Fix: “Subscription storage is full” error in AdBlock Plus for Microsoft Edge
Microsoft introduced extensions for Edge with the Anniversary Update for Windows 10. While the majority of users welcomed this addition, there are some who actually got headaches using some of the buggy extensions.
AdBlock Plus is by far the most popular extension for Microsoft Edge, but it still has to be polished to work flawlessly. So far, that’s not the case: both AdBlock’s and Microsoft’s forums are full of complaints about the issue with overloaded subscription storage. Users said that they’re being bombarded with the error message “Subscription storage is full. Please remove some subscriptions and try again.”
This happens because AdBlock Plus for Microsoft Edge currently supports a maximum of only two filter lists, so if you have three or more, you’re going to get this error message.
What’s illogical here is that when you install AdBlock Plus on your Microsoft Edge browser, it gives you additional options to block malware, remove social media buttons, and disable tracking. If you decide to use all these additions, you’ll have a total of five filtered lists in your AdBlock Plus extension, and the error message will make it impossible for you to use the browser normally.
As many users want to take the full advantage of AdBlock Plus, they enable all three additions and the problem then occurs.
To solve this problem, you simply need to uninstall AdBlock Plus from Microsoft Edge and then install it again without enabling those additions. Once you install just the extension itself, you won’t have any problems using it.
If you don’t know how to do that, just follow these instructions:
- Open Microsoft Edge
- Click on the three dotted-menu, and go to Extensions
- Choose AdBlock Plus, click on it, and go to Uninstall
- Wait for the extension to uninstall
- Now, get back to the three dotted-menu > Extensions, and go to Get extensions from the Store
- Find AdBlock Plus in the Store, and install it once again
- Once you install it, just make sure you chose to use block malware, remove social media buttons, and disable tracking, and you’re good to go.
After performing this action, you should be able to use AdBlock Plus in Microsoft Edge once again. This issue is quite odd because you basically can’t use any of AdBlock Plus’ additional features even if they’re theoretically available.
But if the issue still persist, we also recommend you to download this tool (100% safe and tested by us) to scan and fix various PC problems, such as malware, file loss and hardware failure.
We hope that AdBlock will fix this strange problem with a future update because the current state of the extension annoys a lot of people. However, extensions for Microsoft Edge are still young, so we shouldn’t be surprised because they’re not working as expected. We’re sure a lot of updates for them are ahead of us.
