2 Melih:

Here in comodo forum Disconnect and Ghostery found google analytics and block it, while PD didn't detect anything ?
Block all Ad Networks in PD is turned on.
Can you clarify more on this ?

Try disabling Ghostery and then check again.

that wouldn't make any difference because its app feature not conflicts between them !
But sure why not...disconnect + ghostery disabled, same thing !

I think it's not getting anything because Adblock Plus is on.

I think ABP is not the case why PD is not blocking google analytics.
Maybe by PD google analytics is OK, so it doesn't block it !
This is just a thought not a claim :)

Hi Mark1

Seems we indeed missed something. I will check it more clearly this week.

Thank you for feedback.

Hi Mark1.

We have updated our threat list, and now on comodo forums you will see positive blocked count. Please check it, and tell us if all is going right.

Thank you Melih! Ghostery is now history. Hey I'm a poet!

Thanks again. :)

Not yet. Ghostery is on the official Mozilla addons list, while PrivDog is not. It also has a stronger marketing and PrivDog is almost in oblivion.

I've learnt about it only a couple of days ago, and before that I had no clue, and I know things.

Spread the word first. Than Ghostery is history. Maybe.

P.S. In case you want a fresh XPI, I've just extracted one. August, 2014. Ver. 2.2.0.14.
Get it here:

AdTrustMedia.com.xpi]PrivDog Ver. 2.2.0.14 Firefox XPI[/
MD5: A76E366FA897EFE7D642D62D11E50F11
SHA-1: 4A83630773DEDDFD656655C8652B7399588B146A

I added MD5 and SHA1 hashes to your download link. Eric

It is our job to protect your from 2 things

1)Malvertising (malware being distributed via ads)
2)Irrelevant advertising

We take this responsibility so very seriously.
You should see the huge development effort underway to make this happen for our users! Its huge!!

IMHO, I do not think solely browser addons (xpi's, crx's, etc) are what is required.
The browser is only a portion of the system that connects to the outside world and even a smaller portion when talking specific browsers.
There is little advantage in protecting individual system components, but rather protection for the system as a whole.
Protection needs to be system wide as with your other security/anti-malware components/programs and I imagine PrivDog's Developer's to be seeing this as the main avenue for protecting all users in the future.

Just my thoughts. :)
