.

I tried Yahoo and Google with Firefox and the Adblock Plus extension. I cannot reproduce what you're experiencing.

 

Please type about:support in the Firefox address bar.

Press Enter.

Can you paste it into Notepad instead, and attach it to your next reply?

One other thing to try. Disable all add-ons, except for Adblobk Plus. Try Yahoo again.

This is on a new build/windows install, so I don't have any add-ons besides adblock and classic theme restorer, but still does it with just classic theme restorer off.

There's been an update on Firefox today. It's now version 35.0.1. Try updating.

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Adblock Plus?

Yeah, to no avail. Doesn't happen without adblock, happens after reinstalling it.
