57 Is absolute disastrous for add-ons!!! Do yourself a favor and disable your Firefox auto upgrade/update settings until your add-ons are........ upgraded!

Got to find a way to downgrade my Ubuntu back to 56 now :-(.

Don't forget to disable as much of the telemetry as you can find to prevent it 'calling home'
Firefox is rather bad in this respect, have a trawl through About Config and you will find many instances of it, seemingly FF is just as nosy as Chrome

Yes i have considered the people that work hard on some websites and so have the adblock developers and this is why they allow their users to add exceptions meaning that if the user wishes to support a website via allowing the ads though then they can do this easily.

As for relying totally on ad revenue for your income that was a choice you made just like its your choice on weather you charge your visitors to access your content. If your visitors feel its worth the price you want to charge them, then maybe they will support you, then again maybe they will just look elsewhere for similar content. Without knowing what your site(s) are about its impossible to tell if your ads are good or bad or if the content is good as we all have different tastes and visit different sites for our interests.

Now what i do find funny though is that your calling me a leecher because i supported a developer for his hard work and that developer isn't you at this time. You also have no idea what sites i visit nor the exceptions i have so you dont know what sites i do or do not support.

Why people are putting any silly stuff as freebie here!

I can see dome uses for an addon like this as it simply automates something that saves a little time.

As far as slowing a browser down, with the speed of machines today, you would either have something of a dinosaur of a PC or a few other things that are really impacting on performance.

A breakdown of HUKD's background activity based on that and my knowledge of these peeps:

optimizely.com is for edits to the site and keeping it online with new changes. This is why its first line; they have multiple versions - they do a change, roll it out with no downtime
amazonaws.com is the host for the website (They're a money pit I hate them with a passion)
typekit.com provides the non standard web fonts and track the licensing most probably
merketo.net do sales as a service (SAAS) so are here to help HUKD make money no doubt
chartbeat.net provides analytics for assessing visitors to the site for the owner.
and doubleclick.net are just ad servers to gain revenue from the site (these are the only ones here purely to generate income from tracking/ads - but could also be the main revenue stream for HUKD)

So there you go!

I tried Firefound and set the "emergency data protection plan" to delete my passwords. Sounded like a good idea. The next time I restarted the browser it brought up a dialog box that said I had 10 seconds (SERIOUSLY *10* SECONDS!) to enter my username and password. I blinked a couple times to see if I had read that right, then tried to enter my username and password as quickly as possible. Needless to say, I couldn't do that in 10 seconds, so I lost all of my stored passwords. They're gone.I had thought it would give me multiple tries, warnings, etc., before deleting anything, but nope, just 10 seconds and it's all gone. None of this is explained anywhere on any documentation for the plug-in that I could find in the plug-in itself or the website (actually there is no documentation currently as far as I could find).This plug-in is a neat idea, but in it's current form it's likely to cause data loss to unsuspecting users.Rated 2 out of 5 stars by dave on December 1, 2009I'd be a panicker, lol

The IP address alone is not sufficient as this may just offer the location of the Internet Service Provider machine servicing requests from each of the remote client machines.

Equally, not every Internet user connects from a fixed point (i.e. dial-up from various locations, not an ADSL [Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line] connection from a fixed location) nor has a fixed IP address but is offered a dynamic IP address from the DCHP [Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol] server on each connection.

Interesting idea. Heat added for the listing.However, if I was going to … Interesting idea. Heat added for the listing.However, if I was going to steal a laptop the first thing I would do would be to disable the on-board wireless connectivity in case the rightful owner had this enabled on boot-up. I certainly I would not try to connect to the Internet using the previous owner’s details (even if they had left the user name & password automatically inserted into the recognised forms through the settings in Firefox; that I would recommend should also be protected with a “Master” password).If the laptop has been stolen for re-sale & the contents are not important to the thief, they may well either just re-format the hard drive or simply replace it without ever accessing it.I have not tried this as a feasible practice, but I have been considering a different approach based on hardware, rather than software (such as a Firefox Add-on, or any utility that requires the laptop to be switch on). I have been thinking about using a Global Positioning System Pet tracking device (like the microchips that can be inserted just under the skin of a dog or cat) & attaching one inside the laptop case.Should your laptop be stolen you can then ring the dedicated line (or use the web site facility) to track the computer without it being powered-up or even connected to the Internet at all.In many cases it is not the loss of the asset that is the most valuable part of laptop ownership; it is the data that you have upon it.If you regularly take your laptop away from a fixed location (or even if you do not depending on your domestic physical security measures) some form of automated data encryption facility for the hard drive contents may well be worth considering.Although Mobile telephone handsets may not be able to be protected like this (if the casing is unable to be opened, or in doing so you may void any warranty with the original manufacturer) but desktop-based computers, video games consoles, personal video recorders, Hi-Fi equipment, & so on can all be protected by the use of a GPS Pet tracking device.BFN,fp.
