Comment (by LabraTor):


 Regarding the FF-inbuilt solution with the disconnect lists, I don't see a
 problem if a website blocks ad-/tracking-blocking. TBB users then can
 either avoid the website or use a workaround such as archiving the website
 and then view the archived version. Obviously, a temporary white-listing
 of anti-adblocking websites until a reset would be an option too but
 temporarily reduce anonymity.

 You're right about strictly resetting any uBo modifications, if possible
 at all. This is after all how it is done with Tails. I consider it
 advantageous to merge the TBB and Tails anonymity groups and therefore
 favor the uBo approach.
