- Rated 1 out of 5This Ghostery extension disfigures *every* web page for 10 seconds with a bright purple display in the lower right corner of the web page showing all the trackers it has blocked.
Yes, bright purple junk added to *every* web page for 10 seconds.
Highly distracting and unacceptable for any extension to add spam to web pages.
This extension *must* be changed (in order to not consider it being spam itself) to have an option to allow not showing that purple non-static (hence distracting) spam for 10 seconds on every web page.
Obviously I am uninstalling this spamware now, after incorrectly blaming the problem on the newest version 69 of Firefox (which btw actually recommended this Ghostery extension).
Developer responseposted 2 months agoThis setting can be disabled by clicking the Ghostery icon > click the three stacked dots > click "settings" > click "purple box" > uncheck the box that says "show the purple box in the corner of my browser".

- Rated 1 out of 5Naja, habe eben mal diese Erweiterung auf https://www.detectadblock.com/ getestet und die Webseite hat sofort erkannt, das ich den Adblocker Ghostery benutze. Das ist der 2. google link für ein Adblock Tester gewesen und schon besiegt ?! Naja das sagt glaube ich alles.
Well, I just tested this extension on https://www.detectadblock.com/ and the website immediately recognized that I use the Adblocker Ghostery. That was the 2nd google link for an adblock tester and Ghostery was already defeated?! Well I belive that's all there is to say.
