Possibly the best add-on I ever used Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Privacy is key. Ghostery is possibly the best way to protect it online. It's also always great to see who is tracking you.
No way Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
Two reasons to avoid this addon, above all
1. It is impossible to setup the addon without connection to their site
2. Leaks to google
I must admit that this addon, with disabled ghostrank, was quite decent before version 6. But with enabled ghostrank it becomes just another tracker, gathering data even from sites without trackers, i.e. all your browsing data.
It is staggering to recognize that your privacy protection software actually notifies Google, the most offensive, intrusive, privacy violating corp on the planet, of the identifiable information about every user of your product.
Discovering that your browser based configuration program uses fonts.googleapis.com, and by doing so provides Google the IP address of every user using your software to minimize the amount of digital stalking they're subjected to, just goes to show how much Ghostery 6 deserves all the recent 1-star ratings (even if you do delete them on a daily basis).

Jetpack Problems Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Exeptional add-on that give me more control over the contents i want to load\see on a page.
Unfortunately some browsers like PaleMoon, that i use, are removing JetPack for various motives (PM is doing it cause it have lost most of the initial purposes being put in the FF code) and from the next version there will be no way to use Ghostery on PaleMoon.
Can you do something about this like making a working version for Pale Moon or trasforming it in a non-jetpack extension?
If not i will be really sad cause this is a relly great extension and it hurt me see the recension page vandalized as it is, i signalled the most annoying user but i hope something more will be done by Mozilla.
Like it. A LOT! Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
It may slow pages down a teeny bit (NOTE: I have not run any tests, just from general observation, with all its inherent biases), but it is worth it to see the whole list of trackers and turn them all or off as I please.
1 point unhappily deducted from rating because of that observed slowdown, and because I cannot give them a half star rating...
This is about promoting Mozilla, not the whims of any single user Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Bertioo7...AMO is a project that transcends opensource! We encourage individual devs and public firms alike to create addons for Firefox and Thunderbird. Users discriminating against one party over another should be discouraged. Furthermore, ratings (stars) do not matter...the review content does. Do not expect your 3-star review to remain when it continues to discriminate against a party. Again, read the guidelines!
The reason your review has been deleted is it fails our guidelines, which a link is made plainly available on the review page. Your stated "facts" are mere assumptions. Furthermore, Ghostery is known to be proprietary software! This should not affect user reviews one way or another. Please modify your review to reflect these facts.
Anonymoususerreally...Ghostery still stores your settings locally. Creating an account for sync is for your convenience and remains completely voluntary! Please modify your review to reflect this fact.
Theodor...AMO does not employ Addon reviewers or review moderators. This prevents the bias you accuse us of. Neither AMO nor Ghostery whitelist or promote any Google service except in the rare case to prevent site breakage (and even this can be optout if you so prefer!). Furthermore, derogatory language is offensive to our users. Please modify your review to reflect these facts.

Quietly block the trackers Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Take back control.
Annoying popups Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles
It removed the option to control notifications. I don't want popups showing up on my browser all the time on every page I go to.
Confusing UI and Cloud-based Settings Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
Even lay users of privacy add-ons prefer local settings for, well, privacy purposes. Having cloud-based settings completely defeats the purpose of having a privacy add-on!
Additionally, the UI has been completely rearranged! Long-time users will find this utterly confusing, especially considering the lay-out resembles Android apps, which is completely foreign to anyone NOT using Android apps!
The i/o switches are ambiguous, and there are no easy ways to determine whether trackers are actually blocked or not.
Basically, this add-on only fills a purpose of INFORMATION. Well, any semi-savvy user can right-click to page information and Google questions regarding cross-site requests, cookie information, and scripts.
Mostly unobtrusive Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Highly effective, and mostly unobtrusive. Only messages about updates and configuring new functionality.
Works good for me Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
I've read reviews that claim Ghostery slows down FireFox. For me, it is the opposite. Ads, and etcetera, slow my browser to a crawl on some websites. Ghostery speeds it up big time. Plus, I don't have to deal with annoying pop-ups that block what I am trying to read or click.
The only negative thing I have to say is that Ghostery should block new websites' trackers by default, rather than have me go into the GUI and then it refresh the page.
The GUI is easy to use and explains what may be needed for certain functions, like watching videos.
It used to have an annoying red list display what trackers are being blocked, which would prevent me from clicking certain things until it disappeared, but I haven't seen that in a while so they must have fixed it in a previous update.
I give it 4 stars as it currently is for doing what it's designed to do, but not 5 stars because it should block certain things by default. I mean, that is what people use it for.
Slowing down Firefox Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
It seems to be slowing down Firefox, mainly on startup. Latest version on Linux.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).
Somewhat sceptical that it asks for your private information during setup, which is what the app protects against. But really polished addon. Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
It seems a little ironic that Ghostery asks to opt you into you providing your private information, despite the apps purpose being to protect users from trackers. Great addon though, just wish the developer wouldn't word the opt in so sensationally.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).
Very good Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
Set and forget. Blocks well, you can opt out of reports and personal tracking and it blocks more "ghosts" than AvastCette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).
Meh... Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles
What can I say. To me it works not the way I want. This plug-in is website-oriented. Despite all the options it lacks granularity. I want to be able to block specific parts of trackers of a website, whatever the tracker(s) may do. Without this option implemented in some reasonable way, this plug-in is too cumbersome for my taste.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).
New User Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
First time installation and use of Ghostery and the features are useful. Each tracker is categorized and listed along with the option to block/unblock at will. Very intuitive and functional for its purpose.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).
Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
This extension used to be about blocking trackers; now, the first thing it does after installation is open a new tab that goes to a webpage to configure it (why not offline like before?), with Google Analytics, Google Fonts, and a "Cookie Consent". It gets harder and harder to configure as 99% of the users want with each revision, with dubious UI choices like removing the "select all" options.
It feels like a bait-and-switch for a long-time user like me. I cannot recommend it anymore.
Apart from that, it still works as advertised... I think...
Ghostery Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Seems to do a good job in preventing 3rd parties from spying on you. However, some 3rd party data grabbers need to be enabled for some pages to work (i.e. videos, other functions).Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).
Highly recommendable Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Effective, user-friendly, gives me choices. Can't imagine any reason not to have it.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).
Does the job Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Does a good job -- have used Ghostery for a long time. Some web sites insist that you disable some of its blocking. I will look at what Ghostery has blocked and if it says, "critical to functioning of web site," I will allow that feature.Cette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).

Works well in conjunction with NoScriptCette critique est pour une version précédente du module (6.3.1).
