The recent downvotes about additional permissions to acces IP and hostname are just bad wording on the Firefox permission popup, and there's already a Firefox bug open about this, see https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Permissions#access-ip-address-and-hostname-information . So plese stop downvoting this excellent softawre for no real reason.
According to the developer and my own research, uBlock Origin has no access to YOUR IP address. The extension is asking for permission to access the IP address of the website/server you are trying to connect to. The reason why you may have seen or may now see the "Access IP address and hostname information" notice is because, IRONICALLY, uBlock Origin required more information from the servers being accessed in order to block trackers which had found a technique to bypass the filters/rules that uBlock uses. In order to do so, this was only possible by allowing the extension to access server-side DNS information, which is what triggered the "Access IP address and hostname information" notice.
So, be rest assured that this extension has not sold itself to the devil! We still have a reliable extension being developed by those with our best intentions in mind.
Please see the links below if you would like to look into this further.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 13441211, vor 13 StundenBewertet mit 4 von 5 SternenI'm very satisfied with this extension. Default options right after installation are generally fine. If you want better results, It takes some time to learn about all the available options but the more you learn the more you'll benefit from this fast, light and very customizable extension.
