uMatrix fullfill all the tasks, what i need to have on my browser, all websites are set suspicious and blocks all vulnerable elements.
But i would likely uMatrix to remember my trusted choices, especially some domains, like googlevideo.com, gstatic or Captcha services.
I don't want to re-enable those things over and over again on different sites.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoIf you want one or more rules to apply everywhere, just select the global scope, set the rule(s), then click the padlock to save them. Rules set in the global scope will apply everywhere, on all sites. The padlock will make these rules permanent, they will still be there when you reload the extension.
I wrote a new mini guide for this today (2017-11-27):

This occurs mostly on login pages, and one has to go to the extension page and disable uMatrix to login to a site. This is across both Linux and Windows.
If there was a way to COMPLETELY disable uMatix from the toolbar... well that would be great.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoThe idea is that you should configure the proper ruleset once for the login then you will be set forever. You can create rules in the global scope for things that will often need whitelisting. The top-left cell is the scope selector, from where you can access the global scope.
In any case, you can disable globally by selecting the global scope and toggle off matrix filtering, not recommended though, best is to create the needed rules so you do not have to ever disable globally.
If you submitted your specific issue in the forum I could probably guide you on how to solve your specific issue: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/support-umatrix/5131
- Rated 4 out of 5by TradeHound, 5 years agoI really like that you can block everything within one add on. I am still learning how to use it. Two things would be great to add:
1. I would like to be able to import my old NoScript whitelist.
2. NoScript had a feature that you could middle-click on a domain in the dropdown list and you could customize to go to another website:
I had it so I could quickly check that domain on Norton, like this:
It would put "someSite.com" (whatever you middle-clicked on) on the path
