WordPress v. Ghostery

Sometime in the last few weeks (or months…) WordPress stopped working properly for me. The stats page wouldn’t load, the entry editor didn’t seem to work (the toolbar wasn’t displayed), and none of the gravatar user icon thingies were being rendered.

Through a process of elimination it became obvious that Ghostery was the problem, but it wasn’t enough of a hassle to spend time understanding (yes, i’ve been posting by writing html, just like the good ole days). Today i whitelisted the Gravatar Widgets and things seem to be back to normal. The WordPress Analytics can apparently stay blocked with no ill effects.

I’d imagine that this is all documented somewhere in the WordPress forums, but finding anything up to date in there is always a horror show.
