Howto block ads with Firefox Adblock


Note: This article was originally published in 2005 and may be outdated.

This howto will learn you how to block ads with Mozilla's Firefox browser by using Adblock

1. Open Firefox and click on the Tools menu.
2. Click on Extensions.
3. Then click on "Get more extensions".
4. Click on Adblock.
5. Then click on 'Install Now' and follow the instructions.
6. Close Firefox and then reopen Firefox.

Adblock will now be installed - you can find it in the Tools menu.
Once installed, it's very easy to filter ads or other elements at websites. Just right-click on the item and Adblock them.

Adblock also allows you to use filters. You can either use the wildcard character (*) or full regular expression syntax.

But I think it would be wise not to exaggerate by blocking every single ad that you encounter. Hosting a website is expensive and if everyone would block advertising then many websites wouldn't be able to exist. Wouldn't it be a pity that our favorite sites would have to close because the webmasters can't afford it anymore?
