works too well Rated 3 out of 5 stars

IT blocks embedded youtube videos
and also maps
will give a better rating when this is fixed
it should be a little more lenient
you could be able to have some options to choose what to block from the google disconnect icon in the url bar
thank you

Google Disconnect Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice idea but it prevents Google maps from displaying. I just get a blank area where I expect to see a map. Disable this add-on and the maps display as normal.

Blocks embedded Youtube videos Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I really like the idea of the add-on and don't see any other problems, but what really prevents me from using it is that it blocks ALL embedded Youtube videos. Embedded Youtube video? Pff, white space is better, in this add-ons opinion!

Blocks Captchas (ReCaptcha) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works fine, except for me, it blocks 'Re-Captcha' captcha images from appearing on some of the sites I frequent. Took some time turning off addons 1-by-1 to isolate Google Disconnect as the issue. Checked on the background for Re-Captcha; et voila, "...acquired by Google in September 2009". Now it makes sense! :D

Video blocking Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It blocks all embedded Youtube videos for me as well. This did not *always* happen, but I can not pinpoint when it started.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Embedded media disappears.

Did developers even test this thing?

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I don't know if it really works to keep Google away, or not. I DO know that when I disabled it, all embedded videos reappeared. When disconnect was enabled many videos were MIA.

Full Tested Google, Facebook & Twitter Disconnect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have fully tested the Google Disconnect v242 add-on and the developer description is exactly as described... Work perfectly fine with Firefox browser v19 but "Gaianeh" comment posted on June 8, 2012 and me have the same blocked issue with Facebook when trying to watch Youtube videos, if this happen to you then to solve this problem just follow instructions.

Google Disconnect: Disable Firefox add-on from extension manager.
Facebook Disconnect: Disable AdBlock Plus v223 everywhere option.
Twitter Disconnect: Found no problem watching videos on Facebook.

Also some websites are block from seeing the image captcha code,if so then simply select the unblock preference in the location bar and that will restore the image captcha code back... Now for those who having trouble saving Google Disconnect preference its because you need to have your web browser cookies enable or if you have remove all the old cookies files using Firefox "Clear Recent History" option then all your preference will go back to the original default setting... Enjoy!

Easy & works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great plugin for blocking Google services you don't want. Works easy without any configuration.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

does its job very well...however, blocks captchas and does not save your preferences when you unblock. if it didn't block captchas and saved preferences, would be a PERFECT add-on. However, in its current state, serves only to make you pull your hair out.

Reblocking Google once it's unblocked. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

How does one block Google once it's been unblocked? Even on this page, I had unblock Google in order to register.

Two words; opt out.

Needs to store preferences to be useful. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add on is effective at blocking, but it really needs a whitelist, or some way of remembering your preferences, and that is the problem, I've had to disable it many times, I've removed it for now.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add on blocks a lot of flash videos that you may want to see. You can however click the icon in the awesome bar and reload the page to get that element to show. I have found however that there are times when a video will be blocked and there will be no icon in the bar. This can be very frustrating to say the least.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.0.1-signed). 

Preferences not kept in memory Rated 3 out of 5 stars

"Your preference will be remembered the next time you’re on the site."

Unfortunaly my preferences get lost each time I leave a site! What can I do to solve the problem?

Blocks Google Maps too :-( Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I faced some troubles showing Google Maps on different webpages. Disabling "Google Disconnect" helped...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.0.1-signed). 

See the instructions

A Google Disconnect icon shows up in the location bar when Google resources, like maps, are blocked. Click the icon to permanently unblock the resources.

I am also having the same issue with YouTube videos being blocked on Facebook and on other sites as well. There is no icon in the address bar to make site-specific changes.

Doing the Job Well Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this great and simple extension. Works as expected in Firefox 12 and 13beta6.... With the new version update next week, in order to work in 14beta and beyond this extension will need an update ! Thanks Again !

Embedded YouTube via Facebook Rated 3 out of 5 stars

@Brian Kennish - I see no icon in the address bar or anywhere else allowing the user to block or allow resources while browsing YouTube videos within Facebook. Embedded YouTube videos won't show in Facebook posts.
