    Self-explanatory. It does the same thing trying to switch to the Advanced Editor. Any ideas?

    EDIT: Fixed itself... somehow.

    I think the insanely high resolution is of greater concern in this case.

    Is the time on your computer set correctly?

    You use uBlock? Cool. I've been using that and uMatrix, which is a beast (and awesome).

    Assman, How do you use uMatrix? What does it do and what does it do for you?
    Edit: I installed it on Firefox and trying it out but find it blocks to much. Do I.. should I configure it in some way?

    It's not for the faint of heart, and I wouldn't recommend anyone just jumping right into it. It blocks all third-party domains by default; it's up to the user to un-break each website. The developer even says point-blank that it's for "advanced users", and yes, you will basically have to configure the fuck out of it. For someone who's been using NoScript and RequestPolicy, it feels like a natural evolution, but if you haven't used anything like that before, it's probably overkill. You could just use it in allow-all mode and only block specific domains and content, but that kind of defeats its innate purpose.

    If you really want to use uMatrix after everything I've just said, read up on the documentation here and here (the latter is actually for HTTP Switchboard, which is discontinued, but uMatrix is built on top of it and, as of now, it has more documentation).

    If you'd rather have something that's more hands-off, try uBlock Origin, which is based on the same code. By default it runs in easy mode where it only uses blacklists and is unlikely to break many sites. It's pretty much a less resource-intensive AdBlock. NoScript is also great but again blocks by default, so you'll have to whitelist certain domains to get many pages working fully.

    I am in fact using and have been using uBlock for a few months because Ghostery I have been using for years wasn't getting the job done anymore especially on Youtube. All on Firefox as Firefox is my go to for media type stuff. You mentioned uMatrix so thought find and try it out. I have never used NoScript and RequestPolicy so I don't know I might continue messing around with uMatrix?
