I have recently switched from using AdBlock Plus to uBlock Origin Ad blocker in Firefox as it requires less memory (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/uBlock-vs.-ABP:-efficiency-compared).
Although uBlock Origin presents itself not only as an Ad blocker, but a wide-spectrum blocker (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock), I would like to enable Google Analytics tracking on all websites (still having other tracking systems disabled) to be able to debug my Google Analytics settings.
Google Analytics is present in a lot of filters uBlock Origin uses, so I believe the easiest solution would be to whitelist the domains Google Analytics uses:
To do that I have enabled Advanced User settings which should enable Dynamic Filtering (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Dynamic-filtering).
Then in My Rules I have added these rules:
* analytics.google.com * allow * google-analytics.com * allow * googletagmanager.com * allow
And I have made them Permanent.
But the Google Analytics is still blocked when looking into the Real-Time overview on one of my websites. What am I doing wrong?
EDIT: After changing the domain to the correct
google-analytics.com as @R.Hill suggested in the comment it works!
I have corrected the domain also in the original answer for everyone else to not be misled.
One more question. When looking into the Network panel displaying activity for a blank HTML page with only Google Analytics installed, there is also a request to
stats.g.doubleclick.net. What is this request used for? Do I need to enable also this domain to be able to fully debug the Google Analytics settings?
