Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use Ghostery in conjunction with Adblockplus and NoScript and they seem to coexist together without issues. I wouldn't use firefox without Ghostery its a must have addon in my opinion. The dev's are updating it on a regular basis which shows commitment and dedication to making web browsing a more trustworthy experience.

Recent update Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Was working great until most recent update. Now checking and unchecking a box runs the risk of crashing your browser, even though the box is selected for "blocking new trackers" it still allows trackers, and overall it has been slowing down my browser's performance.

Ghostery 7.1.1 Dead...Uninstlled Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm a long time user. BUT,Ghostery has been getting more messy with each release. Each release seems to becoming less useful. 7.1.1... a total failure. Even sites that have been notorious for more than a dozen trackers now show 0! I've uninstalled it from all my PC's (winxp -> Win 10) and my Android tablet. Was great now an empty space.

Total broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have used Ghostery 7.1.1x on Win7 with normal update rights (newest version).
Some sites are broken. Stopped Ghostery and the site works! Looked deeper and found, that only two trackers are found and locked by Ghostery.
Go back on my old XP machine - and surprise: Ghostery 5.4.10 (no update) found and lock six (6) trackers, and the site will work as good as without Ghostery!!
Go back on my Win7 machine to Ghostery 5.4.10 (used saved old XPI-File). And it works good as on the XP machine.
Bad experience!! Broken function on newer versions, bad user interface...


[EDIT as response to answer from amoody]

All six listed trackers in Ghostery 5.x are blocked. I use only about eight unblocked "trackers" (for example "Typekit by Adobe"), the other settings are standard. Ghostery 7 was installed with full standard settings and list only two blocked trackers - and with broken site function...

Hello Thomas!

Both versions of the extension use the same tracker library so if the settings are exactly the same you should see pretty much the same results using either version.

When you are using version 5.4.10 are you blocking everything and using the same settings as version 7.1? If functionality of the site is broken with version 7 but not with version 5 it may be possible that you are not blocking something when using version 5.

That could also explain why you see more trackers on version 5. If trackers are left unblocked they will chain call other trackers so you will see more being reported by the extension. For example, one tracker on the page may be a tag manager that calls another four trackers. If the tag manager is blocked by Ghostery then the calls will not be made to those other four trackers so it would only show up as one tracker on that page. However, if you leave it unblocked it will call the other four trackers and Ghostery results will show a total of five trackers on the same page.

If you would like to contact us at support@ghostery.com I would be happy to take a look at the site in question and review what findings I make with you.

Have a wonderful day!

Used to be good until recent builds - Waiting to see if it will be fixed Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ghostery stopped working even before upgrading to ff50. The main problem is that I was unable to modify parameters from the main icon. Just displayed what was blocked/enabled. Had to go back to prior versions to regain access to disabled Buttons. 5* for prior builds, 0* for current version.

Used to work. TOTALLY BROKEN NOW Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Too many sites redirect. Using ghostery totally destroys using the internet now. Sorry, I have to uninstall. It breaks what I NEED to do. I wish I could give it 0 stars now.

Meh... 3/5 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's okay, but it's not as good as it was when I first started using it. There are now better tracker-blocker extensions, but this one still gets the job done.

Stopped working after Firefox 50 update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Been using for several years with no problems. Did a great job but not with Firefox 50 update, blocking stats do not show and clicking on the icon only produces a blank page. Tried reinstalling and updating...no luck

Stopped Working after 50.0 update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Worked great until Firefox 50.0 update.
Then stop displaying block items or the menu when Ghostery toolbar icon selected. Just shows a blank Ghostery page. Rated 4 based on past performance

A must! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Successfully blocks the numerous trackers and their spamming my e-mail account. How wonderful it is to use the internet without ads popping up all over the screen, and to see a video on Youtube or other sites, without noisy commercials blasting my eardrums out. Works like a charm. THANK YOU! <3
