Check out adding "Ad Nauseum" and "TrackMeNot" to your browser.  It is available for Firefox.
"But he that doth not believe, is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn 3:18)."

"If what they are saying is true, the problem is not that they are the ones saying it: the problem is that we are not the ones saying it."

I finally had to disable and remove Ghostery after almost of year of hang ups that seemed to start with their upgrades about 8 months ago.  I wasn't able to determine the cause, but it had to be incompatibility with my OS and/or other security measures installed.  It became a royal pita.

I'm testing James' suggestions w/Firefox.

  Opposite approach.  It blocks trackers and ads.  Doesn't help with search tracking.  Ghostery/TrackMeNot would be a decent approach.

Ad Nauseum does the opposite of ghostery.  It clicks on every ad (behind the scenes) and rat holes all responses and cookies.  There is no way to nail down whether you are a man or woman, age, clothing tastes, etc...  I prefer this option myself.
