As with any whitelist, it took a while to set up RequestPolicy to my needs, but now my browsing is faster (no third-party ads, social plugins), more private (no social plugins again) and more secure (prevents potential XSS and CSRF attacks).
In future versions, I'd like to see improved handling of redirects (when a redirect to a payment gateway is blocked and then I allow it using the button in the yellow bar, it says "invalid request") and an option to mix "base domain" and "full domain" matching (e.g. allow destination googleapis.net, allow destination maps.google.com, but not *.google.com).
It's very helpful, definitely beats using Auto-Type (in accuracy) or copy'n'paste (in comfort). Also, new versions with improvements come fairly often.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.4).
I couldn't find any support e-mail or forums, so I'm writing here.Unfortunately, in Thunderbird it works correctly only for IMAP authentication. POP authentication seems to be unaffected and SMTP authentication doesn't show the server hostname.I'd also like to have the URI scheme included (e.g. smtp://, imap://, pop3://).
EDIT] I tried to change the usernames according to your advice and it mostly worked, but I can't log into my university account with the new username.
Simple and effective. It could be more customizable, though.
