AntiTrack blocking one particular website
« on: May 27, 2022, 04:08:16 PM »
AntiTrack silently blocks this website: hxtps://amb.org - meaning that it never responds to the browser request and the browser eventually times out.

If I uncheck "Enable HTTPS Filtering" I can reach the website. This is on macOS - both Chrome and Safari are affected.

Mac is running Big Sur 11.6.6. Chrome and Safari are the latest versions.

Any reason this should happen?

Yes - that fixed it. Thanks very much. I have to say, this is pretty non-obvious! It would be helpful if AntiTrack provided some meaningful messages when it does the cookie clearing (other than fingerprint changed).
