Google Analytics OPT-OUT Browser Add-on 0.9.6 doesn't retain OPT-OUT settings...never did really. Also JAVA now refuses to create updates for WinXP/FireFox.

I use PaleMoon now trying to get rid of advertising sharks. I have WINXP still - need assistive-technology computer for pain so taking time on getting new computer.
I have been severely sabotaged by advertising conglomerates selling my private information. They have no right -yet they do whatever they want. Anyhow...I've tried to OPT-OUT of EVERYTHING POSSIBLE. I've tried 5 places found. Google, NAI, DAA, & FIREFOX HELP said go to about:config was instructed to turn "from false to true" the "privacy.tracking.protection.enabled" .But I couldn't keep this setting because this also has to be set to false to use any saved log-on's to my accounts., and add-on AD BLOCK PLUS 2.6.7 when I was on Firefox & had some ticks and now it is disabled because it won't work with PaleMoon 25.2.1
This case is about GOOGLE OPT-OUT. Starting here: http://www.google.com/settings/ads?hl=en&sig=ACi0TCgWymel0CNWxdcnEWPzWNs9wDd7cVQHxHsmtz4w30CAyHk7MqyzzZdGh3m6FpDaJsKmunTLEvJZY5LAm3h6gIdzE30L-Q There are 2 columns. The left one "ADS ON GOOGLE" NEVER RETAINS AFTER LOG-OFF. The right column "Google ads across the web " seems to retain sometimes - if I remember right it falls off after a period of time as opposed to after just LOGGING-OFF. Below the columns there are options, but I don't have a GOOGLE ACCOUNT.
Also down there is this link: https://support.google.com/adsense/troubleshooter/1631343?hl=en ...you see the box with this: Advertising industry program participation Google is a participating member of groups that have developed industry privacy standards like the Ad-Choices icon for online advertising. Group Location Network Advertising Initiative United States Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) United States European Digital Advertising Alliance Europe Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada Canada ....I clicked OPTED OUT FOR NAI on their link http://www.networkadvertising.org/ ...I clicked OPTED OUT FOR DAA on their link http://www.aboutads.info/ ...I clicked PROTECT MY CHOICES and downloaded the app. These 1st 2 links used to have the same trouble and didn't retain ANYTHING and wouldn't re OPT-OUT ANY UNTIL THEY WERE SATIATED - saying I didn't have 3rd party cookies allowed when I did - this took hours. I sent numerous trouble reports to them that they ignored - then I think I sent one to Firefox and it is much better but still not completely right. Today DAA retains 106 out of 122 and if I repeatedly RE-OPT-OUT successively I can get it to 121 out of 122 - never completely. (currently the one not taking is Accuen Inc. but it changes periodically - makes me think they set one up to take my info and then share it with all of them - lol )
Same for NAI currently I started with 94 out of 96 - next re-OPTED-OUT got it to 95 out of 96 and no further and same co. Accuen Inc (accuenmedia.com ) wouldn't update.
NOTE: I was copy/pasting the list of NON-OPT-OUT'S to them and my own document file to try and find trends/problems...now NAI programmers protected the list from being able to be COPIED AND PASTED!!! That's the opposite of being open and interested in making this work, right? Why would they want to allow us to OPT-OUT of their criminal espionage behavior...RIGHT? (lol) FYI: I recorded that the big one that was always retained before this one was...MEDIA MATH INC.
MANY Opt-outs would drop off while on-line and ALL would drop-off once logged-off. Now it's retaining most once logged off - but it hasn't been long enough to tell if they'll fall back into their bad habits as they've done before... This has been going on forever for me - I've been reporting this malfunction since 2013.
Of course I downloaded PROTECT MY CHOICES FOR FIREFOX via NAI AND DAA'S links ...http://www.aboutads.info/PMC#protect-your-choices-for-firefox ............they both go to the same place???.....PROTECT MY CHOICES http://www.aboutads.info/plugin/install/firefox....that seems odd...it's as if they are the same entity then. ABOUTADS is DAA'S WEBSITE. NAI'S IS NETWORKADVERTISING.ORG so why would NAI use DAA'S PROTECT MY CHOICES app?
Lastely, I also requested that the COOKIES NAMES BE UNIFORMLY IDENTIFIABLE. All the OPT-OUT COOKIES that are to be forevermore retained on my computer and that I am to trust the EVERY FUNCTION OF - well they all have different COOKIE NAMES!! Most of the names you can not tell that they are OPT-OUT COOKIES!! - SO NOWWW They have created another problem. We can no longer just "DELETE ALL COOKIES". PLUS, we can no longer go through our cookies and delete individual ones that snuck through. Every one of the OPT-OUT COOKIES SHOULD SAY "OPT-OUT" IWITHIN THEIR NAME OF THEIR COOKIE - PERIOD. RIGHT? (LOL) For real. Why was this mess was allowed?
REALLY IN MY OPINION THESE COMPANIES SHOULD BE BLOCKED AT THE LOCAL PHONE COMPANIES LEVEL - IN OUR SERVERS. We should not have to deal with them. Same thing with viruses, malware and such beasts. But I digress.
In summary: 1.)Google Analytics OPT-OUT Browser Add-on 0.9.6 doesn't retain OPT-OUT settings 2.) JAVA refuses to create updates for WinXP/FireFox/PaleMoon. 3.) DAA & NAI still don't retain ALL OPT-OUT settings and never completely OPT-OUT all companies. 4.) OPT-OUT cookies should be uniformly names with the words OPT-OUT in their titles. 5.) Ad Block Plus 25.6.7 doesn't work for Pale Moon and there is no alternative - (didn't work great in FireFox)
Right now I'm mainly interested in #1)retaining my GOOGLE OPT-OUTS while on line AND while logged off since it is attacking my computer and steeling all the speed until it freezes my keyboard.
Currently I am trying to remember to run through 3. OPT-OUTS every time I log on.
Thanks so much!

Firefox asked if I would like to "refresh" Firefox in order to speed things up. I chose to "refresh", however the "refresh" process ruined my desktop documents and the documents in the "my documents" file. Firefox put all of my documents into one enormous file and called it "Old Firefox". Now there is no way to open any single file and the huge composite mix cannot be opened at all. In addition, Firefox messed up my desktop files that I was previously working on, and scattered them around. When I tried to put the desktop file icons in order again, they moved as one enormous unit and could not be moved individually. This is a disaster for me and I hope it can be fixed. Thank you.

On several websites that I visit regularly (e.g. Autosport.com) Fiefox will not display text whilst other browsers do. This is very frustrating because I much prefer Firefox! I have screenshots of Firefox v IE but apparently I can't post them until I have a received a reply.

I have noticed recently that several ports associated with Firefox remain open when the Firefox browser is closed. The number of open ports increases each time Firefox is opened and I have seen that the number of open ports has reached to more than 1,000 open ports at a time. The majority of the open ports are outbound TCP using port 443 and I also note a sustained increase in the network traffic after Firefox is closed.
I have observed ports opened by the Explorer browser and noted that all of the ports opened with Explorer close when the Explorer browser is closed. The Firefox ports remain open when the browser is closed.
Questions: - Should all open ports associated with an open Firefox browser close when the Firefox browser is closed? - Does Firefox have a setting that closes all open ports when the Firefox browser is closed? - Does XP have a setting that will close all open ports associated with Firefox when Firefox is closed? - Should I have security concerns about the accumulating open ports and increased network activity when using Firefox?

I've got both Apache services running with my XP WAMP setup (with Wordpress installed in C:\wordpress). The WAMP icon turns to green when I click on start WampServer. If I click on the Localhost option, I get the 'It works!' response every time, no problem.
When I click on phpMyAdmin option, however, I always get the dreaded '404 Not Found' error message. My efforts via YouTube videos regarding this problem helped me get rid of the hash tag in the 'mod_rewrite' line of the htpd.conf file. I can't seem to get any further via the YouTube videos. Hate to be a haunt, but can anyone help me with this one? WAMP is installed in my C:\wamp folder, if that's helpful.

Just a Suggestion: that a "Chrome-Tab" add-on be made available.
i.e.: ability to open Google Chrome inside Firefox in the same way that "IE TAB" allows InternetExplorer to be opened in a Firefox tab.

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 36.0 on my XP SP3 computer. As soon as the program starts, my firewall alerts me the Firefox is making an outgoing UDP call to 188.8.131.52, port 1900. I deny it and it immediately pops up again. The second time I deny it, it stops for a while and then after about a minute or so, it repeats the process. I made a rule to block the calls. Does anybody know what's going on here? According to my research, 184.108.40.206, port 1900 is the IPv4 multicast address implemented through Universal Plug and Play. Why would Firefox now need to be calling that local address? Is there something I can disable in Options to stop Firefox from making those calls? I try to minimize the number of rules my firewall has to use whenever possible.
