Hi Jor, I decided to try out your filters to see what some of you
real expert filter writers were doing (rather than my hacked-up
version of the original Config file).

I ran into one problem that I'm curious whether you see as well.
If I go to yahoo groups and read messages, when I hit one of
the messages where yahoo does the "interrupt" thing to serve up
a page of ads, I end up with an infinite loop happening between
the browser and the server. It appears that it is caused by having
both the Yahoo relocator and the Never accept bugged cookies
Header filters enabled. Does this happen for you as well?

One other thing I noticed, the Kill Ad Tables filter removes
the main site navigation menu from http://www.space.com/
I haven't had time yet to investigate, but I thought I'd point out
that site to you as it is one that I've always had trouble trying
to remove ads from, but yet not remove important stuff!

Yes, I get the Yahoo problem as well, the solution is to add
URL = "(^$LST(AllowCookie))"
to the filter. An oversight of mine left that out.

As for the ad tables problem, I know this filter can be too aggressive. The solution is to add the site to the SkipTables blocklist

Hi. Your filter is great. Just one quip (a personal preference for me). How do I go about modifying the link settings. I don't want the strikethrough/purple on already visited links; I just want it purple (actually, how do i revert back to the original IE link settings? i'm so used to those). Can't seem to find where this setting is (yeah, i'm a newbie).

Hi, welcome to the forum

The link settings are in Prox.css (in the HTML folder)

If you know some CSS, you can alter the link colouring yourself, otherwise just download this file, and overwrite your current prox.css. All link styling (except mark target=new) is commented out in there, so your normal settings will return.

Is there a way to get just one specific URL to use a proxy and all others to just connect directly?

Sure, use a filter like
[Blocklists]
List.UseProxy = "..ListsUse Proxy.txt"

[HTTP headers]
In = FALSE
Out = TRUE
Key = "URL: Use proxy (Out)"
URL = "$LST(UseProxy)$USEPROXY(1)"

Place the URL to be filtered in a blocklist called UseProxy (if you save the example above as mergme.cfg, and merge config sets, just create a new textfile called 'Use Proxy.txt' inside the Lists folder, and put the URL in there.)

Jor: I've been noticing that occasionally on my.yahoo.com some partial
ads would sneak through and they always contained a form element. The
action attribute of the form didn't match anything in AdList, so the
Kill Ad Forms filter never applied. But inside the form were images
from sites that were on the AdList, so the Kill Ad Images filter would
remove them. I ended up defining a new filter to kill Forms containing
an image on the AdList, like this:

[Patterns]
Name = "Kill ad forms (2)"
Active = TRUE
URL = "$TYPE(htm)"
Bounds = "$NEST(<form,</form>)"
Limit = 4096
Match = "*<(i(mg|nput))*://($LST(AdList))2*"
Replace = "<span class="prox" kill="Form" detail="2" reason="9">"
          "</span>"

hey Jor,
I really like your config set so far.  I just had a few things I wish I could change because I don't prefer it exactly like that.  Could you tell me how I could go about changing it.  I like the way you have that box thing when you go over a link.  But I really don't like how it crosses the links that you have already went to out.  How can i disable this?  

Also I like it to block ads without showing me on the page that it it blocked them.  How do I go about removing the labels on the pages that show the ads were removed from there and which type of ad it was, etc.

Its really great so far, I just prefer mine not to show all that.  Thanks in advance.   Bobby

I've decided to do a complete update of my config set, this is the set as I am using it now. It is designed for browsers like Opera and Mozilla, that have a near-complete implementation of the W3C and ECMA standards. MSIE usage is limited.

Many filters are either by someone else on this forum (whenever I remembered, I mentioned it in the blockfiles used), modified versions of them, or filters inspired by them. Writing and maintaining good Proxomitron filters is a team effort as far as I am concerned

Thanks go out to (in no particular order) Arne, sidki3003, JakBeNymble, altosax, JD5000, hpguru, cj, Zhen-Xjell, Mona, and probably many others who have either given direct input for my filters, or who have designed filters I got many good ideas from. Also special thanks to Scott R. Lemmon, for designing Proxomitron, and for giving such good support whenever needed

The set itself:
Attachment: jor's-config.zip   99,98?KB

Install by unzipping into your Prox folder. Make a backup of your /lists first!
Also note killed.html will be altered in the HTML folder, so make a backup.

By default all 'kills' are hidden, to enable display, edit prox.css: scroll all the way down, to the '/* Quick hack to toggle kill display  */'. Comment out 'display: none !important;', and comment 'display: block !important;' to toggle display of kills.


---
I've started to work on some documentation of all filters, but that is
extremely painstaking work, and therefore I've not yet gotten to a releasable version.

Some notes on the filters used:
[HTTP Headers]: Header filters
    Cache filters:
    • Cache-Control: Always cache (in)
    • ETag: Always cache (in)
    • Expires: Always cache (in)
    • If-Modified-Since: Always reload pages (Out)
    • If-None-Match: Always reload pages (Out)
    • Pragma: Always Cache/Don't Reload (Out + In)
    • Vary: Always Cache (in)


All these filters have the same purpose: they allow your browser to control caching again. All filters take the list AllowCacheControl into account, to allow for sites where cache control is enabled.

    • Connection: Close all connections (In + Out)

A filter disabled by default, it allows for closing all Prox connections quickly. In a way, this disables the most easily corrupted HTTP/1.1 function without needing to edit your browser settings.

    • Content-Type: Fix MIME types (In)

A highly modified version of Paul Rupe's original filter. Just about every content type I've encountered that is done wrong sometimes is in there.

    Cookie filters:
    • Cookie2: Kill unwanted cookies (out)
    • Cookie: Fool AdBuster sites (out)
    • Cookie: Kill unwanted cookies (out)
    • Set-Cookie: Never accept bugged cookies (In)
    • Set-Cookie: Never accept unwanted cookies (In)


All cookie filters use the AllowCookie list. They effecively block all not-needed cookies, and also strip bugged cookies, and help in fooling the ad busters.

    Privacy filters:
    • Forwarded: (out)
    • From: (Out)
    • P3P: Platform for Privacy Preferences (In)
    • Pragma: Block WiMP GUID Reporting (Out)
    • Referer: Fake referrer info (Out)
    • Referer: Randomize referrer info (Out)
    • Referer: Remove URL Commands and Prefix (out)
    • VIA: (out)
    • X-Forwarded-For: (out)
    • X-Kazaa-* [out]


This set of filters helps in protect your privacy online. Special note for the referer filters: 'Randomize referrer info' is ONLY called when opening a page in a new browser window, or when typing the URL manually -- not when following an in-site link. The 'Fake referrer info' filter is the one usually called, this helps view most if not all pages. The third one is privacy-related.

    URL Killers
    • URL-Killer: Kill script URL exploits
    • URL-Killer: kill-a-URL (out)


I believe these need no explanation.

    URL Filters
    • URL: Alias Redirector (Out)
    • URL: No proxy (Out)
    • URL: Un-Prefixer (Out)


Alias redirector is for the Jumplist. No Proxy allows for a list of sites that always bypass the Proxy: the NoProxy list is used. The un-prefixer helps stop some prefixing by sites (far from perfect).

    User Agents
    • User-Agent: Dumb Sites *


All these filters form one group, and should be used together with the Dumb Sites web filters. Their purpose is to fool certain malicious sites into letting you use your browser to access them, by altering the UA string. Note that only the headers will work in MSIE!

[Patterns]: Web Filters
(Documentation to be done. For now please ask if clarification is needed. Some are documented above in this thread).

Hey now, I see some filters I already like.

BTW, you might want to re-eanble "Run Proxomitron as a systray icon", it took me a sec to figure out why it wasn't showing... LoL

Ah, that's what I forgot: stripping the entire 'general' section is the equivalet of setting most of it to false

I'll need to edit the user agent filters anyway...

Please use this file (jor's-config.zip, 61'426 bytes) instead. (I'll try and edit the forum upload version later)

I just realized why my set is so huge -- it's the Proxominati2.gif file of course! I'll try and remember to keep it out of future distro's
