Having just updated to Firefox 1.5, I find I have now gained an additional nuisance in the shape of `Ads By Goooogle`.Is there any way of suppressing these as they are not only in the right margin but infringe on the page I`m attempting to read. I didn`t have this problem with version 1.0.
Don't know why it's changed but try the Customise Google extension.
Firstly, I must apologise to the power-that-be for suggesting this, but here it is:Install Adblock.Then, instead of right-clicking on the banner, just go to Adblock's prefs and add this string:click hereYou have to do it this way, because each page's banner has a unique URL. You could be right-clicking all day long and never actually block them!NOTE: Don't try the "allow images from originating site only" option in Firefox's prefs, because this does not work on i-frames.
SkyverWhere do I find the `Customise Google extension`?ade.hI have downloaded/installed Adblock. I`m presuming you suggest I add `Nothing to see here!` (from your link)in the Prefs, am I correct?
Try ade.h's solution first - simpler in the end. Right click the Adblock text in the bottom right of your Firefox window, select Preferences, type the text into the `add new filter` box, click Done.Customise Google;click here
Not exactly, John.In the Adblock prefs, in the box for entering a new string, pop in the above URL that has, inevitably, turned into a hyperlink. That way, all extensions of this parent URL will be blocked.
I put the URL in and it had an immediate effect - no more ads.Another lesson learned. Hope I can remember all these or I will be printing out a lot of my postings!!!Thanks again.
