How to fix Pandora + Chrome + Ghostery

I was having issues with Pandora.com, but only in Chrome, and I have Ghostery installed.

Thanks to a tweet by @KyleMaxwell, I figured out two ways to fix it, neither of which are totally ideal.

  • Method 1: Unblock ScoreCard Research. Go into Chrome's preferences (chrome://extensions), then Extensions, then click on Ghostery's Options link. In Blocking Options, find ScoreCard Research Beacon. Finally, hit Save at the very bottom.

  • Method 2: Whitelist Pandora.com. Like the above, go into Chrome's preferences (chrome://extensions), then Extensions, then click on Ghostery's Options link. Scroll to the bottom, and type "pandora.com" as a URL to whitelist, and click Add. Finally, hit Save at the very bottom.

Personally, I simply whitelist Pandora.com because I don't want ScoreCard tracking me on other sites, but I'm okay with Pandora being the only site that tracks me.
