User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0
Build ID: 20121010144125

Steps to reproduce:

I installed Firefox 16 followed by an update later for 16.0.1


Actual results:

It appears that Adblocker is no longer working in the latest firefox. I noticed a large amount of ad's appearing after updating firefox. Multiple sites same story. Getting popups flash and new window which I wasn't before. Top ad's side ads and video ads all showing up now. Tried to uninstall adblocker and reinstall still dosnt seem to work. Updated the filters.


Expected results:

Should be blocking ads
