Greets,

Just an FYI-For anyone using Ghostery, if yours updated to 6.3.0 recently, you may want to see if any preferences/blocking choices were put back to defaults-noticed it in mine today.  :ranting:

Hmmm. I got tired of fiddling with it so I just kept adding more.

 

Now I have Ghostery, Privacy Badger, Disconnect, NoScript, ABP... a regular little army of icons up there on the address bar. :lmao:

I also used similar ad-ons until I noticed Chrome opens separate processes for each one, even if not active. This plus memory leak was causing a simple gmail tab in chrome to bloat to over 700MB. Now I just use Adblock while incognito for most things. I'm the kind of nerd that sets the background to black and use windows2K type UI for that tiny bit of extra resource, so I understand my abnormality.  :tophat:
