Ublock Origins Extra - no longer working on current builds.

  • Seems that this extension that serves a great purpose is no longer working. The devs for the extension have already been notified of the findings I've come across, they said it's on Opera to make the necessary changes within the browser, supposedly. Please see what can be done. https://github.com/gorhill/uBO-Extra.

    Ublock Origins Extra. - Some of us really do care.
    Purpose
    To foil hostile anti-user mechanisms used to work around content blockers or even privacy settings in a browser.

    Instart Logic's technology used to disguise third-party network requests as first-party network requests, including the writing/reading of third-party cookies as first-party cookies. I consider this to be extremely hostile to users, even those not using a content blocker, as it allows third-party servers to read/write cookies even if a user chose to block 3rd-party cookies through your browser setting.

    The company behind the technology understands how hostile its technology is to users, and thus tries to hide what is being done by making it difficult to investigate by detecting whether the browser's developer console is opened, and when it detects it is opened, it ceases completely to make use of the obfuscation mechanism. The developer console-detecting code works only for Chromium-based browsers however, and therefore the obfuscation technology is not used when using Firefox (a different web page is served for Firefox).

    P.S. - An actual response from someone would be appreciated.

  • @hbxg0d It's a Chromium issue? If so, then it's better to report the problem to them.

  • Already reported it to Chromium, you guys and the extension developers....lets see who actually does something to fix it.
