Your DownThemAll! and Browser Version and Language and Operating System

Windows 10, Waterfox 54

Expected Behavior

Disable DTA whenever a specified URL is accessed.

Actual Behavior

Facebook slows down when continuously scrolling through old posts. Eventually the browser hangs and has to be restarted. Since blacklisting the site on "Video Download Helper" performance has improved dramatically. When on Facebook DTA is sniffing and listing all of the media it's configured for; the list gets quite large. Similar behavior is exhibited on Linkedin. I have no intention of downloading anything from social media sites; this would be a "nice to have" feature.

Steps To Reproduce

Go to Facebook and scroll back a few days.
