flashers

Mozilla Firefox, the hugely popular free Internet browser has a built-in pop-up blocker.

Open the Menu, Click on “preferences”, then “Content” and check the box [x] Block pop-up windows.

The problem is you still get annoying, dancing, moving garbage ads.

Today I got fed up enough to bang around looking to put a stop to that, or at least some more of it than the built-in pop-up blocker was doing for me.

I am very pleased with what I found.

Once again, Open menu, but this time go to “Add-ons”.

Now enter “flash” in the search box at the top right.

The list of choices is impressive. Click the “More” button to learn about them. Pay attention to the number of downloads and ratings users have given it.

I installed and activated “Shockwave Flash”. It is a thing of beauty. The annoying flash plays are gone.

I have only an hours-worth of experience with it. I did not try any others. I am definitely not an expert. Others might be better or worse. I do not recommend this flash stopper over the competition.

But

I LOVE Shokwave Flash.

If those flashers are bothering you, don’t put up with them any longer.
