update installation doesn't work

Adblock Plus itself is great, but update installation with MacBook Air is defective. About a month ago my OS started signaling me that there was an update it wants to install. I go over, and it's an update to Adblock Plus. I click update, but the update won't install. Over and over again. So I keep getting pestering notices to go install this update, that won't install.

Works well but

After much research, I understand the issue with Apple changing the rules on the devs so they had to build this app from scratch. Works well for me so far, except for one annoying problem. I use Yahoo mail and it's not hiding the ad that appears in the top line of the inbox even with unchecking the Acceptable Ads box, which is super annoying. I know the devs are watching these reviews, so if someone can point me to an extension or something that will fix that, I'd appreciate it. Was using AdGuard and it fixed that problem, but that app behaves like spyware and is constantly running in the background even after you close Safari.

New framework seems to have performance issues

This version of ABP for the new Safari framework unfortuantely seems to kill performance on my computers. Maybe it’s partially related to them being a bit older (one is a Mid 2011 Mini, the other is a 2012 iMac), but with ABP enabled I can’t even open a new tab/window and type a URL into the bar and expect Safari to accept the input without having to hold down the return key until it goes or wait a minute after opening a new tab or window. I also noticed that using Twitter was jumpy and lagged even with simple typing, it felt like all the dynamic content it relies on was just struggling to be processed through whatever framework Apple is forcing. Hopefully the devloper can figure out the performance issues because it’s really, really bad now.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! Thank you for taking your time to review! We are indeed currently still adapting to Apple's recent changes and forced framework. This performance issue has been noted and we're working on fixing it with the next update. In the meantime, you can try to restart the Safari browser for a temporary fix. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us at for any other issues!
