Tracking Requests not being blocked as per settings
Although I have my Browser Privacy / Enhanced Tracking Protctions setting at "STRICT": "Stronger protection but may cause some sites or content to break" and with a "Heads up!" warning that states: "This setting may cause some websites to not display content or work correctly" -- I chose to enact it, anyway, knowing taking this informed risk.
However, on a site that I just visited, I received a message (from clicking on the little duck icon) that stated: "To prevent site breakage, we didn't lock ANY companies from loading tracking requests on this page". Also, "The following third-party domains' request were loaded. If a company's requests are loaded, it can allow them to profile you, though our other web tracking potections still apply."; then listed all of the companies that were allowed to profile/track me, one that included Google. There were 8 different companies, some with more than one address!
What is the point of giving us that option if you aren't going to acknowledge or respect it?

A little duck icon says that? It's not our icon.
Can you provide more details to reproduce this issue?
That is likely about the DuckDuckGo PE extension, so you need to take this to their support if it doesn't work as expected.
But shouldn't Firefox / Mozilla be over them and be in control of this?
Should be, that's why I don't think that this warning is correct.
