      I am wondering if there is any point to having Privacy Badger when you have Ublock and Umatrix? I ask because I looked it up and it seemed simliar to what those two addons already provided and I am following the advice to not put on too many addons on my waterfox.  If it helps, I am on Linux.

      I am wondering the same for the HTTPS everywhere. Does it really help secure the browsers, with Ublock and Umatrix and even noscript on?

      A question for the moderators, would you be willing to create a new knowledge base for the addons in general? The advantage and disadvantage of these in various browsers, as well which addons should be never used together? I am noticing that many of us constantly ask for these in scattered posts and threads.

      Good question.

      I don’t have any problem with creating an AKB, but I wonder about its usefulness – so many addons, so many browsers, so many platforms.

      Might be better to create a forum for it, so folks can post their experiences in one place. AKBs tend to be static or updated according to a set schedule.

      If a forum, where would you put it?

      Good point.  I would suggest placing the forum under the Browser forum.  That way, anyone who has questions about various addons on various browsers could easily find it.

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
