Every check slows you down. Leave defaults.

If unchecked you will see blank spaces where ads or other blocked content would have been. I leave it unchecked in order to maintain page layout. It does not make any functional difference.

I check that just to get a sense of how "blocked" any given page is. Eg., if some function of the site is not working and the number of blocked items is large, I might presume the lack of function to be attributable to a blocked script.

This very page at BITOG indicates "7" elements are blocked for me.

I check this so when there is something on a page that I want blocked I can simply right click that element and block it.

I leave unchecked for the once in a blue moon I care about the content of a tooltip. Tooltips are really not invasive.

I leave unchecked to maintain the site's aesthetic intention.

This will back up your settings to a cloud storage account. I don't bother.

I leave this unchecked because pre-fetching data can speed up navigation sometimes. Having a site that knows who you are pre-fetching data may avail some of your information to the parties from whom the data is being fetched, however.

I check this; as someone who from time to time has to be intentionally vague about my whereabouts in order to gain access to U.S.-only content.

This is probably harmless to check and one day you may want to treat one site differently than some others.

I am a web developer and it irks me that people can mess with my layouts and designs. This really does not play into privacy but *might* save you some bandwidth; with bandwidth being the last thing most people in the industrialized world ever have to worry about.

Again, mostly to save bandwidth. I would expect a majority of these elements to be media.

Remote fonts do not take up much bandwidth and present zero security or privacy risk. If anyone chose to use a remote font it is because they feel that font is integral to the look-and-feel of their site. I like to respect that.

I don't check this. https://www.ghacks.net/2017/10/19/ublock-criticized-for-blocking-csp/
