I enjoy using Umatrix and Ublock, but run into the following problem. I use quite restrictive settings and then manually allow certain elements on certain sites. However, I notice that these "settings" sometimes get lost, perhaps when cache or so gets cleaned up (by ccleaner, for example). Anyway, that is all fine, as long as I am able to reload a settings file with all my settings. I don't know if it is possible to make such a file, so I need to re-do all of my settings frequently. This is annoying and takes unnecessary time. Is it possible to (incrementally) save the various settings I have for the various websites I use? I would like to be able to add new websites to it as I go along. Is that a feature I have been overlooking?

(my main browser is Chrome, so if it works here and nowhere else, it would still be useful progress)

  • Clearing cache or cookies certainly doesn't remove configuration settings for the addons. Are you running uBlock Origin or uBlock? Origin is the maintained version, I should have asked that right away. – user598527 Feb 23 '17 at 19:08
  • for uBlock I have the one from ublock.org, version – Steve G. Jones Feb 25 '17 at 20:02
  • Your fork isn't maintained anymore. uBlock Origin is also by the original developer, please install from your browser addon store. – user598527 Mar 9 '17 at 17:26

The uMatrix version (1.3.16) I use in Firefox has an option in its settings like (translated from German):

☑ Enable support for saving in the cloud

  • Do you know if this option allows the setting to be also applied on all devices once logged in with a firefox account ? – m.raynal Jan 17 '20 at 22:30
  • @m.raynal I don't know. I don't use one. But you could try and add that info to my answer. – Gerold Broser Jan 18 '20 at 8:51
