Disappointed Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Looks just like the regular default firefox theme on my ibook. Just gray, no orange at all.

I agree that the negative reviewers are wrong. If you look up "Better Advertising," you will see that it is a company that works with advertising companies to ensure that they comply with industry standards to protect consumer privacy. If you read the Ghostery privacy disclosures you will see that they do not collect any personally identifiable information. If you try using Ghostery, you will see every cookie that any company/website is attempting to install on your computer, how long it is designed to remain active, and a link to a page that summarizes the company's purpose, what kind of information it collects, and what it does with that information. You will see that almost every web page you visit installs more cookies and collects more information on you and your websurfing habits than you ever dreamed of. The information that these people are worried about Ghostery collecting IS ALREADY BEING COLLECTED BY ALMOST EVERY WEBSITE YOU VISIT!!! And many of them much more personal, more intrusive and longer-lasting than what Ghostery does. The knowledge and the control you have over who is placing cookies on your computer and collecting information on you is so much greater with Ghostery than without it. And you have the choice with each and every one, if you want, to block the site totally, accept only certain cookies, or allow them for the browser session only. I accept a lot of them for the session only if they are not collecting information to personally target me for marketing; then whenever I close or refresh the browser, they're gone. My computer and browser are not constantly getting slowed down by the accumulation of unwanted cookies. This is a great add-on.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).
Works well but needs different icon Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Works very well. However, as another reviewer said, the icon looks just like a refresh button. You could easily hit it by mistake and restart Firefox when you don't want to. I like the suggestion to make the icon look like a spinning fox [a la sonic the hedgehog].This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.3).

Thank you thank you thank you for fixing the scrollbar in Mac OS! I love this theme and that is the only reason I stopped using it before. I love the color and the clarity of it - beautiful but easy to read and easy on the eyes. Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2).

As per prior reviewers, I love the beauty and readability of this theme, but not being able to see the scrollbars is aggravating. I miss my beloved up and down scroll buttons at the bottom of the scrollbar, one of the things I love about the Mac OS. Also annoying is that I can't jump up and down the page by clicking in the scrollbar area. I stay with this theme because I love the look for a while, then switch to another when the annoyance factor gets too great. I went to the support site, but it was in French. Hope they can fix this.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0).
Agree it's great but no scrollbar Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Love the colors and simplicity of the icons, but I also can't see any scrollbars - they work if I put the cursor there and move it, but they are white on white. Is this a Mac problem? They show in the sample pictures. Also, for my older eyes could stand a little larger or clearer font in the bookmarks toolbar - I think the white letters on blue need a font with more space between the letters, because there isn't enough contrast. I love the green in the address bar!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.1).
Whoa! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Would have been great except it slowed my iBook down worse than any spyware. I have 1 gig RAM. I had to take it off.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168).
