Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Not sure what everyone's problem is. It blocks google. Google provide youtube, google maps & ReCaptcha, so it blocks those. You click the red urlbar icon, hit F5 to reload and voila, disabled on that page, couldn't be easier. Yes, if you filled out an entire page of form and then it's lost because you got to the ReCaptcha it's a really annoying, and if you're making a financial transaction it may be best to disable it (not as bad as NoScript blocking payment gateways) but it couldn't be easier to unblock it temporarily. Something like DoNotTrackMe might be more suitable if your choice between privacy and convenience is different.
Works, but blocks just a bit too much Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I quite often have to disable this tool to make sure the ReCAPTCHAS provided by Google and used on many web pages to make sure you are human are not visible. It would be nice if there were an option that the ReCAPTCHA embeddings are not blocked.
プライバシー侵害が甚だしい「Google」との接続をコントロール（切断／接続）するためだけに、特化したアイテムです。 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
このアイテムの人気と評判が芳しくないため、応援＆弁護の Review です。
➡「ロケーションバー」内の右端側に “ｇ” のアイコンが表示されます。アイコンが“赤”＝「切断」、“黒”＝「接続」を意味します。
③「切断（赤）」時に、（Google翻訳などの利用で）Google との接続をしたい場合には、このアイコンをクリックします。プルダウンのコンテキストメニューから「Block ? Google requests(B) 」をクリックするだけです。
④再び「切断」したい場合には、アイコンを “赤” くするだけです。
⑤このアイテムが有効状態の場合は、⑥default は「切断（赤）」なので、Firefox を終了（起動）するたびに、「切断（赤）」にリセットされます。
この “Google によるプライバシー侵害” を憂慮するユーザーには、是非もなく推奨します。
Cant disconnect Disconnect! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
After uninstalling (properly, and according to all instructions) disconnect, it still operates as if still installed, yet it does NOT show up as an Addon in Addons of Firefox.
FireFox is v33.1.1
Disconnect AddOn for FF is v2.4.2
Also, since May of 2013, the addon STILL blanks Google Maps and ALL EMBEDED YouTube videos - that's just stupid.

it misses a usefull option,
we should have the possibility to chose wich request we want to block or unblock.
and infos about it to chose.
Blocks embedded videos on Huffington Post (de) Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Else it works fine.
Shows you just how deep Google reaches into your life.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works almost too well. A wake up call to those of you who do not realise how much Google spies on you, even on sites that have nothing to do with them.
Yes it blocks lots of ReCaptchas etc as many are provided by Google (nice way for Google to track you on sites they have nothing to do with)
Easily disabled on a site by clicking the red button.
You can't have it both ways - either you are happy for the Big G to track your every move, or accept some inconvenience by chopping off their creepy tentacles. I go for the latter.
I also have Facebook and Twitter disconnect too. Excellent tools. Should all be installed by default on every browser IMHO.

Does not do a good job. Blocks too much. Flash gets deactivated with no option to un-block. Do not see RE-CAPTCHA images and have to use other browsers for that. YouTube videos are blocked by default. I thought this would let me view the web as it is while protecting my privacy -- instead of blocking me from seeing any content.
not compatable with my homepage site. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
in using a favorite homepage site of mine (all my faves) with this addon, and after signing in, under all nine tabs which i had set up, there is nothing but a blank white page-absolutely no clickon icons are displayed, though each tab does.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Does not give an option to activate Flash Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Appreciate the thought that went into this extension, but it renders browsing useless on most sites. I was wondering why images like CAPTCHA and other media weren't showing up. This extension is blocking Flash without an option to activate it. It would be great if a version of this extension could come out that still let you view CAPTCHAs and fill out forms.

What? Google tracked me all the way? Thank you for opening my eyes!

Major Problem - Blocks ReCAPTCHA Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I love that it blocks the mess that Ghostery, Google Privacy, Disconnect, DoNotTrackMe, Social Privacy Protector, and TrackMeNot doesn't catch from Google but ReCAPTCHA is something that is necessary for many sites to work.
Error on Facebook Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Idea is ok, but I can't play some video's on Facebook..It just showes a white screen thats all..no sound or video..nothing
good last resort Rated 4 out of 5 stars
this is a good addon. if all of my other blocking addons don't block every thing this picks up what they all missed, same as twitter and Facebook disconnect. unfortunately it is not working with the latest version of Firefox aurora 27.0a2 crashing on start up forcing in to safe mode, I hope it works once more in the future along with twitter and Facebook disconnect. UPDATE:THEY ARE WORKING ONCE MORE
Bug October 2013 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Sorry for reporting a bug here, but it keeps hanging mozilla...
It works if you fallow the directions Rated 3 out of 5 stars
IT does what it supposed to do.What I found is most videos are blocked but if you fallow these - Instructions: "The add-on displays an icon in the location bar if a page initiates Google requests. You can block or unblock the requests by clicking the icon. Your preference will be remembered the next time you’re on the site." Reading things helps a lot.... IT doesn't save the site as it says(or I'm doing something wrong). Which makes It annoying to have to unblock the videos every time...
works too well Rated 3 out of 5 stars
IT blocks embedded youtube videos
and also maps
will give a better rating when this is fixed
it should be a little more lenient
you could be able to have some options to choose what to block from the google disconnect icon in the url bar
Google Disconnect Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Nice idea but it prevents Google maps from displaying. I just get a blank area where I expect to see a map. Disable this add-on and the maps display as normal.
Blocks embedded Youtube videos Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I really like the idea of the add-on and don't see any other problems, but what really prevents me from using it is that it blocks ALL embedded Youtube videos. Embedded Youtube video? Pff, white space is better, in this add-ons opinion!
