For some reason my adblock plus no longer blocks ad's on sites and i do not know why. It just started not working today and i can't figure out why. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall and still nothing. The only thing i can think of is if i uninstall and have it forget all my info.

It is possible that there is a problem with the file(s) that store the extensions registry.

Delete the files extensions.* (e.g. extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini, extensions.cache) and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.

New files will be created when required.

Won't deleting that profile also delete all the saved passwords? (I hate to think of that problem!)
