Worked wonderfully thank you!
wow this is cool. i hadnt seen this before
Awww your welcome. I run a scan and update the list monthly.
Trackers is what really got me into computers and wanting to know more. I was trying to protect my kids on the social sites when a now friend told me about them. I said whats a tracker and he told me to hit his page. I did then he sent me a email that had soooooooooooooo much information it pretty much freaked me out. Mind you some of the old trackers really showed alot of into. Blocking trackers is so easy with these steps - a couple clicks and your done. Plus adblock will update your subscriptions daily so no worries
One thing it doesnt mention but also does is block ads. A cool thread idea could be a how to block ads and popups which also mention this addon
sounds great if you want to do one
Here is a list of different filters. CLICKY which reminds me to send them a link to ours
I like this. The more protection the better.
I've been a long time user of ABP and this filter list. However, I recently started using Firefox 3.6, and now it seems that ABP/this list does not work. A friend and I tested it out - we both use Statcounter. Before downloading the new Firefox, we had never been able to track each other. Now we can. Has anybody had this experience as well? Any fixes?
Thanks in advance!
I also use Firefox 3.6 and this does work. Its very possible that statcounter is using a new URL that we don't have here yet. Trackers like to change around tracking URLs to throw off other trackers & blockers, this is why the list is updated often. If you can locate the tracking url that would be wonderful. If not you can friend me on myspace and I can locate the URL and add it to the list so once again you are safe. I have no trackers on my myspace so no worries. You can friend me HERE myspace.com/smartmom_debbie or like I said if you can find the tracking URL post it.
EDIT: Make sure you send me a note and tell me this is you.
Just one click and that is all I have to do? How often do you update this list? This is nice and easy so TY.
yep just the one click after you install Firefox and adblock. This will not work on IE (Internet Explorer). The list is updated as we find new trackers (or when they are reported to us). At the very least the list is updated/reviewed once a month.
Glad they were easy to do - that was the whole point of the thread. There is no need for long instructions when this works easy with one click.
