when opening a webpage, my browser stops downloading its content while waiting for an eternity at certain items, how can I filter them?

Because of the location where I live, most of google services are blocked on the internet. Yesterday I wanted to download a device driver from www.m-audio.com but the driver's page stopped loading. I noticed a message at the bottom left of the Firefox window saying "waiting for www.google.com" or something similar. Because of that wait, I could open the page only after 4 tries and waiting way too much time. Can I filter page contents from google so Firefox skips them?

You can look at Adblock Plus.

You need to subscribe to a Filter list (e.g. the EasyList).
