    I am having issues with Safari Adblock. Running Safari 4.04, Adblock 0.4.0 RC3 in Snow Leopard. Also, running Safari in 32 bit mode. I have been using Safari with Adblock in Snow Leopard since it was released without issue. All of a sudden it just stopped working. Preferences say it is enabled. Restarted Safari, restarted Adblock, restarted the entire PC, checked for updates, and reinstalled Adblock. None of these things worked. Can anyone help?

    The subscription URL has changed for EasyList+EasyPrivacy. Firefox automatically updates but Safari does not. I just copied and pasted the new subscription location and Safari Adblock is working again.

    Yes, Safari does. Safari AdBlock and SafariBlock are 3rd party add-ons, which will be upgraded to be compatible with SL when their developers choose. Safari has nothing to do with that, just like Firefox has no control over when its 3rd party add-ons are updated.
