Thank you for the lesson. I do know it. I have many IT certifications:
CompTIA A+, Network, Security+, Cloud
(ISC)2 CISSP CBK
BSD, VM Ware, Ubuntu Certified Professional
I admitted that I made a mistake in confusing HTTPS and TLS.
Ghostery and BetterPrivacy do allow me to delete LSOs and Flash cookies on demand or when I quit Mozilla Firefox, but Ghostery has its own online databases for cookies and 3pes which it automatically updates and maintains. This helps me to filter out new elements automatically across a wider expanse of the Internet. Better Privacy allows me to override the default Mozilla Firefox method of handling cookies altogether and it's for this specific reason that I chose to add it and I use it.
I am happy to report that I am not a high value target of an advanced persistent threat by anyone in this world who is trying to attack me. Perhaps that itself is the best security feature in my favor right now.
