Ghostery finds those but it doesn't detect either Atlas or Omiture at that Microsoft test page (on Fx4) but that is because Proxo has blocked them and gobbled up most of the web bugs also. Ghostery gets the leftovers Proxo doesn't get.

That Microsoft test page tells me how to enable private browsing in Fx. I know how to do that! But private browsing is worthless because the price for it is way too high. You have no History when you do that and in Fx it screws up my superior cookie settings also so I won't ever do it. History is extremely important and Fx keeps History, as of Fx 4, for as long as is possible given the amount of RAM you have. That is wonderful...no expiring history...well, on my current computer it won't expire for about two years because I am limited in the amount of RAM that the motherboard will support. On a new computer, I will have enough RAM that history will never expire. Why does no tracking mean no history? They should not be tied together like that! Nor should cookie management be tied to no tracking either. STUPID. So, I use Proxo and Ghostery instead of worthless "private" browsing.

Yes..well your 'highly configurable' Firefox4 really was not all the good. They might do it this way

»www.firefoxfacts.com/2009/07/01/···and-faq/

But my browser of choice does not.. can you explain how proxo blocked atlas and omiture...a link please as to the method. And when you say ghostery detects those..those what ? and how since you say proxo took care of them first ? all very confusing.
Now ..I thought that in FX5 they made it more configurable..and your versions is no longer supported
