    Yes its good people can see how much crap most websites want to load of 3th party scripts.
    Do remember that your browser is giving much info to ! OS and Browser and more machine info!

    I'm having reasonable success with Ghostery. Works similar to NoScript which I've used in the past. (Somehow, NS got lost in an Ff upgrade, still dunno what happened.)

    @Merkun an expired cert broke all addons.

    upgrade to the latest firefox 67 plus plus then see if NoScript comes back or try to re-install NoScript

    Also, I disabled telemetry in Firefox:

    [Tip] Disable Telemetry and Data Collection in Mozilla Firefox Web Browser - AskVG

    I used uBlock Origin together with NoScript:

    uBlock Origin – Get this Extension for Firefox (en-US)


    Cookie AutoDelete – Get this Extension for Firefox (en-US)


    Decentraleyes – Get this Extension for Firefox (en-US)

    TunnelBear Blocker:

    TunnelBear Blocker – Get this Extension for Firefox (en-US)

    and HTTPS Everywhere:

    HTTPS Everywhere – Get this Extension for Firefox (en-US)

    I also selected additional filter lists for uBlock Origin from FilterLists:

    FilterLists | Subscriptions for uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, AdGuard, ...

    including those used for Nano Defender and Adguard.

    I also installed Waterfox to run legacy addons like DownThemAll and Flashgot:

    Browse the web YOUR way

    I might move to the Waterfox that uses the the latest Firefox version once it is completed.

    I also installed Tor Browser if I need to access particular websites:

    The Tor Project | Privacy & Freedom Online

    or use a VPN.

    Finally, I installed Iridium:

    which is based on the same code as Chrome but with privacy and other issues removed.
