Tip & How-To about Mozilla Firefox

How do I block annoying facebook adverts on Mozilla Firefox Browser ?

How to block Facebook adverts within the Firefox browser:

1. Go to this page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865
2. Click: Add To Firefox
3. Wait for Install button to become active then click it.
4. Restart Firefox.
5. When Firefox opens, you should see a tab: Add Adblock Plus Filter subscription
6. If you want to block ads on many other sites, click the button next to EasyList (USA), then click Subscribe.
7. Under the Tools menu in Firefox, select Adblock Plus Preferences.
8. Click the Add Filter button.

9. Copy and paste the following filters
facebook.com#*(social_ad)
facebook.com#*(social_ad_advert)
facebook.com#*(sponsors)
facebook.com#*(class=adcolumn)
facebook.com#*(banner_ad)
facebook.com#*(adcolumn_wrapper)
facebook.com#*(home_sponsor_nile)
and click OK.

10. Close Firefox, then open it and go to Facebook. Adblock Plus should block all Facebook adverts

You can use the subscribed lists as well EasyList and Dr.Evil have good blocking lines and you can check which ones have worked in the Adblock addon options

how to uninstall the chavibes application???


You can check out Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Windows XP) or Control Panel > Programs And Features (Vista / 7) and try finding 'Chatvibes' there and Uninstall it.

If you are unable to find it there then you can Disable it (Firefox only) by going to Add Ons and click the disable/Uninstall button next to Chatvibes App Addon.
