how to make all google text ad's disappear

incase if anyone is getting tired of them:


Download and install Mozilla Firefox.

Install the Adblock extension.
https://update.mozilla.org/extension...info.php?id=10

Restart Firefox to complete Adblock's installation.

Go to the Tools > Extensions menu, highlight Adblock, and click the Options button.

In the New Filter: input box, paste this: http://*.googlesyndication.com/*
Ensure that in the Adblock preferences window, it is set to Remove ads, not Hide ads.

Never see another Google ad!

Then buy another stick of memory. Adblock is a leaky bastard.

It leaks memory.

Launch FF and check your task manager for FF memory usage. Browse for a couple hours and check again. You can quit and start FF again but it's slightly annoying.

I like to believe I have memory to spare - but when I leave Pandora running the entire time ( http://pandora.com ) I can get ~210xxxK of memory usage after 8 hours with Adblock Plus. Love it anyway!

I've been using Firefox with adblock for a year or two so this info interested me.
With ad block enabled every time I click on refresh page memory usage goes up hundreds of bytes.

Then, with Adblock disabled, every time I click on refresh page, memory usage goes down a few hundred bytes.

Tried adding "http://*.googlesyndication.com/*" but it did not block text.
Images were already being blocked.

Ensure that in the Adblock preferences window, it is set to Remove ads, not Hide ads. and that should make the text go away

I have no reason to block reasonable ads. That's how google makes there money and I support that. As long as they're tasteful and not non-intrusive. Pop-up ads are an example of ads I don't support or tolerate...

I even enjoy ads that are geared towards me. If you are selling something I want to buy, then let me know! Google ads try to do this and that's appreciated, as well...

Ultimately, ads aren't bad things. They just need to be done well...

I had no idea it was so leaky. Certainly explains a lot.

I've started blocking any website that assaults me with something that plays a sound or that hovers over content. I figure that I'm playing a small role in providing an economic incentive to stop plaguing me with annoying ads.

I'll take the memory leak without having to see all the annoying ads everywhere.

No doubt adblock is user-friendly, but for more flexibility without the leaks, try <a href="http://www.privoxy.org/user-manual/index.html">Privoxy</a> or <a href="http://www.proxomitron.info/">Proxomitron</a>.

My only problem with adblock is that it kept me from viewing movie clips in FF.

Adblock is leaky, as said before, and no longer developed.

Adblock Plus is the replacement for it.
Quote:
The development of Adblock pretty much stopped in 2004. When more and more people demanded improvements Michael McDonald came up with Adblock Plus 0.5 basically a version of Adblock with whitelisting, filter subscriptions and several other useful features.

This version of Adblock Plus was still based on Adblock, which set hard limits to improvements. Quality of Adblock being... shall we say... less than adequate a complete rewrite was desperately needed. That came with Adblock Plus 0.6 a completely new extension with focus on being easy to use, stable and secure. For various reasons many enhancements from Adblock Plus 0.5 didn't make it into the original release of Adblock Plus 0.6 but this changed with Adblock Plus 0.6.1.
I don't use it, but for those who do, here ya go.

I just removed AdBlock and installed AdBlock Plus.
I think the memory problem is gone.
Refreshing the page many times does not increase memory usage.

Not much of a test, I guess, but this version does seem better in this respect.

Will try this program for awhile because it is easier for me to figure out how to use
compared to the programs suggested by cyrnel.
