uBlock Origin 0.9.8.5 ist erschienen!
Die neuesten Versionen und Informationen gibts immer hier:
Firefox support for browser settings has been added, so now the new privacy settings in the Settings pane are also effective in Firefox.
A new privacy setting has been added:
[ ] Disable hyperlink auditing/beacon
Checked by default. Background information regarding hyperlink auditing.
Note that with Chromium, hyperlink auditing is enabled by default, and there is no UI in the browser setting pages to disable it. Now there is with uBlock. (edit: ok, there is a sort of UI, not exactly user friendly and upfront though.)
With the following steps I can have Google generate a ping request, so I use these to validate that the disabling of hyperlink auditing works:
Open the logger, select Behind the scene scope.
In Google, search buy iphone.
Find a link to bestbuy.com in the links offered as result (I get one to bestbuy.ca).
Click that link.
If hyperlink auditing is not disabled, you should see a behind-the-scene request to google.*.
The setting will also affect whether navigator.sendBeacon is enabled/disabled. You can see these behind-the-scene requests while navigating Gihub (https://www.google-analytics.com/collect). Unfortunately, it does not seem possible at this time to disable navigator.sendBeacon in Chromium.
Closed as fixed:
uBlock Origin latest not working on Android Firefox
Unchecking uBlock's Hyperlink-Auditing option enables pings even though browser default is false
Tab selection (eg. from element picker in network log) not working
Support img's tag "srcset"
Bug: Backup / Restore roundtrip adds filter lists
