"It is important to note that you should not add too many filterlists to Adblock Plus. This will slow down the adblocker, therefore, your browsing. As a rule of thumb, it is highly recommended to not use overlapping filterlists (e.g. choose either EasyList OR Fanboy's List)."

Use Fanboy's Ultimate, https://www.fanboy.co.nz/filters.html, with Malware Domains and Adblock Warning Removal List, en/subscriptions, and that should cover everything.

Fanboy's Ultimate contains everything from EasyList, EasyPrivacy, Fanboy's Annoyances, Fanboy's Social Blocking List and its version, Fanboy's Ultimate, has some listings in its Enhanced Tracking and Annoyances sections that aren't included in the ones listed in the separate EasyList, EasyPrivacy, Fanboy's Annoyances, Fanboy's Social Blocking List lists (which seems odd since they are said to be merged but they appear to have divergent listings with the Fanboy Ultimate offering more).
