Taming the dreaded bottomless Web page

When I click on a link to a Web page, it means I want to read the content of that Web page - period. It doesn't mean that I want the publisher of that Web page to use my action as an opportunity to entice me to read an infinite number of other Web pages - and it certainly doesn't mean I want to get stuck in the endless morass of cross-promotion that one frequently finds now below the main article.

Is there an easy, generalized way to use Firefox (or an extension) to nip these "marketing departments run amok" in the bud before they start, and give me back control over what and how much I view on the Web? Or would this entail custom disabling code for each Web site?

Years ago, when Web site designers started messing with people's status bars (back when browsers *had* status bars), Firefox was fairly quick to add controls to allow users to prevent that. Is there anything in the works to give control back to the user for this latest scourge on the Web?

Hello soubeagi,

The Firefox Add-on site has an entire category devoted to Privacy & Security

I would recommend Adblock Plus

By default it blocks the worst Ads, but you can manually add sites to block.

Hope that solves your problem.

You misunderstand.

First off, I already use Adblock Plus; this question is not about ads in the normal sense, so much as about the techniques that Web sites use to promote other content - usually their own content. For example, try going to the home page of answers.com (not that I'm singling them out; they just happen to be the last site I visited that gave me grief in this way) and try to scroll to the bottom of the page. Once you exit from their attempt to solicit your membership in their site (using another obnoxious script that I could also rant on about, but won't here), the page literally won't ever let you hit bottom. It includes some script that detects when your scrolling efforts are getting near the bottom of the "page" and automatically lengthens it with more content - in this case, more links to recently posted articles. This is the behavior that I'd like to disable - and it doesn't matter to me whether this behavior were feeding me an endless stream of ads or some other type of "content" - I'd still want to be able to stop it either way.

Oh I'm sorry.

I think the most effective way would be to use the NoScript add-on which blocks JavaScript from running automatically. The only issue I've found is that it breaks some websites and you end up having to re enable JavaScript anyway.

Another option is this Add-on however it looks abandoned.

Try do not track as well as the suggested add on that curtisa has suggested.

I've installed the Kill Infinite Scroll add-on suggested above, but as I suspected, this is apparently effective against only one specific script, and does nothing to control the behavior of other offenders using similar but not identical code, such as the answers.com site mentioned above. I was hoping for a solution that was more generic - but not so non-specific that it requires turning off all of JavaScript and essentially reviewing every site's behavior and coding on an individual basis the way NoScript would.

I suspect that a real solution will require more changes than can be made using an add-on. Hopefully some programmer will get as fed up as I am and make the changes to Firefox that would be necessary.

Awful web design is what that boils down to. Yes you can install the No-Script add-on which is very good. You can install Ad blockers, Privacy add-ons, Flash blockers etc etc. But this can get very messy unless you know what your doing and are prepared to spend time resolving conflicts that may possibly be introduced by installing them. In all honesty if you really don't like this intrusive style of web design then the best way to stop it is to hit them where it hurts and leave, hit the back button and go somewhere else. Visit their competitors site. This is the only way to stop this trend and get web designers.....actually I will take that back. I don't believe any good web designer would use these kind of practices. They are hired by the company so I would blame them. Anyway I diverse. Hit the back button and leave the site. The more people that do this the better and they will have to change their ways. The really frustrating sites are the ones that don't offer a way out accept for the registration form or you browser back button.
