As has already been mentioned, this update "adds" functionality as standard such as discovery, site info etc - stuff I didn't want or ask for. It should be turned off as standard IMHO.
Another problem is for some reason the domain XMARKS has been blocked by a number of proxy servers, presumably because of over zealous filter rules thinking its an adult website. Therefore my "synching" no longer works.
Another fan that will now be looking for an alternative.
Hi forstiecuk, you can disable any functionality that you don't wish to use from the Xmarks settings dialog.
Regarding the proxy blocking issue: yes you're right, it's due to xmarks.com being incorrectly classified as an adult website. We're working with the various blacklist providers to get this issue resolved as quickly as possible. If you know who manages your proxy's blacklist, please let us know.
