Pantene Ad prevents reading forum posts

colorcrazyMarch 3, 2013

Is anyone else being blocked by repetitive Pantene advertisements? Very annoying. Really miss the old days with Spike as the moderator.

Nope... I block all the ads.

colorcrazy, what browser are you using? There's a browser add-on called AdBlocker that will block most ads on most websites, including this one. I don't see any ads on this site since I installed it.

However, it only works with Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Android. There are ad blockers for Internet Explorer, but I have never used them, so can't recommend anything.

I was about to stop coming here at all, due to those page-covering ads, until I installed AdBlocker.

And I realize that this post sounds like an ad for AdBlocker, but it isn't. It's just that I've tried it and it works and I feel like sharing the joy of no ads.

Camlin, I agree, I use FF and adblocker plus and the easy list. On the rare occasion I have to block one, I just right click and opt for a filter. I also block the decorative pictures and it all loads faster.

Thank you very much! I just added Adblocker for FireFox. Yay!

CC you need adblock plus, then ad the easy list. I think FF has one, but I google ricks easy list or the original easy list because I don't know about the one that FF has. Below easy list is a privacy list, I add that also.

Here is a link that might be useful: Easy List
