    The latest version of Ghostery is not compatible with the Firefox I am using, which is
    Firefox 45.9.1 Some older versions of Ghostery are available for download at this link.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ghostery/versions/

    After downloading one of these from the link given how can I install it as an extension to the Firefox browser. There are also links to Github on this page for older Versions of Ghostery.

    No no,basicly drag the ghostery file that you downloaded to the place where the tabs are and drop it a place where there are no tabs opened

    Thank you - it got installed but it is not working. The oldest versions shown at the above link go back only up to Sept. 2016, and there it says I need to have Firefox 48 and later for it to work. Since I use Firefox 45 I need help to find Ghostery versions earlier than 7.0.0.113 (Sept. 2016).

    Github has this page - https://github.com/jonpierce/ghostery - but I just can't find the file there.
