I was having some issue not seeing my filter taking effect on webpages.

I wanted to test my filters on localhost with a simple html file, so I set up a web server.

Here is my log, copy/pasted from the privoxy window
http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=pUw6gZMV

I enabled the logfile directive and all debug directives to get that log.

this in my user filter file
FILTER: GA AG
s/.*/a/g

this is in my actions file
{ +FILTER{GA} }
.co.uk
.com
127.0.0.1:6789
127.0.0.1

I accessed the webpage, it doesn't have any html tags in it it's just a few characters, I hoped for it to be overwritten. But it didn't work.

And in the log, Strangely, I don't see any mention of my filters.

    i'm using privoxy 3.0.16 windows xp
    though I doubt the problem is from me not using the latest version. 'cos i'd expect this to work with this version too.
