Well first test: javascript turned off = pass, without nope
Second: Comodo dragon does have this as built in feature

Can you advice how to pass first test? Privacy possum, tunnelbear, trace , canvasdefender... noone of them work
Are you using some kind of client?
I don't have java turned off i simple use WebApi manager.

its anti adblock killer for ublock origin, nano adblocker and tunnelbear

Nano Defender
Oh thanks. :D Done that and its gone(y)


First: Nope, and don't know why. My Canvas fingerprint changes every 5min together with my user agent, btw. I guess the site doesn't know that.
Second: Yes, my referrer is always the "same domain". Like here it is
Code:
https://www.whatismyreferer.com/
and not where I actually come from.

EDIT: And what setting does that? Canvas Element? If you block canvas totally its like you have just a different fingerprint attached to you. EDIT: That's why I let mine be changed every 5min.

All i can tell you champ is that i didn't configure my extensions to block 1 item, i look at security holistically not in parts so my success may have came by the way i see things no 1 person alike, I use ublock,TunnelBear Blocker & WebApi Manager,my success with what i use will be different to what any other person use because i configured mine to what I need, your needs & extensions will highly and likely be different.

You test your referer at post #209 above and NOT at whatsmyreferer.com

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. :unsure:
Did you misunderstood my post? I tested on What is my Referer? and the result is always the same domain. That is deliberate. If I would be on google the referrer would be "google", even if I clicked a link on a different site to get there.

The referer test here at malwaretips.com is to test where you are coming from. If you test it then you should see hxxps://www.malwaretips.com if you did not hide the referer. If you hide/obfuscate/replaced with another referer then it'll show/not show accordingly

Just go to the post #209 above and click on the test my referer link and see the result

Ok now I know. You misunderstood me. :oops: (I'm pretty sure its my bad english)
The referrer is ALWAYS the page that is currently open or asking for it. This is a feature of ScriptSafe.
