Ghostery chrome extension hides random numbers?

Why can't see the random numbers unless I pause the ghostery extension?

I'm not sure what "random numbers" you are referring to.

But if I understand correctly, "Ghostery" blocks website actions that it is configured to prevent and/or actions that it considers a security risk.

If you are creating scripted programs that run in your browser, it's quite likely that scripted functionality could be misinterpreted (or maybe correctly interpreted!) as something it should block.

Oh, sorry. Thought it attached the question to the lesson. It's in JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects "What are Loops" section. With the code I was writing along with the video, it only worked after pausing ghostery. This is the code.

function randomNumber(upper) {
  return Math.floor( Math.random() * upper ) + 1;
}
var counter = 0;
while (counter < 10) {
  var randNum = randomNumber (6);
  document.write(randNum + " ");
  counter += 1;
}
