tfd.com and thefreedictionary.com (same site) will not display the audio icons that let you hear the word unless ad muncher is completely disabled.

it's not missing in any browser on my end so it's down to your custom settings.

Ok I figured it out. It was the option 'Prevent sites bookmarking themselves' in Options--Filtering that was causing the problem. I mistakenly thought the Filtering options only worked if the Default Filters options were enabled ('Use these filters' and 'Still use popup-related filters').

Would it be too much trouble to see what your custom settings are for Ad Muncher so I can set mine to the same? I figure you would have the optimal settings picked out. I just check things that seem like they are useful and am probably setting Ad Muncher to act too aggressively. I was puzzled as to why no pictures would load on IMDB until I realize the option 'Change referrer field' was causing it. Now I'm not sure what I should or shouldn't check in the Options tab.

Additionally, I think it'd be better if we could also enable/disable individual rows in My Filters instead of only enabling/disabling the whole list.

The simple rule to follow is don't enable anything unless it's solving a problem or something you need. :)
