Hate new Popup Video Ads Answered

I was just startled by the popping up of some football video ad. Pretty misplaced if you ask me. But just jarring and unappreciated. I know that Instructables has to support itself somehow. Just wish there were a less jarring and invasive way to do that.

Kelseymh, I'm wondering if that's for Windows machines, Macs, or both?

I've never seen them. Be like me:

1. Get Firefox
2. Install AdBlock Plus.
3. See no ads.

I already subscrobed. But I'm not a preeeeeeemium member yet. Maybe I hadn't signed in yet, because I was using my newly upgraded version of Safari.

Having trouble doing that with my Macintosh running OS X 10.5.8 and Firefox 3.0.6. AdBlock Plus seems to require Firefox 3.0.12
Ah well. Thanks for the tip on AdBlock Plus.

The current version of Firefox (which includes a number of patches for known exploits) is 3.6.10.
