How to get rid of certain advertisements
« on: October 08, 2007, 08:28 PM »
I was at this free wireless zone where I buy a coffee and you can use the wireless.

This is a great way check a few sites when you are out and about.

But just today, I noticed that they started taking over about 7% of the real estate at the bottom of each page.

I could block the advertising graphics. But that did not release the "hijacked" screen real estate.

I examine the html code on the page with the Firefox Firebug Addon and in fact I can get back my screen real estate by deleting the relevant code, but each time I refresh, the real estate gets taken over again.

Does anyone knows of a Firefox Addon that can help me block all this pesky squatters and reclaim the real estate.

Thanks

I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about, but if it's loading in a frame, Adblock can let you block entire iframes instead of just images and scripts.

Thanks Kuntau and Deozaan for your responses.

I disabled Adblock Addon and Installed Adblock Plus (a more advanced version) http://adblockplus.org/en/

Did a little tweaking and now I can just concentrate on the coffee and surfing without distractions.
