    I didn't see anyone using magic actions for youtube. One of the best.

    Not one of those is a Firefox E-X-T-E-N-S-I-O-N.

    All running A-OK in Cyberfox Intel X64 Portable 43.0.2. However, as of a few days ago Trustwave's lookup server aip-180.trustwave.com has gone 404. I've sent a detailed report to their support. Hope they haven't given up on this service - been using it since the SB2/M86 days. Ghostery is currently working on their resource:// Options "blank page" snafu when using Adblock Plus; neither apps' functionality is compromised and the workaround is simple enough.
    12/30 edit: Ghostery fixed. Trustwave server has resumed online.

    ublock replaces: noscript (except ABE-function and redirections), ABP/ABE (any kind of adblock and forks), adguard, adfender, privacy badger, WOT, disconnect/blur, and some more.

    i have close to 50 - and working. depends of purpose and usage. addons which work on websites need more action, some are pretty small in code.

    but i think some of those at chris offer duplicate functions or are ophans with no effect. stylish can replace tabs on bottom. some are not operartional any longer, in special those for new searchbar. he did not wrote firefox version.

    Firefox runs just fine. At one time I had over 100 of them installed. One draw back is finding that pesky extension that might be causing a problem.

    It always has been stable on well configured and managed systems and even systems not so much. If you are having trouble with FF on your borked clapped-out system :D you should try Cyberfox.

    No kidding, that would be indeed a big drawback, but credits to FF for running stable with that many extensions. I do need to warn you that you're also more vulnerable to security/privacy issues, you never know if one of them is acting maliciously in the background.

    tried it last days and dropped it, get "remove_google_redirect_in_google_search_results-0.0.4" instead.

    How can you be sure about that? Privacy Badger has a different approach of Disconnect, for example. Same as WOT. One extension can overrride all others?

    Sorry for my english.

    WOT is a user base driven list - no accuracy, no superset control, but all elements are also in the hosts file
    ublock can use disconnect list but that is same as the useable hosts list
    adblocking lists are nearly the same, they gain profit from each other.
    privacy badger is against tracking domains, those are same and more in the hosts lists

    some told me that PB uses some kind of heuristics, thats correct but very very simple
    description: https://github.com/EFForg/privacybadgerfirefox

    in fact DNT privacy is not really given, firefox has already an option for it
    ublock can block third party by default, that includes 3rd-party cookies, firefox can do same with 3rd-party cookies but uBlock has the option to refine per website
    ublock uses blacklist by default, whitelist be enabling certain hosts in the matrix.

    the used lists in ublock are valuable. and uBlock can do much more if you will investigate - eg granular script blocking based on strings
    its close to an swiss army knife :D

    btw comodo created a browser with ublock built in instead adblock or privacy badger, cant be such bad.

    Possibly the most extensions I've had on Fx for a long time.
