    Default How can I block adds in firefox?

    I'm getting a pesky add in a page. I can block the images, but then I get
    an empty window from them. That is not it, I want to block everything from
    them.

    http://adserving.cpxadroit.com/*

    Is there a way?


    They load a flash from their clients, which I have to kill one by one, but
    it loads another one.

    Perhaps block the name in the DNS?

    Hi
    I use adblock which seems to clean out all the ones I want. Do you have
    a actual link that calls the page?

    Install the Adblock Pro add-on for Firefox. You'll probably need to add
    a filter to block the parent page's script - but I wouldn't be surprised
    if some of the default filters took care of that.

    Alternatively, don't use Firefox.

    True! I use SeaMonkey but still need to install the Adblock plus extension, and as far as I know there are no browsers that block ads without an extension. I could be wrong.

    Then you just need to find a plugin for your other browser (I use ABP for
    Chrome as well)

    I am using "flashblock" and "noscript" extensions. Either of those would probably block the flash ads. Of the two, "flashblock" is the easier to use. It replaces every flash item with a button, and you don't see it unless you click the button.

    Ok, I just installed it and managed to block the add, with a manual rule. Phew!

    Thanks for the idea.

    I think that FF should have a native method to reject downloading from
    sites manually listed. At least that, it can block images and popups already.


    I see that adblock wanted to register me to something about a list, so I
    said "no", not knowing what it is about.

    Hi
    That's a list of common rules to block all the annoying ads, known
    phishing sites etc of the bat. I use easylist....

    It seems to want me to register to a list of filters of some kind, so I
    said no - I'm always suspicious of things like registering without previous
    info.
