I'm pretty sure that the Add-ons are blocking such data miners, especially Better Privacy.
Because I lack the technical language I tend to react a bit and just undo the add-ons and
then want nothing more to do with keeping her computer safe. That's not totally
satisfactory but I get tired of trying to explain and justify each step ... often because i researched it
myself ages ago and forget the details.
