My solution for Flash ads on this site. . .

A friend of mine (who is an IT guy by profession) sent me this when I whined about the flash ads slowing down this site. . .

It is a Firefox extension which seems to do nicely; it causes ANY flash video to display as a blank white box w/ a flash logo in the center. If you click the logo (like when viewing on YouTube or whatever) it will play it then.

http://flashblock.mozdev.org/installation1.html

Click on the most recent stable release (1.5.7.1) it is running fine on the most recent Firefox.

It has really helped me out, so I thought I'd share this with the other ladies who were having the same problem!
