I have found that it is just as easy to go to that page, RIGHT CLICK in the page somewhere, and the do the "Save As', and save it to your adblock,ini file in the Iron install folder.
NOTE!! REMOVE THE .txt from the end of the name BEFORE you finish the Save As!

Right click in it, anywhere (it doesn't select anything). The Right click menu should have the 'Save As' option in it. Select that. You should get the Windows save box with the file name at the bottom reading adblcok.ini.txt
REMOVE the .txt so it reads adblcok.ini, and then path to the install folder for Iron and save it, allow it it overwrite.
I do this several times a week, with Iron open, and it hasn't failed to update yet.

Also, you do not have to manually scroll through all the text on the page to select it.
1- HIGHLIGHT the top line, or even a small part of it.
2- use the scroll bar or page keys to get to the bottom of the page.
3- Hold the SHIFT key down.
4- Click the cursor after the the last word in the last line to HIGHLIGHT all of the page's text.
5- Do a right click COPY or (CTRL-C)
5- Paste (CTRL+V) into a Notepad document.
Yeah, I know about the 'advanced date thing. Fanboy's page is made on HIS current date. I'm guessing it is from New Zealand since it has a .nz suffix.
