Firefox Meltdown

actually, you can support Linux.org by installing it and running it for 30 days :)
I followed your link and installed Brave. Settings and operation seem like any other browser, but I don't see how it will pay linux.org for using it. I don't want their rewards for accepting ads (kinda weird when they include an ad blocker). Anyway, I'll tinker with it for 30 days, at least. I also like Vivaldi.

Had something similar a few minutes ago, in Syvia - it told me Ublock Origin was not trusted and was disabled.

As you know, Wizard, this has already been fixed with the latest update to Firefox. I was just curious. Why is there a need to use an adblocker when Firefox has it's own privacy protection function? Mine is set to strict and I don't have any issues with websites breaking.

Chrome is supposed to disable ad blockers. Google is worse than MS. Google doesn't just want to run everything, they want to know what everyone is doing, while they're running everything.
You are absolutely right! I only use Chrome now and again when listening to a music video on YouTube because there is a add on called Volume Master that lets me boost the volume nice and loud.

I use Firefox most of the time because I love it's built in privacy tracking protection and reading mode. Firefox continue working with all websites I visit, where Chrome or Chromium stops working until the net update or even later on some sites.

It is "kinda weird" that Brave "blocks" ads but pays for displaying ads. Actually not weird but rather concerning and one of the issues to be considered when using Brave. A browser maker making deals and "playing favorites" or "whitelisting" certain advertisers is very concerning. While their intentions may be good I am not convinced their methodology is conducive of an "open internet".

Does anyone know what list Firefox privacy tracking protection use? I works great on all websites, in spite of the warning that some websites can break.
