    Changed reply in topic of Newcomer by Bobcat to Hi Tilda, So Ghostery is a browser extension that shows you all the companies that are tracking you when you visit a website. What we do is that we let you learn more about those companies and the kinds of data they collect, and block them from collecting data. You can expect Ghostery to sometimes block certain advertisements from loading on social media sites, that's not to say we block all ads though. We just block tracking scripts that can stop an ad from loading, therefore creating a more faster loadtime for the website itself. (faster browsing experience) I hope this information helps :)! Best, Bobcat.

    Changed reply in topic of Privacy, Protection & Blocking Trackers when signing in... by Bobcat to Hi Keen, Try unblocking the tracker Janrain and log in. Let me know if that helps at all. That particular tracker seems to be causing the issue for that particular website. Thanks! Best, Bobcat.

    Changed reply in topic of Ghostery 5.4.9 does not work with Firefox 42... still! by Blender to Hello Paul! I would recommend the following steps: 1) Download an older version of Firefox (Firefox 41 is probably best). 2) This should allow Ghostery's options to be opened. Open them. 3) Go to the "Advanced" tab in the Ghostery window that pops up. 4) Make sure the box next to the phrase "Not ready for the new panel? Revert to the old menu temporarily (restart required)" is unchecked. 5) Click "Save" at the bottom of the page. 6) Install Firefox 42. That should fix everything. Just make sure not to switch to the old panel! Have a great day!.

    Changed reply in topic of Bazaarvoice blocked after being whitelisted by Bobcat to Hi DanoTheOverlord,<br />&nbsp; Thanks for sending me an example.<br />So I tried this out on my firefox browser, and it is true that at first, Bazaarvoice does not show up when you whitelist, pause tracking, and allow the tracker.<br /><br />However, I refreshed it again once and the reviews actually show up (Bazaarvoice module). Can you let me know which version of Ghostery are you using and also for Firefox?<br />Are you using the most updated versions for both?<br /><br />Let me know :)<br />Thanks.<br /><br />-Bobcat.
