DS crashing Firefox!

(Hope this is the right place to post this...let me know if it's not.)

Something on DS's site is causing Firefox to crash for me now and then. It's not all the time, just once in a while (maybe twice a day). The only thing I can figure is that it's an ad. (By the way, can I just say that I HATE the new video ads, especially the ones that automatically play sound? Can we say ANNOYING?)

Anyone else having this problem? I'm running Firefox 3.5.3 on Windows 7 (just upgraded this weekend...but was having this problem last week, too, using Vista). Any thoughts on how to fix it?

Get the Ad-Block Add on for Firefox. Ever since I got that I have not had a single problem. It makes all of the ads on every site go bye bye. It makes DS and Facebook so much nicer.

Opera has been doing this to me on here the past couple of days (on a PC desktop AND a Mac laptop)

ETA: yay, I just googled and found out how to block a ton of crud. Opera rocks
