Ghostery no longer works with Palemoon 26.x.x

Unread post by fusion01 » 2016-03-04, 21:46

Since Ghostery is geared to work with Firefox and not Palemoon specifically, will there be an update on Palemoon's end to address the incompatibility? I loved Ghostery and just now realized it wasn't even working when I went to the extentions to do an add on for something unrelated to Ghostery. It just said it was disabled and not compatible with Palemoon 26 and above.

Have you considered using ublock origin which works just fine in pale moon.Better extension than ghostery IMO.

Moonraker, not familiar with that but I might check that out. Is Moonchild working on an update to make Ghostery compatible again? I loved how that worked. I'm not a big fan of having to learn new software to do what the old software did either.

I don't use Ghostery myself, but I could've sworn I've seen references to an older version working. Ah yes ... search is your friend:

Have you tried version 5.4.4.1 of Ghostery?

Use 2.9.6.1. That one is a good and much less buggy version of it.

FYI, here's a recent thread with useful information on Ghostery:

The link is to the most recent post, but would strongly suggest to read the whole thread.
