I run the Google taskbar on FF. No issue at all with install or usage.

I have had that issue with Chrome, but not as seriously as that, and only in the past week.

I downloaded the new FF and it cleans up memory properly now, when I close it.

If it's a new issue...I caught it when it first started and it soured me from the first use. Shrek says he's not having any problem at all with Chrome. But, he doesn't hop around as much as I do on the 'net.

Am I still the only one using IE that is getting these ads?
I dowloaded the latest adaware a couple days ago and that stopped the pop ups from plastering themselves across the screen. Again, only on this forum, none of the others that I am on and some of them are pretty ad heavy, but just now when viewing a thread I had audio playing from the video ad you can see here. I held my cursor over the ad and no controls appeared to stop either the ad or the audio. Right clicking did not give me any options either. And hitting escape did nothing. The whole thing played until it was over.

What is up with all these ads here?

BTW, I had to scoll up to see where the sound was even coming from. I was on the last post when it started playing and thought I was picking up sound from who knows where.

I have zero (0) ads on any D.C. page. I'm running Windows XP v.3 using Firefox 5.0 with

Ad Block Plus 1.3.8
Redirect Remover 2.6.4
Microsoft .net framework assistant 0.0.0

And under Firefox "Options - Privacy" I don't accept Third Party Cookies.

I also use "PC Tools - Spyware Doctor with Antivirus" as a screener to bad websites.

This works for me!

I wouldn't expect to have to run anything above and beyond the normal spyware/adaware programs unless I was on a malicious website. That's why I can't understand why I am being bombarded here.

I just started to pickup the audio as I read this thread.

For the last couple of weeks I have been getting a new type of annoying pop up ads but, only on DC.

I use Norton and I am too cheap to spend any more money. The only thing I do is vow not to buy any of the products being offered.
