The banner at the bottom of the page. Is IVillage trying to chase us away?

Chased me away once this morning.....but I had something to say....
I am now looking for a recipe....but it may be easier to go to another site.

Adblock Plus

AdBlock Plus works with FireFox, Chrome and IE.

I use Chrome solely and I don't see any ads. It's well worth your time to download it.

I tried Firefox with adblock, and it's there, too. We have an ancient computer, and the newer versions of things don't work on our computer. *sigh* One of these days we'll get a new one, but there's other priorities now.

Adblock Plus and the easy list. Adblock alone won't do it.

I've had the same problem today. And I have Adblock Plus.
Sushipup, what is Easy List?

Sally, a refurbished/second hand computer is very very cheap.

Try ebay or Goodwill.

Easy List is part of Adblock Plus. It's either automatic or you check on it to install along with ADP

I uninstalled Adblock Plus and installed it again. And the ad is now gone.

What banner? I'm using Firefox.

Opera has content blocker built in so you don't have to patch it like Firefox and the others. Just click on what you want to block and say goodbye. You can download starter lists too for getting your filtering going.

I had forgotten about this. Luckily, later in the day the bottom banner was gone.

DH is all about Macs, so yes, you can buy refurbished Macs, but the word cheap doesn't apply to them. Less expensive, yes, but not cheap. I do want to look into that, though.

In the mean time, I hope they powers that be came to their senses and will not use that type of ad again. Maybe it was a malfunction.
