Adblockers Impacting Google Docs

April 15, 2021

Android Police reported that you may have experienced some weird stuff if you use Google Docs or Slides and have an adblocker installed. Apparently, you may not be able to edit the document or observe some weird text formatting. Remy Burger, Google Drive Product Manager, stated that the problem surfaced after adblockers implemented a recent change. Changes to AdBlock’s and EasyList’s blocklists, which are used by most if not all adblockers, seems to be the root cause.

You can try and disable the adblocker to see if that will provide temporary relief. The good news is that AdBlock issued a statement saying that a fix will be available shortly.
