Phones Home - Why? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

"Phoning home" every few minutes raises questions - blocked in hosts file until explained. Otherwise seems to work well for specific sites. Gain extra security by blocking generic trackers in hosts file.

Advisable Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I can recommend ghostery.

The only bad thing about it is the annoying red badge next to the symbol.

Otherwise great piece of code what does exactly what it should.


Edit: Sorry if I made it sound unclear. I like the counter. I meant that the color is a problem. It's bright red and you always notice it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.4.4). 

you can turn the badge off from the advanced tab of the options menu.

I've tried most privacy tools, and found that Ghostery is the best. Doesn't seem to slow my low powered PC at all. Keeping my fingers crossed that it remains compatible with PaleMoon though.

It does a great job but it seems to block the verification of ssl certificates sometimes.

Ghostery - absolutely amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've tried many blockers on many browsers, but the Firefox-Ghostery combination is just brilliant. It works amazingly well and the beauty of it is that it's adjustable "on the fly" without having to delve into Preferences. Highly recommended.

One of the best values I've ever been fortunate enough to stumble upon. I depend upon it daily, and it's been thoroughly easy to use and rock-solid dependable. A bargain in every sense of the word.

Great tool also for Seamonkey Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great toos, also works fine with Seamonkey 2.33.1 (German Language pack) Gecko/20100101 Build 20150321194901 (Default Theme) on German WIN7 64bit.
Unfortunately a hint that it works with SM is missing on Ghostery download page.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A good program but I would like it's something to fix / add:
1. We need the ability to synchronize the settings between the firefox plugins are on different computers / devices.
2. The site blocks www.vk.com own widget Vkontakte widgets even if it is set to ignore their own bugs sites.

Ghostery breaks website of German railway company Rated 4 out of 5 stars

On the website of the German railway company (Deutsche Bahn) the ticket search doesn't work with Ghostery.
1. Go to http://ps.bahn.de/preissuche/preissuche/psc_start.post?dbkanal_007=L01_S01_D001_KIN0014_sparpreis_button_content_LZ06
2. Click for example on "Start oder Ziel außerhalb Deutschlands" and select a country
3. The form breaks
4. If you enable Omniture in Ghostery, the site is working as expected

So I guess Ghostery needs a new surrogate for Omniture.

If you care about privacy, this is a must-have! Also if you simply want to see who is trying to track you... you will be surprised how much you are being tracked! If that still didn't convince you: The Ghost looks really cute! :)

Android disappointments, on desktop it's golden Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I would have given five stars when my only experience was with Linux desktop, but the Android version doesn't show the box although there are settings for how long it would show, and location it would be shown, which I changed from bottom right to top right, because your "button" is placed bottom right corner: it hides content, even links sometimes. And it's HUGE, not exactly the size of buttons on desktop version, and sometimes tapping it don't even work.
So you decided to invent a way of your own when everyone else is putting what on desktop used to be icon(s) under the context menu. At least add timeout option to make it disappear, and add a menu entry that opens the same window as the image. That is for Android - oh, and fix the "box" so it shows on Android, as there are even options for them.
You may get the five stars if you make it work - for now I'm considering disabling Ghostery for the time.

Ghostery acting up. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have used this great extension for many moons but lately Ghostery has gone bonkers on my computer.
Some days the configuration window opens when I open the browser and thinking it must be an update, I reconfigure it, until second after it pops up again saying blah blah take the tutorial and it again acts like a new version so I have to go through the settings again.
This has happened about a dozen times in the last week, acting like it was just installed so if this keeps happening I will uninstall it.
