Must Have Cookies On In Options Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love Ghostery. In Ver. (and versions from November 2016 to this ver.), if 'Accept cookies from sites' option is not checked in Firefox v.50.1.0 (and the prior version), Options, Privacy section, even if they are accepted for just that page, the Ghostery trackers do not appear. It was as difficult figuring out this bug over the last two months as solving Will Shortz Sunday Puzzle on NPR. I have to rest now... I'm exhausted.


Thank you for that information! Our development team are currently looking into this issue to see if a fix for this issue is possible. Thank you again for passing that along!

Have a wonderful day and please feel free to reach out to us at if you ever have an issue in the future.

Version 7 ... does not work. (Linux Firefox 50.0.2) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

All 7 versions do not work, I came back to 6.3.2.

Waiting for bug fixes.

Thank you

Не знаю работает оно или нет. У меня после поиска какого-то товара в Гугле, сайт яндекса начинает выводить рекламу с предложением купить этот товар. Вот откуда он узнал, если ghostery должен блокировать все эти рекламные жучки. Но самое главное, что после обновления ghostery как-то сильно "разросся". Было маленькое меню, а теперь оно большое и при попытке отключить ghostery на определенном сайте, он ложет весь браузер, Firefox в ауте секунд на 10

Makes using the web a much better experience Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Gets rid of the junk that makes reading anything on the web plain annoying and does it without breaking anything. Have been using for years. Thanks Ghostery for your work and dedication.

Deleting negative reviews doesn't solve problems Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since V7 no function with running script blocker. With deactivated sb less trackers found than in 6.3.2 on the same site.

Ghostery by Darren Chaker Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ghostery is a decent product for the novice user who wants basic privacy. I would add other options to the extension, but then it may not be free any more when it provides options. But free is free and is not a bad extension.

PLS improve performace of addon Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Bad performance... reaction is slowly.

Used to be great now has big problems Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Ghostery has been the best blocker out there for a long time, but with these latest updates it no longer remembers the trackers to block. I hit select all to block all trackers and it works but when i restart the browser those setting are all removed and have to start all over again! I reverted back to 6.3.2 and it works fine again, please fix your bugs thanks!

Good for me

I agree with Catflap 12-23-16 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Well ghostery, I see that you have gone back to deleting reviews about people having real problems with your addon.  I thought this was solved a couple of months ago.  Most of these negative reviews are people having real problems with your addon (like me) and some have written into your tech support for help (like me) and may or may not have got help for there problems.  I've worked in a highly technical field for many years and this type of practice that business do just to get better rating gets me upset.  If you want better ratings, try fixing the problems you have with you product.  I've been keeping a daily eye out on people writing reviews for your product on this site or others sites, and I notice that a lot of these customers were using older versions of ghostery, with little or no complaints, until they switch to ghostery v7.  Some of these complaints were new customer using ghostery v7 for the first time and had problems right away.  These people are real customers, not statistics on some web site.  Communicate with them!!!  Work with them!!! Just don't ignore them and delete them!!!  I've been a long time ghostery user with no complaints about ghostery until ghostery v7 came out.  Like it or not, ghostery v7 has problems, that many people writing these reviews have told you.  STOP IGNORING PEOPLE AND FIX YOUR PRODUCT.  Because I thought ghostery before version 7 was good, I will give you three stars.

Dishonest Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hey Ghostery - instead of deleting 1 and 2-star reviews, complaining about it no longer functioning, why not post and leave visible an acknowledgement that it's being worked on?

You're creating an entirely false impression that there are no major issues; this isn't accidental.

Ghostery folgt dem Schicksal anderer guter Apps Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Nicht nur, dass Ghostery seit einiger Zeit zentral Daten sammelt (was es ja eigentlich verhindern soll!), werden nun auch einzelne Tracker standard-mäßig NICHT blockiert (trotz der Einstellung "neue Tracker blockieren"). Das Verhalten folgt dem Schema von Ad-Block Plus. Vermutlich sind hier Geldgeber im Hintergrund, welche dadurch die Konkurrenz blocken. Hoffe, das bald wieder eine saubere Alternative erscheint.

I'm like everyone else...Doesn't work.

Re-configuring Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ghostery may have an ugly problem with Firefox: missing a few tracker, although add-on has always loaded the latest Tracker list.
There must have been a script, which manipulates the list when FF starts.
About support: has helped. However, had to reinstall all add-ons and re-configure everything.

Kleine Probleme Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fehler-Lösung ;)

Ghostery hat vielleicht zusammen mit Firefox ein hässliches Problem:
Wenn ich diesen Link nach einem Neustart geklickt habe,

dann haben immer wieder in den oberen 3 Rubriken ein paar Tracker gefehlt, obwohl Ghostery immer die neueste Tracker-Liste geladen hat.

Es muss sich ein Script eingenistet gehabt haben, welches beim Start von FF die Liste manipuliert.

about:support Firefox bereinigen...

hat geholfen. Allerdings alle AddOns neu installieren und alles neu konfigurieren.

Solche Extensions wird man damit auch los:


OS ist Ubuntu 16.04

Excellant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is amazing how much of our online use is monitored. This program shows us and allows us to block it all for each site. It is great to use!
