How to disable Enhanced Tracking Protection on all sites and for every FF session. Choosing Custom, and deselecting all check boxes doesn't work.

Posted

ETP breaks or interferes with just about every site I frequent. I have tried using the "custom" option and deselecting the 4 tracker options but every site still has ETP enabled, and it is far too time consuming to have to manually turn it off for every website I visit. I would like to find out 1) what I'm doing wrong that the method I've tried to disable ETP isn't working (yes, I reload the page every time), and 2) is there an "about:config" tweak that will turn off ETP globally, as in across the web, and on every new FF session I start? I really don't care who tracks me, but I do care about a feature that makes browsing more tedious and painful. I am using Chrome and Opera in the interim between discovering this annoying "enhancement" and when the FF developers fix it so it can be disabled with one click on a more global and permanent basis. Chrome and Opera don't break websites by default.

Are there "Blocked" items reported if you click the shield icon with all choices disabled in Options/Preferences?

Does the Web Console report any content being blocked by Tracking Protection ?

Yes. There are 2 items in the cross site tracking cookies, and 6 items in the tracking content section. Google analytics is one of the latter.
