Yahoo is now reporting that DoNotTrack is disabled on it's site.... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I still appreciate this add-on but it's evidently not working on Yahoo now. Naturally I blame this on Yahoo, but still....This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.1083.1-signed).
Yahoo! and "do not track"
Thanks for asking about this. DoNotTrackMe works and protects you on Yahoo! What Yahoo! has said is they will not support the technical standard which is also called "do not track". We realize this is confusing but rest assured, tracking you see on Yahoo! or Yahoo! properties that you decide to block is being blocked.
I take back half the bads things I thought about the developers.... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
It's been programed (using flash, I think) and the dialog boxes run off the screen where you have to reset your screen resolution to see all of the dialog box as simply resizing the browser magnification doesn't solve this (it's an issue with some websites for people using older CRT 4:3 aspect monitors that needs to be addressed unless everyone wants those to end up in the dump prematurely)
It's possible that the dialog box issue is actually a flash issue but I would not be surprised at all to find out that it's simply that the developers of various pages and apps are simply being lazy and/or assuming everyone has a brand new nuclear-powered wide monitor or that everyone is not as environmentally-conscious as they claim and trashed their old monitors in favor of the newer ones with different screen resolution settings.
This makes it hard to find the settings to turn off the auto-inserting of your masked email address on some web pages.
I deleted my older, not as good review in light of the dialog boxes running off the screen MIGHT be a Flash issue..... but I'm not completely convinced of that.
Thanks for your detailed review. To address a couple of your concerns/questions:
* You can turn off the auto-inserting of masked emails by opening DoNotTrackMe (click the browser toolbar icon) and going to Settings (gear icon on top right). Then just tick off "Auto fill Masked Emails for logins". Alternatively, if you want to turn it off for just specific websites, toggle "Don't track my email here" to off on whichever websites you want to.
