Anyway, moving on to the topic. I use Google Chrome with adblock and have yet to see any ads on here.

Also wolf, maybe try noscript instead of adblock? Noscript is a bit anoying at first (it blocks all Java and embedded objects in almost all sites) but as you start allowing things that you know are safe on sites you visit, it starts to become seamless. I haven't tried yescript but it basically works the oposite way. There's a blacklist of known pop-up, phishing kinda java and it blocks that by default but allows everything else. At the moment I prefer noscript.
Yeah, but where would I get all my extra side jobs if people didn't click on those nice little pop up boxes?

Some forms of it require a good amount of command line knowledge, but Linux Mint is pretty nice and easy to use upon install.

In both cases, the computer would not boot to windows and from the DOS screen I had to select the option to "start windows from last known working configuration". On both systems this worked and I fully uninstalled firefox and both computers now run fas like they used to without glitches. I am running XP.

I used to love firefox, but this is a repeatable problem with 2 independent machines so I will not use firefox again. I am running Safari from Apple right now and seems pretty decent.

poutanen Firefox plus Noscript... only thing I see is a little bit of text above the photo of the day that offers affordable web hosting.
