Cannot change settings due to data corruption
- Adblock Plus 3.8.3+
iris (see forum thread):
- Chrome (on two different devices with two different OSs)
loganj (see forum thread):
- Firefox (across multiple browser profiles)
How to reproduce
- Open Advanced tab in desktop settings page.
- Uncheck "Show useful notifications".
Checkbox remains checked.
Checkbox is unchecked.
- Newtab-type donations notification (see https://gitlab.com/eyeo/adblockplus/abpui/adblockplusui/-/issues/730) also opened after each browser start.
- None of the other customization options can be unchecked either.
- Chrome: Settings appear to be kept across restarts (incl. browser settings, open tabs, logins) and Adblock Plus settings remain the same. Problem remains after uninstalling.
Possibly unrelated but additional users who experience the newtab-type notification opening repeatedly:
