I was going to ask about blocking Google....

So I've been trying to set up FF to block Google and Facebook everywhere but google.com and facebook.com.

I am a user of both Google and FB and want to allow full scripting capabilities at those domains. But I don't want to allow third party websites to send usage stats to Google or Facebook. A large number of sites use Google services like gstatic and analytics. And Facebook is everywhere, too. So naturally, it would be useful to be able to block those sites everywhere but at their own domains.

But when I came here to post a question about using NoScript to set this up, I noticed that this forum requires allowing Google just to post a question (the reCaptcha script).

That's unfortunate.

We don't make the forum software, complaining to us about it is a waste of time.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
