Same on Kindle Fire HD, too often I find that I'm having to close abp just to be able to visit the Amazon app store & Facebook as although the first page will load the rest just either times out or refuses to load the page or, in the case of fb refuses to load photos.

Been having connectivity issues on LG Motion and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. Seeing connection error on youtube app and browser not able to load a page, as if there was no internet connection when my devices clearly are connected. I have uninstalled the app and reverted proxy settings to default since it renders wifi unusable :(

Patiently waiting for a fix :)

Update: Just wanted to add that for youtube I noticed it will work only after refreshing/retrying connection in the app after several times and it eventually works. Also noticed connectivity issues with Steam app, constantly saying "connecting".

If you really want to see something shocking, if you have ABP installed on your Android device, go to Settings > Data Usage and see how much data ABP is using. If you have it on your phone and are on a tiered mobile data plan, be VERY CAREFUL!!!!!

I had ABP installed on my N7 (2013) running Android 4.3 and in 3 days, ABP had used 1.3GB of data. ABP is now gone from my N7 and will never be installed on any of my devices until this issue is resolved.

:?

Of course the data usage will be high - ABP whilst active sits between the content you are accessing and your device, therefore anything passing through it will add to it's perceived data usage.

It isn't just sitting there using up your data allowance :)

I just set WiFi proxy settings today.
After reading your comments, I tested my Nexus 7 (2013) on Startpage using Firefox and Chrome and the browsers, ADP, and WiFi all work fine.
I haven't spent any time on it, but once I correctly set proxy settings (using Manual) and without rooting, it's working as expected. On the tablet. I had previously added it to Firefox before knowing I had to add it to the device, and it worked as well as it works on my laptop, which is perfectly.

Same problem here with my Xperia Tablet Z (Cyanogenmod, Rooted).

Most of the time YouTube doesn't receive data. Several refreshs are needed till one connection gets through.
Google Play Store extremly glitchy, icons not loading, connection sometimes just drops.
Some websites and even apps kill ABP completely, requiring restart of ABP.

This problem exists since months without fix. It's seriously getting damn annoying.
same here with note3

I'm having the same problem (Nexus 7, Android 4.4.2) A temporary fix that works for me is to bring the ABP UI into focus and let it load. Everytime I do that, the connection is restored for awhile. It doesn't matter whether I have the filtering on or off. Eventually an app will report that there is no connection. I just open the ABP UI again, and that makes things better temporarily.

Obviously, that's not acceptable. Hopefully it's useful information for the developers.
