Ublock origin wantts IP permission

Kuphostiwe

Why would Ublock origin want permission to access my IP address ? As a blocker it should block incoming trackers whether my IP is my public or VPN.

I have performed a refresh Firefox and reinstalled Ublock origin and I did not get the request for IP permission. This is version 1.25

I tried removing and adding ublock origin on another workstation and it ran the March-2020 1.25 version without requesting permission.

Firefox no longer asks for this specific permission because it is confusing and this is only about getting access to the IP of the websites you visit and not about your own IP as people might think. UBO has no need to access your IP and doesn't do that. This is about getting access to the IP of the visited website to make it possible to see if you visit a domain in the same IP range, but with a different hostname.
