button disappeared since upgrade Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi, I've been using this great addon for several months, very happy with it (even though it could be improved by letting choose which requests to unblock), but since a recent upgrade (Firefox 45 on Fedora 23/64 I think), I can't see the button/icon anymore. Any clue ?

We appreciate the heads-up on this. We do have a new extension that combines the protection from our Facebook, Google and Twitter Disconnect extensions and adds more tracker blocking and customization. In this extension, you can block and unblock requests and whitelist an entire webpage. You can find it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disconnect/

facebook disconnect Rated 5 out of 5 stars


「Facebook」による tracking を防止するために、“特化した機能” です。 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

「投稿者: Jantje - May 8, 2015 」のReviewに同意します。

しかしながら Review と評価が不当なほどに低く、また利用者も少ないことが残念です。
Facebook-Disconnect は、「Facebook」による tracking を防止するために、“特化した機能” です。
この付加機能は、クロスサイト・リクエスト(ウェブサイトに複合的に仕組まれた巧妙な個人情報収集手段)を利用するなどして、Facebook社が “個人情報の収集” をしているウェブサイトを default(規定)で切断をします。そのため、目的のウェブサイトとの接続も不能になることがあります。「切断」実行時には、ステータスバーの右側に “青いアイコン” が表示されます。接続を許可する場合には、そのアイコンを Click して、プルダウンメニュー内に表示される「Facebook-requests」の項を Click(接続/切断)すれば、サイトとの接続(切断)が行えます。

この付加機能は、厄介なクロスサイト・リクエストに潜ませた Facebook 社の tracking を 「探知」し、「切断」し、「警告」してくれます。大変有意義で、出色の付加機能です。機能が絞り込まれているうえ、十分に設計された作品なので、確実に機能し、しかも至極シンプルです。

「Google、Facebook、Twitter」は、サービス利用者の “閲覧履歴や様々な個人情報” を狡猾なほどに、巧妙に収集(Tracking)していることは周知の事実です。Google社を中心として、Facebook社、Twitter社、広告会社、通販会社などがネットワークを構成し、収集した個人情報を共有し、活用していることが明らかになっています。その問題点を認識した上で、(Google、Facebook、Twitter などの)利用の必要性を判断すべきと忠告します。

A contributor agree to "Jantje - May 8, 2015" Review.

However, They are low so that Review and an evaluation are unfair, and I am sad.
It is thought that there are the misunderstanding for the function, lack of understanding.
Facebook-Disconnect is "the function is specialized" to prevent tracking by "Facebook".
Facebook company does it using a "CSR"(cross site request : skillful means to collect personal information contrived compositely in the website) and doing "collection of personal information".
default(rule) of this addition function disconnect it.
Therefore the objective connection with the website may become impossible, too. If "Disconnect" was carried out, "a blue icon" is displayed on the right side of the status bar. If Click does the icon when you admit connection, and Click (Connection / Disconnect ) does a clause of "Facebook-requests" displayed within a pull-down menu, you can perform the Connection (Disconnect ) with the site.

This addition function performs "Detection" of Tracking by Facebook company that are hidden behind in CSR(cross site request). and "Disconnect", and makes "Warning". It is very significant and is excellent addition function. Because a function is simplification and is a work designed enough, it functions surely. Besides, it is quite simple.

"Google, Facebook, Twitter" are cunning and it is a well-known fact skillfully to collect "a reading history and various personal information" of the service user.
Led by Google Corporation, Facebook company, Twitter company, an advertising agency, a mail-order firm constitute a network and share the personal information that they collected, and what they utilize becomes clear.You advise that you should judge the need of those use after having recognized the problems (such as Google, Facebook, Twitter).

No good Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Causes problems on various websites, namely comments won't show up.

works like a charm for me Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Some people complain they cannot log-in to certain websites while having this active. I never had any problem with that but you can switch off this add-on per website and that should resolve it. It warns you with an icon when you visit a website that does use facebook(tracking) and I love this little add-on

HuffPost comments blocked Rated 4 out of 5 stars

great product, but since the integration of Facebook to Huff Post, comments are blocked!

Does not work ! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Definitely does not work , this morning I received an email from clearly.com and I visited the website to check some prices. This afternoon I log onto Facebook and presto there is an add on the rhs from the website "Clearly.com.au" I have the screenshot .
I also double checked that the add-on was selected to run . so much for no tracking lol , waste of time !
Actually I also noticed it has the ebay adds , I visited ebay as well.

Facebook Disconnect Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems to work as advertised. How ever after the add-on I receive an unusual amount of tracking cookies and have to clear them at least 3 times a day. Before I was clearing cookies no more that once a month.

It's ok. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As far as I can see it works as intended and blocks the Facebook on websites. If a website login for example is tied to Facebook then you'll be unable to login as expected. It will prevent Facebook from recording your behaviour on a website to their archives. And when you visit a website where the article comments are tied to Facebook comments you'll be unable to see the comments, again, just as expected. I pretty much recommend this based on the fact that Facebook is a cancer that has infiltrated to so many websites that I cannot even keep count of it any more. I want some privacy.

Be-ware: Probably written by FB Rated 1 out of 5 stars

would not be surprised if this was written by FB employee. Beware of these FB only blockers... Disconnect gets all up inside your computer and snoops around, will not get out of your browser. Disconnect is probably owned by FB and collects information on you, following you around the internet like FB anyway. NO NO.

Facebook opt out email site/connected email Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Gmail sign in unto mozilla thunderbird

totally useless Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Where to begin:

- Makes FF very slow
- Prevents lots of websites for being loaded, some website simply don't load at all
- Unable to login at multiple websites

So 2 stars for the effort. Thnx but I had to delete your addon.

A very, very Must Have Add-on

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the same review I gave to Face Book Purity ... if you don't know about that App, be sure to check it out!! If Facebook weren't so darn handy as a social tool, I would have ditched them long ago. I hate the bastards for their invasive snooping and gorilla marketing tactics. Not to mention the fact that they are tightly interlaced with Government spying and corporate control strategies (not that there's ever any real escape from any of that). Anything or anybody who can put a dent in their maniacal and "anti-social" personality type behaviors is a King in my book. Onward brave soldiers and thank you!!

prevents sign-in on pcworld.com Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good idea and good add-on. But while Facebook Disconnect 2.1.3 is enabled, I can't login to pcworld.com. All their social media icons are missing on the login overlay, which I understand, and of course I can't login using my facebook id. But the problem is that I can't even login using my pcworld.com ID which should be independent of facebook or the others. I looked at support site but I'm not willing to register there to post on the forum so I had no choice but to post this yere.

Hi if I have addon DoNotTrackMe and/or Adblock that mean I don´t need to install this addon?

I can't see that this add-on does anything at all. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've NEVER seen the blue icon in my location bar. I've NEVER seen the red icon for Google Disconnect, and I've NEVER seen the icon for Twitter Disconnect either. No evidence whatsoever that these add-ons do anything. I've disabled them all, for now. If I'm wrong, please explain what I'm missing, and describe how I (and everyone) can determine whether or not your add-ons are working.

You’re wrong :-)

But I’m sorry I missed your comment till now and thanks for writing. Here’s why:

The reason the Facebook Disconnect icon wasn’t showing up for you is that you’re running (or were) some other filtering add-on, like an ad blocker. The way Firefox works is that filtering add-ons get to filter requests in the order the add-ons are installed.

If you install Some Facebook-Blocking Add-on (SFBA) before you install Facebook Disconnect, SFBA will block Facebook requests, the requests will never go through Facebook Disconnect, and the icon won’t show up. On the other hand, if you install Facebook Disconnect before you install SFBA, Facebook Disconnect will block Facebook requests, the icon will show up, and the requests will never go through SFBA.

I hope that’s the explanation you were looking for (and it’d be swell if you updated your review!).
