    Anyone else start receiving an entire screen popup from Adblock Plus stating to update to the latest version, 3.8.4? I updated Ad Block Plus on both my wife's and my machine but we are both still getting the popup.

    Ironic, isn't it, that Adblock Plus, of all programs, would be doing this?
    Thanks all, Acadia

    Thanks Spartan, it worked. Just puzzled why it started acting up after all these years, on two system, on the same day, and without yet updating Ad Block or Firefox?
    Thanks again, Acadia

    It updates silently and the more it gets updated the more bloat it's getting. For example now if you uncheck the allow acceptable ads button you get a prompt to fill a survey!

    I still use ABP though because out of all the adblockers, this one gives me the least amount of broken sites due to ad blocking.
