Online Privacy 1.5 privacypro@mybestprivacy.com

Appears to hijack user's Home page via redirects. 

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229080
The add-on mentioned does not make any changes to the home page. It does send GA tracking events on install, update, and in regular intervals and misleads with a different description.

Tyler, can you confirm the report that this add-on, or others mentioned in the thread, actually change the user's home page via redirects?

Actually, it seems version 1.5 is the offending one. Double checking.
Block has been staged, Andreas can you review?

Philipp, most of the patterns don't match because of the double-escaped dots, which means you escaped the backslash instead of the dot.

Ugh, my bad, the pattern was correct, but kinto itself was escaping it in the view.

Jorge, I re-staged the block, can you please review and push?
