what i do?
i hate, hate, HATE flash ads
absolutely hate the buggers. they slow every single page down (not just her but on yahoo too) since the page doesn't load until they do and if they'er on a slow server, yep takes a minuet for the page to load
how i get rid of it? (oh and i have yet to see this poltergeist ad)
manage add ons
let that load. look for 'macromedia shockwave player' and disable it
you will have to reload the page but presto changeo all flash ads will not play
now the down side, go to a site like scifi.com and it's unusuable since thier menu's are built into the flash ads...but just reverse it
tools, manage add ons, enable flash player and you got it back
simple way to avoid the flash crud while still allowing static ads through (which i don't mind)
flash is evil and should be banned!!!!!!!!
