Run "adblock plus" and your problems will end.

I don't even have a specific ad blocker application.  I just have my browser settings set to prevent popup ads (using Chrome and Firefox).  I never, ever see popup ads here on FSM.  You should be able to do the same thing.

I just installed the AdBlock plug-in for Google Chrome and I get no ads of any kind on any page.  So nice to finally be able to type out a post here without having some side-bar ad stealing focus from the typing window and making me type things over again.

Nice.  Ok, i know im a litte OCD and a lot of other stuff :)  I dont mind apps too much, but ive read what some of them "steal" , etc. when they are used.  Extensions and add on's too.  Not that i have anything top secret or the like, its just that with all these things floating around one is never too sure of what they are actually putting on the computer....

I put in Security Badger for Firefox, it works as an ad on but catches things way in the background  through something a bit different ( supposedly) than many ad blockers do. I don't know except that it works very smoothly. It's currently blocking 18 ads or background activity on this page right now as I type. The last page at this site was 2 if I recall correctly. Another site this morning was 6. I have it on my phone too, security Badger for Android I think it is. I figured I'd try it, it's free and if I didn't like it I'd uninstall it. I like it, been on here most of this year so far.
