Malwarebytes Browser Guard doesn't like my.malwarebytes


Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes Browser Guard on my Windows 10 Firefox 76.0.1 shows 17 hits for Ad networks, trackers, malware, and scams, including four for cdn.optimizely.com, eight for www.googletagmanager.com and five for  www.google-analytics.com. Hell, even this forum racks up five for www.googletagmanager.com.

Guess no matter what defenses one tries to put up there's no escaping nosiness.

as test -
Firefox Tracking Protection - Strict
uBlock Origin - 22 filters checked

Does BG detect/block google marketing tags on 'forums.malwarebytes.com' because BG happens to see "googletagmanager" before Firefox & uBlock Origin....or, ....BG is better than Firefox Tracking Protection + uBlock Origin 22 filters.   Maybe, Firefox + uBlock Origin allow "googletagmanager"? 

btw ~ same observation with Edge Tracking Prevention - Strict + uBlock Origin - 22 filters.  

Curious....BG sees "googletagmanager" before Firefox & uBlock Origin..... or ___________?
Thanks

Likely due to the order of web processes being handled.  At the same time, I have not paid attention to the other two blockers.  If their goal is to block trackers, you could probably bet GTM would be blocked there as well.

The Markup Blacklight scan suggests "forum.malwarebytes.com sends information to Alphabet.  
Does a BG tracker detect correspond with a BG tracker block? 
Does a detect always mean a block? 
Might BG detect an already blocked (by other) tracker? 
Does BG only report a tracker that BG actually blocked?
