During a typical day of browsing, I run accross many sites which do not work with the default shields settings. Because the shields are set by domain name, disabling shields at the login page is often not enough to get a successful login. This happens even with high profile services such as the AWS management console or my university’s Gmail portal.
So when this happens I have the option of changing the default shield settings, or switching browsers. If I switch browsers it is often for the rest of the day, which means I am not benefiting from shields at all the other sites I visit, and my data for publisher payments becomes incomplete.
My solution of choice would be an option for something like “New Tab with Shields Down”. Maybe the shield settings could even be customizable instead of simply off, but tied to the tab rather than the domain. That way I can easily log in to frustrating sites without switching browsers. Any thoughts?
