Windows 7: Ghostery Blocking Content

Ghostery Blocking Content

I've just recently started using Ghostery, which is an Opera extension for blocking tracking bugs while browsing. It seems to be fine for most browsing, but when trying to make an eBay purchase, or when Mr. Rebates tries to hand me off to TigerDirect, I get a somewhat obscure alert saying that the content was blocked, and to use the details button to allow it, but when I use the details button, all I see is a blank window, which I think has an add button, however, I don't know what to add...the specific bug being blocked or the url of either Mr. Rebate or TigerDirect.

I can work around this by disabling Ghostery long enough to make the transaction, but that becomes rather tedious. Can someone either tell me how to add the right thing to the details window, or how to determine exactly which bug to enable? Since it has a list of 756 bugs, I really don't want to have to go through them one at a time.
