Changes between Initial Version and Version 6 of Ticket #7302

03/14/2019 07:36:59 PM (12 months ago)

I updated the ticket description to reflect what has been agreed on so far but also added a third state to reflect whether the filter list is disabled to detect whether the filter list is in an invalid state.

Along those lines, we could also add further states, if there's any piece of information related to this filter list we're interested in, without increasing the size of the uninstall URL.


  • List is installed and enabled but it has always failed to download so far
  • Acceptable Ads without third-party tracking list is installed, enabled, etc.

Presumably, however, the three states should be sufficient for now.

@erezson Do you agree with this assessment? If so, can you confirm that the Acceptable Ads without third-party tracking list should not be considered when determining whether a user has opted-in/out of Acceptable Ads? Otherwise we'll need to agree on how to represent that information without making it too hard to understand (i.e. intransparent) for users.

e.g. Representing AA being installed and enabled and AA3p being installed but disabled:

  • In binary: aa=e (i.e. 1110 in hexadecimal)
  • In decimal: aa=12
