This plugin doesn't prevent all ads.
Because the ratings of this extension are very high, I tested Ghostery first and found it overloaded with details, I don't want to know about. Especially the need to check and adjust the settings every time I visit a new site is annoying. After a thorough testing for a period of time, I replaced Ghostery with Disconnect. After the same testing period with Disconnect, I have to say that Disconnect is more suitable for me. But that is just my opinion. Everyone should decide for themselves.
Settings aren't required page by page. You can set them in the blocking options section of the Ghostery options and then use the panel for page by page exceptions when needed. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss further and we appreciate your time writing this review.
I suppose the addon works well.
It just forces itself to the front, announcing all trackers it has disabled.
You can disable this - but it will come back on next program start.
You're saying the alert bubble setting in the advanced tab reverts to default? Can you email me at email@example.com? I'll be happy to investigate this further.
OK! I'll come clean at the outset: I installed Ghostery just a couple of days ago because of multiple problems following an automatic update to DoNotTrackMe which led me to remove it. I won't go into all the woes here cos I've done so in a review of that product. It's early days, but I really think finding myself without tracking protection and desperately seeking an alternative may have been a blessing in disguise. So far I'm delighted with Ghostery. It finds more trackers on any given page than the competition did. Perhaps a minor criticism is that Ghostery expects the user to make choices about what to block and what to allow - not so easy for folk like me who don't know their beacons from their widgets and are too darn lazy to work through the excellent tutorial!! I guess I'll learn, though - this seems to be one very impressive add-on!!
What an awesome addon! Keep up the good work!
Disappointing. No matter how many times I set the Options, Ghostery refused to consistently block everything. (Checking the select-all box for Widgets did check everything in the Widget list, but upon saving and re-entering Options, everything below a certain point in the alphabetic list - around L - was unchecked again.) It also seemed not to block all new elements, even though that option was enabled.
Using my favorite sites, I also noticed that Ghostery identified & blocked fewer elements than DoNotTrackMe used to.
I uninstalled Ghostery and will look for a better alternative.
Keep up the good work!
As a Techie; This is absolutely the "Best of the Best" anti-tracking software and because it's free, that makes it Awesomely, Awesome!!!
I'd die if this add-on was not there.
The internet is unusable without this add-on.
All that I needed
This research of web analytics and flags, like mozillians, opens door in world of freedom network and this is great doing.
Very good add on.
Could you kindly provide support for SeaMonkey 2.30.
i LOVE ghostery! they block so many things that other apps don't!
i reply on them all the time!
Thank you so much!
I am so glad all the unwanted ads and commercials have been gone. Besides I feel much more comfortable knowing that not each of my steps is being tracked out there!
Muito bom. Privacidade sempre!
Brilliant addon. Works perfectly. Database is updated almost daily. Optional "allow once" and "allow always" for viewig websites/videos that don't work otherwise (though for me, if a website uses a video player that tracks the viewer I don't want to know). Kudos to the developers. Works seamlessly with AdBlockPlus, NoScript, etc.
Wonderful, efficient, always up-to-date, and easy to work with. Also has a cute icon! :3
Can be used alongside "Adblock Plus" and "Do Not Track Me" safely, and for better results. Also, try "Mask Me," also by Abine, and some of these:
Others I recommend are "Better Privacy," "Saved Password Editor," "Secure Login," "Session Manager" a MUST (trust me, I lost everything without it!), and "Flash Block."
I love add-ons, and it is important to support the good ones so they continue to be used. I am still waiting for Zoom in to be updated to the most recent FireFox... :( I am now using "Perfect View" instead, which is more complex, but very nice.
I have others, but they are for art stuff, making webpages look reasonable as they should, and some cool things. I wish "Scapbook" would update. Mozilla made their edit icon disappear, and I relied heavily (still do!) on that add-on for school and daily life!
Me encanta éste add-on, así puedo ver las cookies de cada página e incluso bloquearlas.

Great app that provides a lot of information.
I like the addon, everything great, thanks.
While I love Ghostery's blocking the myriad trackers encountered on the Web, I found that something in it is now blocking my Firefox Options from displaying. When I disable Ghostery, the Options window displays properly. When I wrote the developers about this problem, they told me that Mozilla did something to cause it when upgrading from v31 to v32 and are working to fix it. In the meantime, when I need to access Firefox Options, I disable Ghostery and then enable it when I finish. Hopefully, someone will fix this problem soon so I can update my rating back to 5 stars.
