Angry To admin re: Nulo pop-up

Can someone PLEASE get rid of that damn Nulo pop-up that just won't STOP pooping up!!!!!! It is REALLY ANNOYING!!!! If my cat were overweight I would not buy it any faster because it popped up a million times; in fact that would give me an aversion to it so I probably would not WANT to buy it. Am I the only one that feels this way?

Don't count on it being gotten rid of. This site is obviously here for ad revenues, as the admin only pops in to post new articles, and seldomly at that. Just block the sites using AdBlock in Firefox as I did before I even joined the place...

If I did that, it wouldn't block out the cat forum itself would it? (Excuse my electronically-challenged self). Also, I have a Mac computer. Is Adblock and Firefox just for Windows? If so, I don't have Windows--
I have written to Nulo directly out of frustration. Anyway, thank you for your time.

Firefox is for all platforms

This is the mac installer for 3.6.8 (the latest version) http://www.mozilla.com/products/down...osx&lang=en-US

This is the AdBlock addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865/

When you get it installed, go to the ABP button on the far right of the toolbars, and go to preferences. Add the following sites to BLOCK

*.kontera.com
*.fastclick.net
*.overture.com
*.exponential.com
*.5min.com
*.zedo.net

And enjoy freedom of the cat forum without ads COMPLETELY.

I'm not sure if I did it right, but it seems to be working. What is all that about subscribed filters? I didn't understand what it means. I had to subscribe to someone else's filters? Does that endanger my security in any way? If it does I will uninstall the adblock, though, wow it is nice.

I don't bother with subscribing to others filters.. Basically it's just filters that others have created (sites to block, etc) so you don't have to add each one manually as new sites appear... And no, it does nothing to your security... If anything, enhances it so those ad sites can't grab any info about your computer.

Okay well I've run into a problem. Since I've added the ad blocker, the photobucket account isn't working right. now what do I do?

I better check my youtube account too. <sigh>



<edit>Never mind I figured it out! I can just disable adblocker when I want to do something in photobucket, then reenable after. cool

Makes a huge difference when loading yahoo mail. those ads made my mail take forever to load!

I highly recommend this to everyone, thank you Brandon. You've mentioned it several times over time here, but I've always felt too technically challenged to try to figure it out.

It did not take up any space on my hard drive, and as you said, it has speeding things up considerably since I don't have to wait for ads to load on any site.

Amazing!

One more question: will it automatically update, when Firefox updates?

Yes, it will bring up your add-ons window before firefox starts once a month (if that often) and it will be updated from there.
