It seems that a recent update on either Firefox (14.0.1) and/or AdBlock Plus (2.1.2) might be causing problems. Recently, on the Barnes&Noble Nook site, I have been unable to make purchases through my Nook account. I can sign in but when I click on the "Buy Now" button nothing happens. By disabling both and either NoScript and ABP, the only 2 addons I have installed, I found that it was ABP that was causing the problem. I do not have this problem on IE9. I took a look at the ABP forums but didn't seen anything that relevant and a search didn't turn up anything.
I don't know if this problem just affects the Nook site or affects others as well since this is the only place I've had this problem so far.

Lately I've been having a problem with walmart.com. I have to disable noscript and adblock+, then restart Firefox to have the mouse clicks have an effect.
I have no problem when using Opera when accessing walmart,com.
Maybe the next update(s) will fix the issue

ABP normally uses filter subscriptions to configure what it blocks or allows. Mine shows a 5-day expiration, with the current list as of August 4. (Click ABP icon, choose Filter Preferences, then Filter Subscriptions tab.)
I just did an update, and now it's dated August 8.

I checked and ABP hadn't been updated since July. When I tried updating through settings it just said there were none, so I downloaded and reinstalled ABP and it's now updated as of today. However, I can't seem to get the icon to show on my browser.

You can also check the ABP site and it's forums for help:
I did at first and didn't find anything specific to my problem but now that I know it's a bug I'll wait and see. Btw, even after updating I still have the same problem. However, I did find where I could enable and add-on bar which would show the ABP icon but I decided not to take up any more screen real estate with it. I'll just use the drop down menu from Tools.
