RE: Dictionary.com not working correctly in Opera
I'm apparently not doing a very good job of explaining the situation. The add-ons are doing exactly what they are supposed to do and disabling them is irrelevant to the point. The purpose of the add-ons are to provide better privacy and/or security and of course as a consequence of disabling the add-ons besides losing the security they provide the add-ons would then not be blocking the sites that are required to have the part of the Dictionary.com website discussed here work as it should so as a consequence of disabling them the Dictionary.com website issues would be resolved but obviously at the expense of not having the advantages provided by the add-ons. Let me be clear that this is not to say that the problem is with the add-ons at all but rather what it means is that what would be better off blocked which is what the add-ons provide for the sake of better security and/or privacy is what is apparently problematic with Opera and Chrome to a lesser extent. And rather than simply disabling the add-ons all one has to do is use the options the add-ons provide as I did which is to have the add-ons allow the sites that for whatever inexplicable reason for Opera and in part for Chrome as well need to have done so that the Dictionary.com website will work properly.
So actually no, by having the add-ons block the stipulated sites which consequentially breaks the Dictionary.com website does NOT "confirm that this is an extension problem" simply because it is not the extension that is causing the problem but rather the requirement by Opera and Chrome to access these advertising or social-media sites for the Dictionary.com website to work correctly. What I'm apparently not getting across is that many websites will not work properly unless specific sites fundamental for the website to work are allowed. Typically the fundamental aspects that cannot be blocked do not include advertising and/or social media sites as is the case here. But to suggest just because a website does not work properly due to these add-ons blocking specific site connections equates to the add-ons being the problem is misunderstanding what it is the add-ons provide in the first place. Simply stated, because optionally toggling the setting for the add-ons to not block the sites discussed here will resolve the issue is all the evidence one needs to understand that the add-ons are not to blame since they apparently are doing what they are intended to do regardless of whether the stipulated sites are blocked or not blocked.
So NO, there is no "conflict" and no need to contact the add-on developers since the add-ons perform as expected which is to provide added privacy and/or security when possible which in the case due to how Chrome works with this website is not possible. Which is the entire point here considering that some browsers do not require this compromise as Opera and Chrome do but then it all depends upon how important privacy and/or security is to the user.
So while I thank you very much for your time and kind attention in this matter, rest assured that there is absolutely no problem at all with the add-ons in any way. Again, it simply comes down to how Opera and Chrome function in contrast to Pale Moon and Firefox neither of which have the same issues as far as requiring access to these advertising and/or social-media sites for the Dictionary.com website to work properly and let me also be clear that by no means does this suggest a specific conflict of any kind involving the add-ons with either Opera or Chrome.
If you continue to hold the opinion that add-ons are the problem then I'm sorry to say that I'm apparently still failing to get my point across and we can leave it at that. Again many thanks for your input.
