I stuck Ghostery on my main computer. slowed down the computer incredibly on many of the sites I visit I could get the text but not the photos. Some of the sites would only show me 2 or 3 posts and then nothing else. Just wondering if this is normal for ghostery? Took it off and every thing is back to normal. if any thing can be normal for this old man.

Given that ghostery blocks Javascript, it surprises me not at all that the web went to a crawling shambles. There are a lot of sites that are loaded with Javascript. In other words, it did exactly what you asked it to.

Yes it did what it was designed to do, and did it very well!
