Waiting for extension Adblock...

This has happened several times over the past week or so. I'll be surfing along fine, then all of a sudden I'll head to a site and everything comes to a standstill. I look at the bottom of the screen and see Waiting for extension Adblock.... I'm getting more impatient as I get older, so I try to bail out, but nothing happens, so I just end up quitting my browser and opening it up again and everything seems to be fine again. I use Chrome since Firefox and Safari seem to be dog slow even when they're not having issues.

So has anyone else noticed a problem with Adblock lately? I'd hate to have to disable it, but I also hate having to arbitrarily just quit and reopen my browser in the middle of a search.

I switched back to Safari with it's recent updates and have been quite happy. Doesn't directly answer your question, but thought I'd mention it.

Yup, it was killing chrome. I deleted it and am now using "Ad-blocker" which is working fine. Seems to do the same thing.

Thanks. Nice to know I'm not imagining it. Too bad because I only recently noticed this problem with Ad block. I'll check out Ad-blocker.

I was having some problems with Safari on a couple of sites.

Then for some reason I checked Safari extensions and found AdBlock disabled, apparently because it was annoying the OS (Mavs).

I updated AdBlock and all is well.
