Advertising is one of the most annoying things on a website. Some websites bombard us with popups, pop-up windows, promotions and many other types of advertising every time we enter their link in our browser. These advertisements often slow down your browser and can even cause it to crash. In today's article we will explain how to defend ourselves from these annoying advertisements and so forget about them.
To block advertising on the websites we visit, we will use a handy Firefox addon called AdBlock Plus. This handy application will connect to various advertising lists and block ads from our browser when they are detected.
To install it, follow the steps below:
- We access this link and click on the button Add to Firefox.
- The addon will ask for permission to install and will be incorporated into your browser. When it finishes it will show us a message to restart Firefox.
- When the browser opens again, you will see a new button in the top right-hand corner of your screen. This will allow us to modify the properties of AdBlock Plus where necessary.
One thing to bear in mind is that sometimes it is possible to AdBlock block some web functions that it interprets as advertising. If you have a problem with a specific website, just go to the website in question and, by clicking on the AdBlock icon, choose the option of Disable only on this page.
