Does exactly like it should, except for this minor bug. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Moving the Disconnect icon from the toolbar to the menu and restarting Firefox would make the drop-down box smaller. See here: https://i.imgur.com/zxmLLj0.png
I have to keep it in the Toolbar so it doesn't do that.

This gives you in depth information about what sites are attached to the website you are visiting and lets you know which are tracking you and why. Great tool.
Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems the block settings don't "stick" - every time you check Disconnect button you have to click to grey it if you don't want it to track?
Also it seriously breaks at least one site - ijpr.org.
Why Facebook, Google, Twitter separate? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
1) If this main app has Facebook, Google, Twitter, then why is he providing the three separately? What extra does it do?
2) Is this really a genuine developer? Just being cautious because Ghostery got sold.

No thanks still get tracked even removed my other addons as stated for it to work ABP then started getting bluescreens removed it just now
Pretty happy with this. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I used Disconnect with Firefox and my other browser, White Hat Aviator, which is exceptionally good at not leaving any footprints when you surf the internet.
next to worthless Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Disconnect does nothing but give a brief summary of what it thinks is loaded on the web page that you don't need. Its web page is a bunch of bluster about web sites spying on you, but has no real (technical) explanation of what Disconnect does.
NoScript is a far superior add-on that does what Disconnect claims to do.

Хорошее, стабильное дополнение
Disconnect add-on & Disconnect Desktop Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If you click on the Disconnect add-on, and then click on more, there's a link to the Disconnect webpage, which offers downloads of larger, cross-browser Disconnect alternatives. Disconnect Desktop seems to do a good job at blocking trackers. In the past, the add-on too seemed to do a good job.
I have a few questions about the relationship between the two that I hope the developer will answer.
1. Does the Disconnect add-on supplement Disconnect Desktop, or does Disconnect Desktop make the add-on superfluous for persons who use more than one browser?
2. On the Disconnect add-on page it says, “Note about using Disconnect with other filtering add-ons like Adblock Plus: Disconnect is compatible with other filtering add-ons, but if you want Disconnect to show blocking info, uninstall then reinstall any other filtering add-ons you have (i.e., Disconnect must be added first).”
Disconnect and Disconnect Search loaded together with a recent Firefox reload, but the add-on no longer shows any blocking info. Does Disconnect Desktop replace the add-on and prevent it from functioning?
3. Does Disconnect Desktop prevent some Mac Yosemite updates from downloading, and if so which? When downloading software updates, is it generally a good idea to disconnect Disconnect?

Again, this add-on appears to be no longer supported. Despite the developer's claim, there has been no update in over eight months.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Blocks everything Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Awesome tool. Only caveat it sometimes breaks functionality of certain websites. But it's easy to whitelist a site, so not a real issue

The best tracking protection. And 3 times lightweighter than Ghostery. Thanks.
Efficient Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I feel a lot better whilst browsing the web combining this with HTTPS Everywhere and uBlock. It does its job flawlessly and if not, you're doing something wrong/most likely your configuration (software installed on your machine) isn't the right choice.
In the event something might not work it's easy to disable the extension with the help of a very intuitive button. De-installation is also very easy.
Disconnect Add-On, Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Currently, I use not only Disconnect, but Ghostery--and Lightbeam's tracking protection--as well. They seem copacetic enough. In addition to these, I have tried others, and I find that Disconnect catches a lot, if not the most, and is quite user-friendly with a very intuitive interface. I also intend to experiment with Disconnect Dashboard.
May work but poorly designed, even without comparing to alternatives. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I'm not sure how effective it is but the interface is poor, very annoying and confusing as has been mentioned.
Just by looking at it you don't know if something is being allowed or blocked, one can only presume as there is no definite feedback.
One can only expand one "group" at a time causing others to collapse so you can't get a good look at everything in one go.
It doesn't have any options so one can't for example set it to not automatically refresh pages once you block/unblock something, and since there's no pausing block/allow ALL, the page will continually and repeatedly reload in the background while the user runs around expanding groups having to click on a checkbox for every single thing listed if they want to pause or disable it on a page to check if it's the source of a problem with a site or page. Thankfully one can whitelist a site but some could easily end up forgetting that they've whielisted something it if they were just testing so an option to pause the addons blocking would be an improvement.
It has bizarre scroll buttons at the top and bottom, which one has to hover over to use, would be a nightmare if all scrolling worked like that instead of simply using the mouse scroll wheel.
It always displays useless time/bandwidth saved claims, which does nothing but take up screen space and of course using resources to keep track of this.
Even the little counter number it displays on it's icon is flawed in that it registers as part of the browser window rather than part of the icon so when clicking the icon one has to avoid clicking the number covering part of it.
I don't know who designed the interface for this but it is in many ways a great example of how not to do thing ranging from user friendliness to efficiency via sensibility.
fake/shareware? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
on the site it says that free version only shows the trackers, only the premium will block them
Confusing UX - does green mean blocked or unblocked? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Confusing UX - does green mean blocked or unblocked? The F.A.Q. states that "[icons are] shown separately to make them easy to block or unblock". So what is it?!? Are they blocked or unblocked?
Not a true Ghostery replacement yet. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Believe me, I really really really want to replace Ghostery and it's dishonest developers. The issue here is it still is lacking in some functionality. With some modest improvements it could really do it though.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Compared Disconnect and Ghostery. Prefer Disconnect. Visualization needed in the addon for Firefox ( Has it in the Chrome version) otherwise it works great.

USED to be the BEST
Found out that ADOBE was sending information to businesscatalyst.com and I did block it on my router but now, IT SUCKS. I can NOT goto Walmart.com it FREEZES it. It changed, need a version BEFORE JAN 15,2015 and DISABLE AUTO UPDATE. This sucks now, Ghostery is better
