I use Privacy Badger with the latest version of FF on a Windows 7

badly behaving sites are similarly showing no trackers. So my question:
Is the reason for this cosmic observation

1. Google and others have reformed;
2. Google and others have found ways to defeat Privacy Badger; or
3. Currently released Privacy Badger has serious bugs.

I hope this is the right group for this question.

Do you have any other extensions that also block trackers, such as Ghostery, Disconnect.... It's a possibility that there are blocking the trackers before Privacy Badger kicks in so it doesn't see any.

No I don't. In addition to Privacy Badger I only load "Fakespot" which is used to evaluate review quality on Amazon products. Theme is just the builtin stuff that comes with FF and only the three plugins that FF includes.
