I’ve just installed Pi-hole and have to say it looks pretty amazing. One thing I don’t quite understand though. I have various browser extensions installed, Privacy Badger, Adblock, and Ghostery.
While browsing around and testing things I can see on the Pi-hole dashboard that it’s working, blocking lots of stuff. I still have my browser extensions enabled and they are also reporting that they are blocking trackers and stuff.
For instance, I visited cnn.com, then clicked on Privacy Badger to see that it has blocked the domain c.amazon-adsystem.com. When I paste this domain into the search box at http://my-pi-hole/admin/queries.php it comes up as blocked - showing “Blocked (gravity)”. If it’s truly blocked by the Pi-hole then why does it even show up in Privacy Badger?
I guess I was just expecting that particular domain to not show up at all in my extensions.
What am I missing here?
