Irritating b.ashx pop-up

Okay so I was a little unsure where to post this. When I log onto myspace every time I go to a new page such as my page comments, bulletin, or someone else’s page I get a little pop-up that reads Opening b.ashx asking if I want to open or save the file. This is a small annoying problem. Any ideas on how to stop this?

It’s something in the page source code. I looked for it eg:

ipt type="text/javascript">
MySpace.BeaconData={"dsid":"2","dsv":"1","rd":"browseusers.myspace.com","rqs":"","refpg":"/Browse/Browse.aspx","rpf":"Browse","d":"www.myspace.com","qs":"fuseaction=user.viewProfile&vanity=stepho78","pf":"UserViewProfile","cip":"1467980730","pc":"en-GB","pid":"392085595641040295","pidf":"0","ABtd":"0","t":"1244180620147","ct":"","ci":"Telford","st":"O2","co":"GB","dmac":"0","uff":"0","uatv":"Firefox 3.0.10","sip":"171971858","uid":"0","pggd":"566531a0-6e4f-447c-8003-d9c36050bf4b","prid":"40926372","ili":"0","at":"-1","cfv":"","sliu":"0","kvp":""}
MySpace.BeaconAddress="http://b.myspace.com/**b.ashx**?";

I don’t use myspace and tried it for you and had what you report.

try Opera browser, works better.
It’s in the non-oss repo

Will do. I prefer opera anyways :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks, I will try opera.

I used to use it with Windows and was pretty happy with it.
