Straightforward and easy to set up. In response to Rick; you generally never want more than one adblocker. It can create conflicts.
-An excellent tool, a great extension the only criticism I have to make to it is its hunger for processing the application that ends up leaving us limited to some items.
to those people who wants to protect
their privacy, I recommend this extension!!!
i remember back in the day i used to use this add-on, this was before uBlock Origin and Privacy Badger. But this add-on doesn't play well with those add-ons installed as well. it clashes with one or both of them and the drop down menu looks weird. Also the settings still don't save on the newest version. i'm probably gonna get an automated type of copy and paste response, "Our users have had issues with this and we are looking into it", which i've been seeing for the longest, probably the past year now, on both addons.mozilla.org and their Facebook page. They just paste the same replies over and over again. it's like they don't have the knowledge to fix the problems, and i don't know this factors into it if at all - https://blog.disconnect.me/no-longer-a-b-corp/
Then this extension uses Dom Storage. Why?
Also, on another topic, why when Google blocked Google Search from https://search.disconnect.me/ about a year and a half ago and you replied on your Facebook page that you guys were looking into it and would fix it. Not only has it not been restored but you guys have been silent.
I have been using this add-on for years and love it. However, I just updated FF to version 56.0.2 on my Mac and the icon in the toolbar is now a green thingy instead of the black D it was before and clicking on it does nothing. I've removed and reinstalled it with no change.
EDIT: And then there was Firefox Quantum and most of the extensions fail to work. So I decided to install FF 52.5 ESR as that version will get security updates until May (I think it was). So I'm waiting it out now until the dust settles and extensions have been made to work with FF Quantum.
Thank you for taking the time to share what you're seeing with our extension as that is definitely not normal. We have had reports of some users encountering issues with the extension, and we've been digging into this issue to get to the bottom of what is going on for these users.
Te protege a la hora de navegar.
Gracias por compartir.
Disconnect always used to block ads. Then a year or so ago it stopped working with Firefox. After a very long period of time it re-appeared, fixed. Trouble is now it lets ads through when a page loads, but when the page is refreshed the ads disappear. So I don't know whether it's stopping sites tracking me, which I guess is its core purpose.
Edit (Oct 29): Tried re-installing, didn't fix it.
March 15, 2018: Any progress on a fix for this? I've been very patient.
Thank you for sharing your experience, and that is very strange. While our extension does not block all ads, it is designed to block those that are privacy invasive. If you haven't, you may want to uninstall then reinstall the extension to be sure it's properly set up since you've had trouble with the extension previously as well.
Thanks for this addon. Still tweaking, but it does what it's intended for...
We really appreciate you sharing your experience!
Very good.THANK YOU!
Thank you for your kind words!
I use this in combination with Adblock Plus and it does a great job with blocking trackers while not negatively impacting performance. Great add-on!
Thank you for sharing your experience!
I've just found out about Disconnect through an old LH article, but when I want to install, it wants a shitload of permissions to my tabs and data. Some explanation would be nice. Written by a techie, not by a marketer, please.
Also, reading through a couple of reviews, I find the developer replies are not written by a dev but clearly by a 'communicator', they are typical corporate responses. This makes you sound like an advertising company, not like a bunch of geeks I would trust.
Prove me wrong, I challenge thee.
Sidenote, AMO won't let me post a review without a rating, so I went for the middle ground here. Not gonna dock you points without having used your stuff, but obviously can't give you full score either for the very same reason.
Our Disconnect private browsing extension exposes an API that allows us to redirect connections on websites you visit to about:blank. The extension tells your browser to look for requests that match our blacklist and redirect them, thus preventing them from connecting and being able to track you.
Compared to Ghostery it's much better, it blocks trackers automatically, doesn't have a big impact on Performance, Easy GUI, Just plan easy to use. :)
Thank you very much for your kind words!
All I get is the puzzle piece.
dom.storage.enabled is True.
dom.storagemanager.enabled is false.
I will NOT allow cookies as my default position on CookieMonster - no way.
I even tried UNinstalling AdBlockPlus before installing Disconnect but does not help.
I have left Disconnect UNinstalled for now.
Thank you for letting us know what you're seeing. We have had reports of some odd issues with the extension not displaying properly, and our team is digging into what could be causing this trouble for the users who see it so we can make sure everyone is able to use our extension.
I used Disconnect (alongside Privacy Badger) for a few weeks.
Too many parts of the GUI are ambiguous so today I disabled the extension.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and your feedback on this. If you ever have any questions, please be sure to reach out to us at email@example.com. We would be glad to clear up anything that is unclear.
How is it to claim this to be a digital defence when the extension for it to work requires enabled cookie and DOM storage?
Also, it appears that the website disconnect.me is utilizing canvas fingerprinting, a rather curious effort to profile website visitors…
Thank you for sharing your experience and feedback. We are investigating different methods of allowing our extension to work without needing the dom.storage and cookies enabled to allow users with different configurations to use the extension.
This add-on is very useful for privacy. It's open-source and easy-to-use.
That said, it doesn't function at all if Firefox is set not to store any cookies or DOM storage (please fix!); it simply displays an inactive puzzle piece. Also, it could be improved with a 'block everything by default' option for those who want to do so.
Other than that, it's a wonderful add-on that is well-worth installing.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on this. We are looking into how we can alter the extension to work correctly without needing these settings. We're also looking to add the option for users to universally block Content, understanding that this may cause some websites not to load properly.
ok بسیار عالز
Great Add-on. thanks.
Does "Disconnect" do "Disconnect for Facebook" job? (I know "Disconnect" do much more, but this particular job)
Thank you for your kind words, and Disconnect does include the protection of Disconnect Facebook. With Disconnect, you do not need to have Disconnect Facebook installed to be protected.
Un très bon module. A very good plugin !
Thank you for your kind words!
Using with firefox on my laptop and pc. Happy to find it on firefox for Android too.
