How does one use this option? Is it actually functional? What exactly does it do?

الحل المُختار

Here we go: "The "Trusted front-end" preference has to do with the way the cookie-detecting add-on communicates with the SVG web page that displays the graph. It's an implementation detail that probably never should have been exposed to the user and will be taken out in the next version.

However, if you're looking for a way to tell Collusion that you trust a certain site and don't want it shown on the graph, you'll be happy to know that I'm working on a "whitelist" feature to do this: https://github.com/toolness/collusion/issues/28

The CPU spike is because we're laying out the graph using a physics-simulation algorithm: it treats the nodes as similarly-charged particles connected by springs, in order to "untangle" the graph as much as possible. It doesn't scale super well to graphs with a lot of nodes in them, so I'm looking for optimizations: https://github.com/toolness/collusion/issues/24

Thanks for your feedback, --Jono"

See --> https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/collusion/

There should be an icon in the lower right corner of the browser in the Add-on Bar

My question pertains to the use of the Trusted front-end option within the extension. How does that aspect of the extension work? I already have the extension installed. I know what the add-on bar is. I have read the link you provided. It doesn't not mention the ""Trusted front-end"" let alone how to use it.

If you have actually installed the extension yourself, please go to Tools, Add-ons, then click on the Extensions tab on the left and then click on preferences of the Collusion extension to know what I'm having difficulty with.

I looked at Collusion a few days ago when I first heard about it and did not find it useful for myself so I removed it. I do not keep cookies beyond the current session, restart Firefox several times per day and keep cookies cleaned out while browsing. I also use Private Browsing at all times, so cookies would not be saved beyond the current session anyway.

You can send an e-mail to the developer at the e-mail address on this page:

Is that all Collusion does? It just checks cookies? It seems to me that it is easier just to set Firefox to block cookies by default and make exceptions for those that are needed. That way, you have no unwanted cookies, and no tracking cookies.

I just want to know how a particular aspect of the Collusion add-on works.

You would be better off emailing the developer of the addon, as he will be able to help you understand how the addon works.

vasa1:

I have searched for any documentation on/explanation of the settings in Collusion and have found no information.

That is the reason that I suggested you contact the developer about your question at this link --> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/3026617/

I have done so and I hope to get a reply. If I do, I'll certainly share the information here.

I find it interesting using the mozilla collusion plugin that mozilla does tracking...

This program is a total dog if you're running 3ds max and have Mozilla open at the same time! It should not be installed if you are running any version of 3ds max as it causes the Open File dialogs to freeze, become unresponsive, the programs interface is lost and the screen blows out to a single enlarged viewport. NEVER NEVER NEVER install this plugin if you are running 3ds max.

Once I removed Collusion, all of my problems went away and 3ds max returned to normal, which was a great relief as once more I can now have both Mozilla and 3ds max open at the same time and not worry about losing my interface and all of my hard work.
