None of my ad blockers are working, anyone else having this issue?

Assuming that it'll be fixed by the fall, but just wanted to check if it was a problem others are having.

Turn whatever content blocker you're using off and then turn it back on. I had to do that with Crystal back in the developer beta 1. It's been fine since in beta 2 and 3.

I don't know if it's still the case (sounds like you have multiple content blockers running?) but isn't it better to just run one and not have a bunch running, conflicting with each other.

I've noticed that as well. Every couple weeks whatever ad-blocker I use tops working. I toggle it off, then back on, and it's good again. No idea what is happening but I've definitely seen that behavior several times.

Hmm, should have tried this before I made this thread, but I had to uninstall and reinstall to get them working again.

Edit:

Interestingly enough, this didn't work on my iPhone, but it did on my iPad Pro.

Anyone have any suggestions as to why it worked on one and not the other?

OP which adblocker are you using? I'm using purify and sometimes I see ads. Turning it on and off doesn't seems to fix it. I'm using an iPhone 6s plus

I'm using Blockr and I'm having the same issues. It gives an error when i try to update the filters.

I'm using Adguard on my iPad mini 4, it stays on all the time and I don't get errors updating the filters.

I've tried a variety of blockers, one at a time of course.

Crystal
