On some sites Disconnect will not appear after clicking the icon. And with the lengthy delay in any updates, I am starting to feel like I'm being played.

Just download the extension, and I'm amazed at all the stuff these websites are throwing at my PC. I have an adblock but this extension kills so much more. When I jump on my PC in the morning, I always scroll through Yahoo.com articles to see what's happening in the world. Doing that today, Adblock Plus killed killed 16 items and Disconnect killed over 600. Of that 38 were analytics request and 620 was content blocking from a site called Brightcove (https://www.brightcove.com/en/).

Unfortunately, Disconnect hasn't been updated in 3 years, and now breaks other extensions using globalPrivacyControl.
