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

I think it was add-ons. It was the "filter" question.


need more info. it's possible adblock may be the problem. if you are using adblock, click on the red octagon on the upper right of the page your looking to restore. click the down arrow on the right side of the adblock and make your change.

I have 2 pop up ads that periodicaly pop up even after I have closed the ad window. How do I permanently delete them ?


It sounds like your computer might be infected with spy- and/or malware. The easiest way to get rid of this is to use a free program like Adaware (or any other similar program). Adaware is made by Lavasoft, a simple google search should get you a download.

Another option might be to get an add-on for Firefox called "AdBlock Plus". I've been using it myself for years to block out unwanted adds and I do believe it also kills certain popups.

I get ads on or beside my email and some time its hard to read it all


Download and install the latest version of firefox once installed click on the 'Tools' menu, select 'Add-ons' and type 'adblock plus' in the search window at the top right. Install the new add-on, restart firefox (close it and reopen it) and choose easylist USA (or whatever the default subscription is) and accept it. Once this is done you can choose to block images and ads on web pages (it will also automatically block known ads) by right-clicking on a picture or ad and selecting adblock plus: Block image

Solution 1...
Clear your cache and delete all of your cookies in your browser.

Solution 2...
In your browser, type in the address bar http://www.facebook.com/login (which doesnt exist)
This will take you to a different login page which reads: "The page you requested was not found."
At the top of this page is a login box. Try using this login box to login to facebook.
.
Solution 3...
Download Firefox 3.5 and used that instead of Internet Explorer.
here is the link for downloading it
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html
.
Tip: If you are using the Adblock extension with Firefox, and subscribe to an ad list (basically a list of known ads online), it blocks a special site (fbcdn.net)
that Facebook uses to login.
.
Tip: Go to: http://www.facebook.com/login.php (the page you are having trouble logging in) and click on the
Adblock Stop Sign on top of Firefox, and you will see in red a url that includes
fbcdn.net. Right click on that, and add an exception for the entire fbcdn.net domain.
Reload the page. This should fix the problem.
.
Solution 4...
Use a Proxy Server to connect to Facebook.com
1. Search Proxy in GOOGLE
2. Select Proxy Server
3. Type in facebook.com (in the proxy server webpage)
4. login into facebook account
5. (although all games will work but Farmville may have problems loading)

No matter how many times I manage the add-on thing, the bar keeps coming on my screen saying "Internet Explorer is currently running with add-ons disabled. Blah, blah, blah." Every time I fix it, it does...


First thing to do is to download the latest Internet Explorer or other browser like Mozilla Firefox. After you download it, Install the latest browser, I recommend Mozilla Firefox. It is faster and more secure than Internet Explorer. It helps prevent unwanted pop ups and prevent unwanted programs to get into your computer.To be much more secure install an ADBLOCK software into the mozilla browser.

Mozilla Firefox: www.mozilla.com
ADBLOCK software: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/1136
