Website block list

Posted

Sometimes when I open a new tab, the other one opens unexpectedly with some stupis adverts (www.gsming.com). I hate it, I have no idea how did it happen and I can't really remember when it started. It gets really annoying and I thought there's a websites black list on Firefox (I mean something where I input website's address and it won't open).

So my question is: Is there such list and if so, how do I use it? If not, how can I get rid of those opening tabs?

You can prevent the site from loading by adding an entry to your Windows hosts file or perhaps in your firewall. However, that won't stop the tab from opening in the first place.

You have a lot of add-ons, so if one of them is "ad supported" then that could explain it. Tracking that down obviously would take quite a while.

One thought: it might be possible to create a GreaseMonkey userscript to close the tab if the URL is on that site. I haven't tested this idea, so I don't know whether it would work. Would be interesting to try...

Well, closing a window created by another process (not a script) is tricky. I can create a script to at least blank out the tab using the following:

location.replace("about:blank");

Not really an idea solution.
