Angry Out-of-Hand Roll-Over Ads.....Go AWAY!



I doubt this is going to make one bit of difference but I just have to say:

THESE
NEW
ADS
SUCK!


Thank you, that is all.





ETA: This fixed it!
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865

Firefox Adblock! Woo-Hoo!

Thanks to the mamas who helped me figure this out!


EDITED AGAIN TO ADD:

Admin has attempted to block the Hershey's ad!
I hope that is good news for all using IE

I completely agree with you. The roll over ads are making the site difficult, if not nearly impossible to use.
There are several ads that make it impossible to reply to the post. When they start acting crazy I just sign off diaper swappers.

Use Firefox with adblock.

there is an ad-on for Firefox called NoScript, its a little bit of a pain to get used to, but it blocks the ads.

It's been a while since I installed it, but you should be able to go here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865 and follow the instructions

Re: Out-of-Hand Roll-Over Ads.....Go AWAY!

I'm glad you said it! It makes me use not so nice language at the companies sponsering them... Poor Herseys has been called some mighty ugly names the last few days!
They roll out, wake the baby with the dumb song and won't let me click out. It drives me insane and is completely out of control...
