    What are you using for adblock on FF... I need it on a machine, but I can't get it to work with the latest version of FF... Now I remember why I love opera. :rolleyes:

    I use the userContent.css file instead. No need to install something when you can just edit a file.

    Code:
    /* Block ads, biznatch! */

    dunno how the FF one works, but in opera, the adblock plugin is simply a quick python script that auomates adding an entry to the user.css file...

    does editing the css files keep the images from downloading?

    Doesn't FF come with an adblocker already? Or is an adblocker somehow different from a popup blocker?

    Ah. I guess that's useful, though I would feel almost bad about depriving free websites of their only source of income. I can live with a few banners.

    Personally, the userContent.css is your best option. No messing around with installations...
