I just found the best extension for firefox. Its called Ad Blocker. It blocks ads on web sites. All you do is click on a tab near the ad and poof the ad can't come up again. Now no more annoying ads when I visit web sites. If a tab dont come up you can right click on an ad and block it that way.

Another alternative involves tweaking Firefox's config a little bit. Check out this link:

I am using the solution listed there and have no undesired pop-ups so far. Regular banner ads and such don't bother me though.

Ad Blocker is good, it can also block flash banner ads, which you can't block using the normal 'block images from <site>' method. I've blocked so many ads that when I goto a site and people complain about ads, I just shrug because I don't have that many. Firefox is cool.

Well, although I use the Adblock plugin myself, too, I wonder how long it will take now until there are no free web hosting providers anymore. Because if everyone just blocks the ads they get no cash for their hosted sites and so they'll suspend free hosting...

Would be sad, but I guess that's the way things are

The filter list is key for the operation of Adblock. I use the filter list from this page and it works really well. I would recommend anyone else try it out. Just snag the latest one and import it into your filters list.

Well, it's not as bad as you might think. Pop ups are getting very creative now. Like those internal pop ups. Plus, new technology for popup freaks have allowed them to compromise both IE and Mozilla popup blocker. But, the beauty about mozilla is that it has a buil-in directory where you can add new urls to rid yourself of those that get through. ^_^

I hate filter list of other site because it doesn't block ads of my site..so is better make it yourself

I use adblock aswell. It's great, but if you let the list get too long then Firefox's performance will take a major hit.

No worries, there will always be enough computer-illiterate people to fill the gap. I know people who still attempt to close banner adds that resemble windows.

Something that many of you might find interesting:

http://www.everythingisnt.com/hosts.html

It swaps your existing hosts file with a a redirect for a few hundred ad servers so the requests are just simply sent back to your machine instead of to the actual server.

He even has a posted example of the file. It's just text. No software. No bloat. Just text.

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
