    You might aswell teach her what to do if its blocking something (click Exclude on the pop up)
    VS was removed already. :( But I will, next time. (y)

    I think some users forget this --> The basic operating principle with VS is: If VS blocks something you're trying to run, then allow it. If you get an alert and you're not trying to run anything, forget it and let VS block it.
    You're absolutely right buddy.

    Only thing I would take when taking a glance at your extensions, I would say Bitdefender Trafficlight is not really that good, I would change this to Emsisoft Browser Security & remove HTTPS Everywhere - please note these changes are optional and you're welcome to disagree with me.

    Other than the above, good config, thanks for sharing.

    @LDogg Good to see you again (y) Please have a look at @Evjl's Rain 's latest tests and test yourself.
    Emsisoft's extension is not that good anymore, but Bitdefender TrafficLight actually is.
    Agree with the ditching of HTTPS Everywhere.

    I think TrafficLight is still pretty solid. I'll stick to it. ;) Thank you, too.

    I certainly will have a look, and great to see you too buddy! Had a baby so being active is quite the struggle, so is free time currently.
