Re: How to block google-analytics

Hi,

May I make an observation about adding:
127.0.0.1 ssl.google-analytics.com
 

I see in the MVPS HOSTS file that it is commented out:
# 127.0.0.1  ssl.google-analytics.com #[disabled = Firefox issues]
 

I'm just posting this as an observation and not as a recommendation. I don't know the reasons behind it and have to leave that discussion to others.

I don't know why "MVPS" comments out that Firefox entry.
Presumably due to feedback from Moz users saying this entry prevents from reaching some sites.

You can comment in and out sites via notepad as deemed necessary over time with your Browsing based on the sites you visit.

Many more experienced using non-standard Hosts file users maintain their own lists that they comment in at the bottom of the file at every release.
