Great with the new update - A lot smoother now :smiley:

I have some problems though:

  1. Services like Proton VPN and Protonmail Bridge doesn’t work with Ghostery Midnight. The services think the connection is insecure. If I want to use their services then I have do disable Midnight…
  2. When Ghostery turns on at startup and there isn’t an internet-connection, it won’t connect (obsessively). But it would be nice if it could automatically reconnect, when interconnection is established.
  3. I can’t turn on the option for Midnight to start in minimized mode.

Hi @User6 - Thanks so much for the feedback! Good news, the start minimized setting is in our newest update, v 1.3.1 release. I’ll also let the development team know about the issues with Protonmail bridge/vpn.

As far as reconnecting when no internet connection is available, it should try again about every minute. Is this not happening for you or are you thinking we be checking more frequently?
