Ads on planetgamecube.com very annoying!
« on: September 29, 2004, 07:10:17 PM »
Not only do they block the article so you can't read it. One of the GoArmy! ads has a very annoying helicopter sound.  On my connection (56k) the close button doesn't load till a long time.  Glad I can mute, but then my music gets muted, too.

Sigh...

I just got FireFox 1.0, how do you turn on ad blocking and how do I make it so that when I click on a lick (ex. spreadfoxfire.com link that Mario posted) it opens in a new tab instead of a new window?

Yes it is, but my middle button is the scroll wheel, and it will also close a tab if you click the tab.
