The probable answer is NO, but I was replying to the statement which 
implied that Ghostery helped to solve the problem with cookies. Ghostery 
doesn't appear to solve the cookie problem mentioned in the thread - but 
I am not an expert; all I stated was that even though I have using 
Ghostery for months the BetterPrivacy found 2 pages of cookies - and I 
also have FF set to delete all cookies when I close FF.
