I have no problem with sponsor ads, it reminds me who's supporting the forums. Trump isn't supporting this forum.

From their website -

After you install / restart, an Adblock-item will be present in the tools-menu. This will launch Adblock's prefs:



I just added */ads/* and I'm not seeing any ads other than Flash based ones.

Then add this and love it even more.

Canned list of filters that pretty much ensure you'll never see an ad again.

Wow, that Foxfire ad blocker sure changed the look of things for the better, but I am going to miss those Christian girls with their huuuuuuuge, tracks of land, in those tight white tee shirts.
