Not a bad video actually, I finally figured out why my settings weren't being saved. Good info and I finally learned how to block
scripts in Ublock. The coolest part of Ublock is that you can set page rules where as NoScript would do it globally no matter what.

And now that I understand how to make settings either temporary or permanent it will work a lot better.

I have been limping along with Ublock for a long time. Glad to finally get a understanding of it's interface and settings. :thumbup:

So just after learning about how to use Ublock I found this article about 3rd party scripts.

Login With Facebook data hijacked by JavaScript trackers

The abusive scripts were found on 434 of the top 1 million websites including cloud database provider MongoDB. That’s according to Steven Englehardt and his colleagues at Freedom To Tinker, which is hosted by Princeton’s Center For Information Technology Policy.
Seems like this could happen anywhere if I'm right. But not now. ;)
