Are Firefox add-ons (uBlock etc.) ignoring proxy whitelisting when they automaticaly updates filter rules? Observed behavior (example) - using proxy in Firefox with whitelisted easylist.to (network.proxy.no_proxies_on), proxy control panel still shows comunication to easylist.to. Is this somehow on me, or is it a bug?

asked first, got following answer: "uBO just makes a network request to easylist.to, how it's routed beyond making the network request is beyond the control of uBO."

They are doing the blocking or are the issue and refusing to address that. I for one would dump that Addon if that's their reply and find a better blocker that works.

Blocker itselfs afaik works well, i don´t know if its something they do wrong or if Firefox is to blame (or me ofc) - same behavior observed at publicsuffix.org (which is updated directly by browser? - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/61745387/how-does-chrome-or-any-other-browser-use-public-suffix-list ) (proxy whitelist is in following format: .mozilla.net,.mozilla.org,.mozilla.com,.easylist.to,.publicsuffix.org)
