Description

I recently installed the avast! Online Security plug-in for Chrome, and have noticed a periodic "Extension error" alert. The details provided by Chrome in my plug-in list, under HTTPS Anywhere (2014.6.26) are:

"Warning: This extension failed to redirect a network request to https://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js because another extension (avast! Online Security) redirected it to chrome-extension://gomekmidlodglbbmalcneegieacbdmki/common/mocks/ga.js."

I have "Web Tracking blocked" enabled in my avast! settings, and was told by avast tech support to either disable this feature or disable HTTPS Anywhere. Is it possible to add an exception so I can both block analytics with avast and continue to use HTTPS Anywhere without constantly throwing up an error?
