Keep getting reviews deleted. Reporting to AMO. Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

This is either the 3rd or 4th review, I can't remember now, of VALID reasons why I no longer use Ghostery. You can also add to those reasons that you are trusting your privacy and security with a company that seems content to silence critical reviews in order to keep its high rating on AMO. I believe this is incredibly relevant for an add-on that claims to make the internet more transparent... If they cannot even be transparent themselves!

It was after my first or second review was posted that I refused to use Ghostery anymore. I was hoping they would reimplement the features of the old version (advanced cookie blocking, tracker blocking) but this is clearly a route they do not wish to go down anymore. How about, rather than deleting this review, you take the time to respond to my criticisms? (I have re-posted this review to my personal GitHub and Pastebin, just in case it gets taken down AGAIN).

All 7.3.x and 7.2.x Versions are unuseable... Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

As many reported before: Latest Version are unusesable in the meantime. Have the same lag of several seconds at FireFox (55.0.2/32Bit) start many useres reported already... Only solution was to install last 7.1.x version availbale. This is 7.1.3.1...

Nicht mehr brauchbar... Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Ich nutzte dieses Add-on nun schon lange, habe mich heute aber davon getrennt. Es blockiert nur noch alles mögliche, was ich brauche, verzögert den Browserstart extrem und auch nach dem Start, funktioniert der Firefox nicht sofort, es dauert bis zu 30 Sekunden, bis ich endlich eine Adresse ins Adressfeld oder einen Suchtext, ins Suchfeld eingeben kann. Somit habe ich "Ghostery" heute deinstalliert und verzichte darauf!

Also had to disable Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Great addon BUT caused my firefox to be almost unusable, 10 sec start lag, videos on youtube were very sluggish and unresponsive

Dsiabled till a fix comes out.

I remove Ghostery and write an article about it.

THanks for your reply.

Since Firefox 55.0.2 startup issue seems solved! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This morning I upgraded Firefox to version 55.0.2 (Mac 10.10.5). To my surprise the startup delay caused by Ghostery earlier (in FF 54) is no longer an issue! Startup is fast as lightning (well.. almost ;-)

Great!

Latest update not compatible with Firefox 55.0.2 Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Sorry but as many other users I had to disable Ghostery as it was the reason why Firefox was taking about 10 sec to open!
Please dev team go back to the drawing board. Thanks in advance, hope you can solve the problem.

Ghostery is reason of slowly Firefox. Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

Ghostery is good addon, but his performance is very bad.

When is ghostery enable FF consum 25% of CPU and 2 GB RAM. Start FF is slow.

Ghostery is off
Firefox CPU usage 8-10%
and RAM only 1 GB.

I have 64bits FF, 16 GB RAM and I5-3470 CPU + SSD.

Doesn't work starting version 7.3. Well, this is embarrassing. Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Well, this is embarrassing. Ghostery updated to version 7.3 automatically but not supported by Firefox ESR. Ghostery shall not update if is not compatible. It is still gray.

Does Ghostery Developers tested this version? Probably: no.

New Versions Don't Work At All Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Since version 7.3.1, 7.3.1.12 and the recent 7.3.2.5, they all aren't working with Firefox 53.0.2 and 54.0.1.

They are just inactive (greyed out) even when clicked and aren't responsive when setting via https://extension.ghostery.com/settings, It become useless after version 7.2.2!

Latest version no help for Firefox, worse, if anything Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

From first click to initial screen Firefox/My Yahoo takes 10 -20s to appear (depending on whether FF has been previously loaded and closed). Then another 20s to complete. My Yahoo may need to be reloaded to recognize that I am signed in.

By the way, this is on a fairly new Surface 3, Win 10 machine. I won't even try enabling it on my older netbooks.

With the latest Firefox update (55.02) Ghostery became even more problematic -- I've uninstalled it pending confirmation of a real fix for these issues. Sad, but necessary.

Have had to disable Ghostery Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Over the last few months Firefox became slower and slower to open - up to 10 seconds to launch. Even when open it would take another 10 seconds minimum before I could select a bookmark or start typing in the address box.

I disabled all my add-ons and FF started instantly. Re-enabled them all and then disabled them one-by-one, and the add-on causing the problem was Ghostery.

With much regret, have now left Ghostery disabled.

For info: Ghostery 7.3.1.12; Firefox 54.0.1 (32-bit); Windows 10. Other add-ons are: BetterPrivacy, Blur, Classic Theme Restorer, Google Privacy, New Tab Override, No Google Analytics, Print Pages To PDF and Slim Add-ons Manager.

Ghostery is dead to me. Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

For years I've trusted Ghostery and recently my computers have got slower and slower... Ghostery, it was Ghostery's fault. I removed it, it got faster. I'm sorry, you were good once, but that boat has sailed.

A fix is on the way!

We're really sorry about this issue. We have a hotfix waiting on approval from Mozilla, and hope to have it live in the next day or two. In the meantime, you can downgrade to v7.2.2 here:
