Extension uBlock Origin conflicts with Ghostery

  • I was told uBlock origin was good, so I removed Adblock plus and installed uBlock origin, but it appears to be in conflict with Ghostery, cause Ghostery was showing a long warning message. http://i.imgur.com/2HkOXiA.png I tried running both extensions on Chrome, they work well with no conflict. So I guess it's an issue on Vivaldi's side? I am using 1.0.420.4 (Developer Build) (64-bit) on Win 7 [attachment=2824]vv.png[/attachment] Attachments: [img]https://forum.vivaldi.net/uploads/attachments/74218/vv.png[/img]

  • It also does this in the Linux Deb x64 version [1.0.418.3 (Developer Build) dev (64-bit)], & has done so for the past several snapshots. It did NOT used to do this, but i cannot recall exactly in which snapshot it started to conflict. Notwithstanding, as far as i can tell in each of those extensions' dropdown/popup GUIs, they still seem to be working ok.

  • using Vivaldi 1.1.453.43 (Developer Build) (64-bit) - Win7 Pro

    cannot get options to open from vivaldi:\extensions

    ghostery first disabled, then removed, no difference

    In Chrome and FireFox an options toggle offers "Dashboard" where settings are set, including other block lists and updating the lists. This appears to be an incompatability between Vivaldi and the extension, when it is downloaded/installed from the Chrome webstore

    toggling "Options" on the extension manager window will open a small window, with addon name and closing box.

    The error message first starting this thread likely is not a worry - two filters looking to do the same thing, one does it first, with privacy/security intact, but the Chromium code causes an error report. The same thing has shown up in Google Chrome when two security extensions aim to alter the same thing, one gets priority, the other displays a pink error message.

    Raymond Hill, uBlock origin and uMatrix author appears disinclined to support the extension for other than mainstream browses, with that an understandable thing for a free item.

    Raymond Hill, uBlock origin author explains things - Ghostory + UBO - that form of message


    Don't worry. Be happy.
