What is the "Canvas Blocker (fingerprint protect)" extension?
This extension alters the reported GEO location by your browser. You can provide your custom latitude and longitude to any website to improve privacy or get localized data from a custom location. This extension is also useful if you have a SOCKS proxy on your browser to have a consistent IP address with the GEO data. Read more here.
How can I disable this extension?
Normally there is no need for the extension to be disabled (if you find a case please report in the review section). So there is no toolbar button for toggling the enabling state of the add-on! If for any reason you would like to temporarily disable the extension, go to the add-on manager for your browser and press disable button. Then refresh the tab to refresh the server code. Make sure to re-enable the extension later on to prevent leaking.

What are the differences between this extension and other similar ones?
The method to manipulate internal functions need to be written with extra care to make sure the code is not affecting the page performance. This extension is written carefully by considering two important facts: 1. Do not slow down the borwser by applying most of the code when only needed. 2. Prevent fingerprint for all frames so that there would be no other ways to generate a unique key even by using new frame technice.
Can I disable the extension on a website?
As of version 0.1.2, you can disable this extension on specified hostnames. Either open the website in a browser tab and right-click on the page action's button and select "Disable Fingerprinting" entry or directly insert the hostnames on the options page of the extension.
I like to get notified when fingerprinting is detected, however, I want to disable this option on a few websites. Is it possible?
Yes, on a website that you don't want to get notifications, right-click on the browser action button and select "Disable Notification" entry. You can directly add the hostname to the options page too. If you need to remove a hostname from this list, simply remove it from the options page and press the "Save" button.
