To block an Ad, you first need to have an Ad to block. When you find one, you should be able to roll over it and there will be a small tab that pops up labeled Block.

Click the tab and a window will appear showing the details of the Ad. Click Add Filter. After you reload the page, the site will load like the Ad was never there.
