Have any tips or guidelines for newbies wanting to use uMatrix?

I want to start using uMatrix, but I'm a little nervous since I'm not as tech savvy as others are.

Even if you know of a handy online guide it would be much appreciated.

EDIT: a word

    Cloudflare is usually required to be allowed, and if a site needs a recaptcha you will need to allow google.com then refresh, then find the frame that is being blocked and allow it.

      If I run into a problem couldn't I just temporarily disable the uMatrix add-on until I can figure out another method?

        Yes, you can also just click the big "power button" in uMatrix (the leftmost button), which temporarily disables uMatrix completely on the site you're on.
