    I think this is not a priority to @gorhill at the moment. We're just lucky he fixed the important parts of the first abandoned project.

    I couldn't find the commit(s) that implemented this, otherwise I could try to compile it myself in the 1.4.4 code...

    i integrated some changes from nutensor and other commits into my 1.4.3beta.

    about reddit - thats really odd, used 1.4.4 and the cname feature and ...fastly... showed up, 1.4.3beta not and no fastly.net in the matrix - and reddit was fully shown (in special the topics at the top have content now).

    The CNAME reveal function only showed up at new instals; not when updated from previous versions (see here):
    This is what mine looks like:

    It's really weird that in your case it's the opposite...

    to remember
    in case of using this feature umatrix will break webpages here - as ublock did. it may be helpfull for investigating purpose but not for general usage. at least a lot of pages are hosted on cdn/cloud services. in case of reddit i have to set a lot of additional (and unique) settings for fastly-cloud, and this is only one page. without cname most pages fit with one general setting and do not need additional cname settings which blows the rules list in a not necessary way.

    currently i stay on 1.4.3beta and will see, how it works and what will happen.

    A bit late but thank you for patching uMatrix, @gorhill.

    Hi,

    I am still using umatrix and I see that I cannot play anymore youtube videos. I have allowed youtube and googlevideo but the play button gets stopped automatically. If I disable umatrix it works. Any ideas?

    Nobody can help you if you don't tell what exactly is blocked by uMatrix. Detailed info can be found in its logger.

    Apart from this usiing uBlock Origin with Dynamic Filtering makes using uMatrix pointless, IMO. On the contrary, your example shows that using both add-ons makes it more difficult to determine what exactly is blocked by which add-on.

    EDIT: You might be interested in what I wrote here.

    Hi @summerheat,

    I found the culprit. I was blocking the cookies from youtube. And the one that needs to be whitelisted is:
    Interesting as I do not change my settings once I configure a site.

    No, it doesn't. I have cookies for YT blocked in Firefox. That means that comments are not displayed, though.

    I have one more question. Umatrix blocks the iframe in all web pages, I visit some webpages I find the external frame and I make it green in the panel but the frame does not load. it shows the grey border which allows you to click it to open in new tab. How can I allow the frame for very specific pages?

    I need some help on unblocking some elements from 2 sites that I am interested. Anybody can give me a hand? I have used the logger but could not figure it out.

    @Brummelchen: I tested even the site given and it does not work?

    i asked for an image, not another problematic page for you.

    hint: if you miss frames or external content allow XHR and frames.

    Even when disabling uMatrix on that page I didn't see the tweets.
    Had to disable Enhanced Tracking Protection (Firefox; icon left from the padlock).

    the issue for him seems not only twitter related - the last given link need access to a widget site. (frames on the right side with NBA results
    Code:
    basketforum.gr widgets.proballers.com frame allow
    basketforum.gr widgets.proballers.com xhr allow
    
    and this one for the twitter iframe
    Code:
    basketforum.gr s9e.github.io frame allow
    basketforum.gr platform.twitter.com frame allow
    
    not that hard to find out in the matrix!

    firefox has no change, strong settings.

    for general allow
    Code:
    * s9e.github.io frame allow
    * platform.twitter.com frame allow
    
    disabling ublock make frames visible but no content -> XHR/FRAMES
    but that is basic training

    Thanks!
    I've been struggling with these Twitter embeds myself. :D
    Of course I still had to disable Firefox protection...

    @Brummelchen: You asked an image of what?
    I checked the site with:
    • firefox and umatrix and ublock
    • edge and ublock
    to understand the difference and what is causing the problem. I see in the ublock logger that the XHR does not appear. Here is my settings in umatrix
    https://imageupload.io/i/Efwwsrxavb

    PS: I do not care about the widget, I know it is coming from the proballers domain, i do not care about it.

    PS2: It seems that I have the same problem with @nicolaasjan , I had to disable the firefox tracking to get the script from platform.twitter.com and cdn.syndication.twimg.com

    PS3: Thank you both for looking at it.

    i asked because i can compare here. just telling "i am missing twitter" is not enough, in special when there are several XHR/FRAMES to work on.
    because uBo do not know about XHR, this thread is about umatrix.

    for me, firefox is fully enabled, not "strong", its "custom" set here. "strong" is stronger than "custom"
