Je suis utilisateur de Ghostery depuis plusieurs années mais la, cette dernière mise à jour ralenti énormement mon firefox. Un des processus de firefox reste entre 20 et 40% d'utilisation CPU. Le navigateur ne répond plus quelques secondes régulièrement. l'utilisation de Bing marche mal, la page est en chargement permanent .. Bref, cette version 8 est sortie trop vite je pense. Tous ces problèmes disparaissent une fois Ghostery désactivé. J'espère un correctif rapidement car jusqu'ici, cette extension est top.
I love this add on. I had no idea there were so many different trackers slowing down my internet speed. Why is this stuff legal. Keep up your great work.
Thanks for using Ghostery! :-)

segurudad de busqueda
Used it for quite a while, and it does its job perfectly fine. Would've rated it 5/5 unitl the last update, but that one broke my Twitch chat. I can't read or write anything there. Any ideas which trackers I can allow to fix?
Thanks for using Ghostery! We are working on the twitch fix now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Excelente e Indispensable para el internauta de hoy en día
Das ist der nervigste AddOn-Schund, den ich je installiert habe.
Works good as adblock too.
Good but I didn't understand well how does it works on the mobile version, it is really different from the PC's screenshots! So I don't know how to use all the potential of this extension!( Specially in Waterfox because in Firefox nightly it isn't so bad as the "ghostery option" in the "3 dots" still working here but not works in waterfox
Thanks for using Ghostery! We can't guarantee compatability with the Firefox offshoots. But we are trying.. I'll submit this as a ticket for product updates. For more info on specific usability questions please shoot an email to email@example.com to get more 1:1 assistance. Thanks again!
That Moment..... when ghostery is blocking a tracker on ghostery.com :P
After the update to version 8, firefox-esr is slow as a dog, to the point where it's unusable. Pages that before loaded in less than a second now load in 20-30 seconds all while the CPU load sits at 100% all the time. On top of it, many times pages fail to load or sit at 100% CPU forever. The browser itself takes ages to start when it has to restore a few tabs from the previous session. All of this goes away if I disable ghostery, which is funny considering that ghostery 8 touts itself for providing a faster browsing experience.
One example www.speedtest.net (using flash) never finishes loading, sits at 100% CPU forever. It's sibling site beta.speedtest.net (non-flash variant) takes 15-20 seconds to load and be ready and then it gives speed results 5 times lower than with ghostery disabled. In one instance when I tried to load the page it reported an error that the add-blocker prevented it from loading and recommended I add some of the site URLs to the add-blocker allow list (and this is not a site that tries to force you to disable add-blockers in order to use it).
Previous version worked fine though it made youtube slower, but this new version broke everything and made the browser slow down to a crawl, that is when it's working at all.
Hey thanks for reporting these issues. Could you try creating a new FFX profile and see if you still have the same CPU load issues? I'm copying this as a support ticket so we can be sure to work through these issues. Thank you again!
with new update:twitter - broken, yt - broken, disqus - broken, steam - broken . one each of this site after few refresh settings are broken(dark theme on yt back to white,disqus showing im not loged but hey one refresh ago i was and suprise suprise i refresh again and woila loged,on steam some pictures stop loads) howyou manage to broke good addon with one update? [220.127.116.11 working good ]
Thanks for reporting. I see the disqus issue on some sites, but not seeing the others. Can you send us some more system information so we can track this work? firstname.lastname@example.org
Si ça marche comme vous le dîtes alors bravo c'est très bien. Merci
Ghostery automatically updated to 18.104.22.168 on Dec. 6, 2017. The "view image" option in the context menu hasn't worked since, on any site, unless I disable Ghostery. It worked fine before the update. Now, it can be clicked, and the image address appears in the address bar, but the page displayed doesn't change. "Save image" still works normally.
Also, if the image contains a link to the original image, clicking the image opens a page with the image's address, but nothing shows. So, if the original page has the image in a reduced size, there is no way to see the full-size image, as there is no way to open just the image.
Before this update I would have given it a 5. I have used it for many years, with no problems, but this is unacceptable.
This latest version of Ghostery, Version 8 has some serious defects. It immediately blocked me from signing out of social media sites.
The browser had to be closed and cookies removed before I could exit from Twitter. I have turned it off until they fix this latest installment. Good program up until now.
appreciate the feedback. We are working on a fix that should be out this week to address many of your issues. Thanks for reporting!
One of the privacy essentials; works as advertised.
Unfortunately, the current version causes a warning to be displayed in the console at every page/frame load: "loading pref showConsoleLogs before prefs were initialised, you will not get the correct result" (using FF 57). This is distracting and should be fixed. There doesn't seem to be a public issue tracker for Ghostery, so this will have to do.
The single most annoying plugin I've ever seen. Great they stop trackers, but can they STOP advertising themselves for a single second?
It's impossible, this god damn extension is always poping up to say something about itself or its developers...
Appreciate the Feedback. The notifications can always be turned off from the notifications section of the options menu just as an FYI. Sorry to see you go.
Einfach und toll
new update is not good
setting has many problems dont know how to work with
I dont understand why developers try to change the extensions that working good and turn them to a very unuseful one.

Весело мигает кнопкам, крутит колесики, бегают циферки полная имитация бурной деятельности. По факту - ноль, дупло., дыра черная.. То-ж rutracker.org хоть и определился как сайт из списка но открыть не осилило. Удаляю нах и самоделкиных соорудивших подобный высер в ЧС.
