I go to certain web sites and MediaPlayer inserts some sort of an advertisement about Ellen or some other stupid ad that I don't care about and are getting really annoying How do I get them to go away? There is also a popup about some survey from facebook that keeps coming up. How do I get rid of that too.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The players do not choose what to play. They play whatever they get.

Let's do a few things to clean up your Firefox:

Let me suggest two add ons: Ad Block Plus Strict pop up blocker

There is also a more technical fix which doesn't require add ons (in the event you really don't want to get add ons).

I'm not sure if you want to try this, it would be easier to get the extensions, but if you do here it is:

@namespace url (http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml); @-moz-document domain ("www.WEBSITE.COM") {

#popup {display:none !important;}

}

To put this in firefox, open up the userContent.css file. (You will need to create one if it doesn't exist). Copy and paste the above code I gave you, making sure to **ENTER THE WEBSITE'S ADDRESS WHERE WEBSITE.COM IS**.

Heres how to open the Firefox profile folder:

-"3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Troubleshooting Information -(menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information -type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter

Click the "Show Folder" button to launch a windows explorer (or Finder if you have a Mac) window that will have the content of your settings folder. If there is no chrome folder there, create it, making sure that the letters are all lowercase. Then in that folder, create a document, namely userContent.css. **MAKE SURE THAT YOUR TEXT EDITOR DOESN'T PUT .txt ON THE END**. It needs to be .css . If you have Notepad ++ I would recommend using it since it will let you choose what format you would like to save it in. Make sure after completing all these instructions you restart Firefox so it can apply the changes. Its a really long fix, so I would suggest just trying out the add ons, unless you're really tech savvy and want to try this.

Have a great day!!

I reset Firefox and that worked.
