If you use the Firefox web browser, you can enhance it by installing the free Adblock Plus add-on. After you install this add-on, you can have it block all those annoying advertising images and banner ads you see on web sites.
You can install the free add-on from the Adblock Plus web site.
After you've re-started Firefox, the easy way to start blocking ads is to choose from a list of filters that will block most advertisements automatically.
You can also manually block ads by right-clicking on it, and then choosing "Adblock" from the context menu.
