I’m running Firefox 1.0.6 and have installed Adblock.
Lately, when I use sites like the IMDB and CNN and click on a link (on CNN) or do a search (on IMDB), I see the line “Connecting to servedby.advertising.com”. This causes the site to hang up for a minute or more.
Can I use AdBlock to get rid of this problem?
I can’t say for certain, but I don’t seem to have that problem on either of those sites.
I installed Adblock Filterset.G a couple of months ago and I’ve been really pleased with it. It automatically blocks most of the common ad sites and images, and updates itself every week.
I highly recommend it to anyone that has Adblock installed.
Cool! That did the job! Thanks.
Word of warning, Filterset. G has a line blocking Amazon and the other book sites. I have occasionally had a problem with those sites until I deleted that line. Not often but once in a while.
