When the user is on a page like this, on desktop we don't show https://content-track-digest256.dummytracker.org in the list of allowed tracking content because of this code whereas on mobile this same logic doesn't exist currently and is very difficult to implement because the URL classifier service isn't exposed by the GV API.

It would be nice to move this logic to Gecko instead so that GV gets to use it automatically.
