Re: µMatrix thread

I think (not sure) what I did was allow (make green) the "marketwatch.com" bar and the site works now. You removed the block rule from g.live.com. uMatrix tells you why the page was blocked: because g.live.com was explicitly blocked. When removing the block rule (more accurately, bypassin...

Re: memory leak when allowing twinmm.com in The Weather Netw

It's not NoScript's fault, it's the site's fault -- a similar issue was opened on my side. The culprit script which contains the flawed code on that site is http://s1.twnmm.com/js/fr_ca/r1309011/modernizr/dfpad/s_code/adb_dil/adobe_audience_manager Some sites are so bent on tracking/data mining you ...

Nothing in 1.6.1 would explain this. Have you tried forcing an update of your filter lists prior to install 1.6.1?

Re: µMatrix thread

Is there a way to update some but not all of the active hosts files? Preferably one by one. Not really. uMatrix will update whatever is deemed obsolete, so all obsolete filter lists will be update upon clicking "Update now". If all filter lists are up to date and you purge the cache for a...

Re: µMatrix thread

for the life-of-me I can't understand why certain commonly used websites get commonly blocked by uMatrix. A dark red cell means there is an explicit rule assigned to it. uMatrix proper has very few rules out of the box: block "all" by default, allow 1st-party, allow css/image from everywh...

Re: XHR/JS...Objects.. NoScript and uBo. Help me understand

That is only because of a Gecko bug that has been fixed in 41 (or was it 42? I kinda skipped a few versions) Fixed in FF 41. The fix certainly helped the Firefox version of ABP a lot. But even then, this is not enough to bring ABP on par with uBO: see Firefox version: benchmarking memory footprint ...

Re: µMatrix thread

So Seamonkey is probably out of luck. SeaMonkey is officially supported, meaning if something does not work on it, I will look into it. There are fixes related to the toolbar icon in the latest dev build (0.9.3.2b2 on AMO). Ultimately, just as with uBO, if there are toolbar icon issues which still ...

Re: XHR/JS...Objects.. NoScript and uBo. Help me understand

With uBO, blocking all frames, 3rd party scripts, and inline scripts allows the FB domain connection, as well as the script. That is incorrect: when blocking 3rd-party scripts everywhere, scripts from Facebook are not loaded when visiting Wired. What exactly led you to your conclusion? Also, why wo...

There is a wiki -- ("Documentation" link in the "About" pane). I warn that uMatrix is for advanced users, and I completely expect that advanced users would find their way to the doc.

Re: µMatrix thread

"rd.yahoo.com" is listed in hpHosts. To override the block, it's just a matter of bringing up the matrix while on the warning page, and override the block rule by just clicking on it. https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/585534/9806858/8b03ad08-5818-11e5-8de2-3f1281e178f0.png Force a...
