How do I hide " Unable to connect" messages, where ads used to be?
Using FF3.6.6/Ubuntu, I do not use Adblock+; I prefer to block through my HOSTS file. Since I do, I get this : http://img249.imageshack.us/img249/5004/cannot.png Is there an "about:config" tweak that can change the "Unable to Connect" messages to blank, or remove the "non-ad"areas?

Sorry, there's nothing in about:config to hide those blocked ads. Adblock Plus has a preference for "collapse blocked elements", which is what I use to block ads.
You might want to ask about that issue over at the ABP forums. http://adblockplus.org/forum/
Thanks, ed...I'll try over there, too!
Quite simple and should be more widely known:
type about:config into the address space.
Navigate to browser.xul.error_pages.enabled
Click on it to change the default 'true' to 'false'
Problem neatly solved... Simple and elegant...it need not have taken the half hour googling around to find it. The answer should have been known right here.
