how can I view the details of blocked trackers and cookies

Posted

I love the content block feature, and see the list of trackers it blocked. I like to see the actual code for each blocked tracker. I have fiddler installed and configured, and have tried to use the "view page source", but did not find the content I am looking for. One of the blocked items for instance was google analytics, and I was able to see the html content. But there are others that I do not see. I think the site is adding permissions for location tracking, and I want to validate it.

Hi sansari1, I don't know if this will give you exactly the information that you are looking for but, you might find it interesting: Firefox Lightbeam "Lightbeam is a Firefox add-on that enables you to see the first and third party sites you interact with on the Web. Using interactive visualizations, Lightbeam shows you the relationships between these third parties and the sites you visit."

Select Save Data and take a look at the json file.

And Firefox uses block lists from Disconnect: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disconnect/ who might have more information for you.

Thank you so much. Just installed it, and saw the result which seems to have the missing sites I was looking for. I'll reach out to Disconnect also.
