Re: If I am a site supporter, why am I seeing flat tummy adds?

First off, holy toolbars!

Second, you're using internet explorer - that's about 95% of your problem. IE is horrible, and doesn't have the versatility of other browsers.

Take a look at my screenshot of my browser - see if you can notice the difference:


Note how the only ads I have on there are the ones for the specific forums? That's courtesy of Adblock Plus, an addon for a browser called Mozilla Firefox. If I really wanted to get fancy, I could block the individual forums ones too, but they are hand picked and hand approved by the mods/admins here, so I trust them to be ok. The ones that are either objectionable or cause serious slowdown or even allow viruses in are the ones served by third parties - probably the main cash generators for our beloved DS, but because they're not approved by our admins and are served by other people, they can be a problem.

How to block the ads yourself:

1. Download and install Mozilla Firefox - the link is above.

2. Use it to surf the web from now on. When you first load it, it should give you the option to import your favorites from IE. This will not harm IE at all, so others can still use it.

3. Download adblock plus. The option to browse Addons is on the tools menu at the top, and the third option down. When the second window opens, if Adblock Plus is not one of the options, click the link to browse all addons. It'll be one of the first ones on there - easily the hands down favorite addon for obvious reasons. You may have to restart either your computer, firefox or both to get the addon to install.

Once both are installed, enjoy being ad free! If ever you see an offensive ad that the blocker didn't get on it's own, or even a picture that you don't like, you can always right click on it and select the option to block it, never to see it again. It makes surfing the internet a MUCH more pleasant experience, and ups the security on your computer, as a good number of virus infestations come from poorly written or malicious ad serving code.

Guys---seriously--I know it is hard to make a change. I refused to try Mozilla Firefox for the longest time, but dh finally convinced me to just TRY IT OUT.

I swear you will never go back to Internet Explorer!!! I don't see ads on Facebook, Yahoo, Google, Diaperswappers, etc.

NO ADS.

I never ever get viruses or trojans. I love the simplicity of Firefox, although there are plenty of bells and whistles if you want them!

I was/am using Firefox and I still got the ads with the site supporter and nothing changed when I canceled it.

I have seen 2 new tummy ads today and they are worse then the ones before. I am not trying to be snarky but why are these so hard to get rid of OUR are they paying DS to advertise here?

I already used Firefox so I just added the Adblock Plus and it seems to have worked!

Thank you!

I just opened ds in both firefox, IE, and Safari and don't get ads on any of them. That makes me think that it may be an issue with your computer or settings...

What version of IE are you using?

I have the newest firefox that is offered. I also know tons of other people that still get the ads in FF too. Just to see if it was something with my personal laptop I went and tried it on my 8 y/o's computer and it also came up and also on our desktop.
