TrackerBlock

Be Kind To Idiots Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please make the setting up of this add-on a little easier for those of us who don't know much about computers. I installed TrackerBlock, clicked a "more" button and was told that I didn't need to do anything more and then clicked again and was told that a zillion tracking companies were now under my control, and was asked to check a box allowing the sending of information to TrackerBlock. What box? Where? I finally clicked the TrackerBlock symbol on Firefox and found the box with the check boxes that must be checked in order for TrackerBlock to do anything at all. I had missed, the first time around, the little "options" box at the bottom of the first page. I hadn't scrolled down because I'd had no idea that there was anything down to which to scroll. Clicking "options" displays the box with the check boxes. Those "options" are about as optional as breathing. Please make them more easily found. Once the check boxes are checked, TrackerBlock seems to work beautifully. I'm finding blank spots where I used to find annoying ads, and ads aren't popping up where I don't want them, and many pages seem to load faster. Even with the niggling complaint above, TrackerBlock rates a 5.
