Take your time to get to know what Ghostery's settings do. Look around for more info about how to configure it. It does its job nicely.

Great! I feel a lot more confident browsing the web. Just checked & it blocked 7 trackers on the New York Times main page.

Nice and simple in use Rated 4 out of 5 stars

But it occupies a lot of space in addon bar although almost the same we can see in Navigation bar.
Is it possible to hide icon and info in addon bar and represent the number of unblocked trackers (this is most essential info) in toolbar icon (that by default is in navigation bar and can be moved to other bars). This proposal I posted also in your forum.
Thank you

Hi difabor. The option you are looking for already exists: open Ghostery options, go into advanced section and toggle the Show Ghostery in Add-on Bar option.

Makes everything faster Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works Great! Speeds up page load times significantly!

My favorite feature is the option to stop all those social buttons from loading automatically.

Nice add-on. Scans for scripts, images, malware and any other entity that is "watching" where you go and blocks them. Has a whitelist that allows sites you trust to use scripts, i.e. but even on those, you can see who is tracking you. Thank you

This is a must-have extension, because it removes so much unneeded clutter from surfing the web. Thanks to a white-list and the easily accessible disable/pause function for the whole blocking or for single sites, Ghostery is the perfect companion for any Firefox user.

My only issue - which is admittedly small - is with the navigation bar icon of Ghostery. It's truly minor, but the icon constantly changes size from one tab to another or from one website to the next. These repeated resizes drive me crazy, which is why I don't use the icon anymore. If we could get a fixed-width button (or an option to disable the number being displayed), Ghostery would deserve a full five stars.

OK + Suggest feature. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

(Working perfect in my FF 21.0 in XP)
Suggestion:
• Mosty pleople MOVE the toolbar buttons each one of us in diferent place. Besides the fact that i can move the toolbar button to ADDON-BAR and hide (in the Ghostery options) the STATUS-BAR Button, i think wil be awesome if the STATUS-BAR icon is Moveable too, i mean, it need apears in the ADDON-BAR. That way the user can agroup some "similar" icons (or tools) in way that he felt, without having a tool (icon) near another that doesn't have any relationship with privacy, blockers, or something that way.
• Also you can put in the options an option to let the status-bar icon's apparencein the way that it is, or make without word, just de numbers. You could help it by changing the number's colors. To avoid problems with Personas (skin themes) you can put options to let the user changue the colors of each state.
• Besides the funtionality, i tend to chose things by their skin (and the capacity of it). Meaning about the big blue and white pop-up is there any chance to intgrate a second skin much more darker. I will feel more confortable with a kind of dark grey and blue (in example).
• Also i have a couple images that will perfect if i could chose the skin of the tiny pop-up. It's not bad yours, but if there any way to change it.

Please, disqus with your team and if you want to implement review's suggestion from whoever (mines or not), and that thing need change something that Ghostery has, don't drop the OLD by the NEW one; make that you do with the big pop-up. You LET THE USER change it. That one is one of things that informatic developers forget very often. Well. Nothing more about suggestions.

I want to say you that i love the pop-up images in the advanced options. That way you help the user undestand the things more easy, reading less to continun enjoying the web. Also i love the animations that you implement. I have a slow machine and i love deskmoding my desktop and my programs, but sometimes i take off the animations and chose static things cuz it slow down my machine or the animations don't show smoothly. The Ghostery animations shows very right and smoothly. So thanks for that too.

Well. Nothing more. Forgive my bad english. (i does my best). And sorry if i boring you.

Very useful add-on to keep out all those snoopers. Good user interface. A great tool to explore all those companies tracking us on the internet.

Excellent plugin for blocking an incredible amount of hidden spam. I would vastly prefer a FOSS version of a program like this, but, until that comes along, Ghostery is more than adequate.

Ghostery along side of AdBlock and NoScript are the holy trinity of Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With proper configuration these add-ons are what makes Firefox the best browser on the market. Yes Chrome has Ghostery, it may even have AdBlock, but the lack of NoScript is still too painfull to deal with (at least for me it is ;)

I love extensions like this that are aimed at protecting a users privacy on the web from third party elements on websites. I use this in combination with Do Not Track Me and Adblock Plus (with several additional blocklists). However, I've never had the time, but I would be very interested in seeing how the block lists for Ghostery and Do Not Track Me compare. From some really basic tests (disabling one of them and leaving the other enabled (with ABP disabled)) it seems that Ghostery and DNTMe do *NOT* have the same block lists. Which begs the question, what is DNTMe missing and what is Ghostery missing?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.4.1-signed). 

AFAIK, Ghostery list contains all entries DNTMe does and much more. The lists are not the same, tho mostly in naming. I'm not sure what the convention that Abine uses, but Ghostery names its entries either by the company name, or particular product that company offers, for example, Ghostery has 5 separate entries for Doubleclick. If you have a particular question about the databases, please use our support forum here: https://getsatisfaction.com/ghostery/ and we'll answer any other questions you may have.

The Best Blocker Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the best addon for blocking the trackers. Blocks trackers which most of the other blockers wont even identify. The tracker block list is massively huge!!
