    Well, Firefox alone isn't enough. You also need AdBlock, or even better AdBlock Plus (with a properly configured subscription to a good master blocking list set up).

    Er... um. In theory. I mean I love this site and want to help support it! I wouldn't DARE block those Ads that help it pay for itself. Nope. Nada. Never. Nil.

    For what it's worth, some of the FORT banner ads at the top are getting blocked by the company firewall here. The relevant part of the notice says:

    URL: http://ad2.adecn.com/here.spot?v=2.2...=1216084577365
    Reason: Known disease vector
    I do work for a computer security company, so they probably know what they're talking about.

    Well, I didn't do anything different to my computer...mostly because I'm technologically challenged...but I came back on about 20 minutes ago and haven't had a pop-up at all. Hopefully it was just a one night thing {fingers and toes crossed}.

    Actually, I have ABP running and still have the problem.
    Getting lost will help you find yourself.

    I just had one popup, but I hit the back button and went right back to where I was.

    I got a "audio" pop up add just now. All of a sudden this music started playing, I thought it was my clock but it was an ad for Heineken beer.

    Annoying for sure, but I bet it is the wave of the future....

    I had one last night. It was like a continuous re-load strip. My cursor wouldn't stay still - it had the heebie jeebies. Finally the ad came up and I was able to close it. I sure hope this type ad isn't the wave of the future.
