There's really no need to use both Privacy Badger and Disconnect as they both do pretty much the same thing. I'd ditch them both and just use uBlock Origin with the "Privacy" filter lists enabled.

I thought Disconnect was based on preexisting lists and Privacy Badger automatically worked out which sites seemed to be setting cookies and using them for tracking across sites. I'll need to look into it more, thanks.

You're correct. I'm not sure where people get this idea that Privacy Badger's supposed "lists" are included in uBlock, but I've seen it around here a lot. Personally I use both.
