Access the iTunes Music Store with Privoxy active Apps

I tried to buy some songs from the Apple Music Store for the first time. Because I have a dialup connection, I chose to use the shopping cart feature. Instead of testing it out with one or two songs, I loaded my cart up with 54 songs. When I went to 'Buy Now,' it appeared to hang on the first download, but I left it alone just in case. After dozens of minutes, it started cycling through one song after another until all 54 were off the list. But nothing I had purchased was in my library.

After much research and an email to Apple, I got the downloads to work by turning off Privoxy. No big deal, but I like to leave it on. After more web digging, I found a hint about listening to previews with Privoxy enabled. On a hunch, I applied that hint, and now I can download music with Privoxy still running!

Just add the -filter {demoronizer} action for URL pattern .apple.com/Music to your user.action file, and you'll be good to go!

Turning off demoronizer against some other matches may other odd problems. You might want to disable it for Software Update or .ico files if you have an older filter file and odd problems with Software Update or website icons.
