    ummm, Ghostery on Play store is 'no good' ??

    I have now defaulted to only using Ghostery as my browser of choice on my Note 4...

    I have since uninstalled Firefox, AdBlock, Boat, Dolphin,. and others......
    they just did not perform as I feel a browser should perform.

    If Ghostery puts up a pay for copy, that should be OK. If it's following the procedure on FX to monetize, I wouldn't trust it until I could see exactly what it was allowing.

    I want a browser that uses NoScript and blocks images per site and on the fly.

    I don't use FX. I dislike Australis. I want my old-style tool bars. I use Pale Moon which is now Goanna rather than Gecko based. I can block images and JS with Dolphin, but not per site. I'm waiting for Vivaldi to become a little less beta to check it out.

    What happened to noscript? It is no longer an add on either. Ghostery and noscript are both gone. Why?

    Ghostery became a browser on its' own, and I assume that they pulled the addon from Firefox

    I've still got the Ghostery add-on on my phone's Firefox. Mind you, it isn't showing in the addons catalogue, so I guess I'd better not uninstall it.

    (I do mainly use the Ghostery browser on my phone anyway).
