how to remove banner at bottom....it worked for me

someone on the host board posted this.........and it worked.......i've logged in/out, and gone from board to board, and it is GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!! it hasn't popped back on.......
i have no idea if it will work for you iphone/blackberry users.....but it worked onmy desktop
Yahoo
This is what I did to get the pop up ad banner to go away and stay away while I browse p.org
Tools, at top of internet browser page
Internet options, at bottom of list
Security, second tab on top
Restricted sites, last logo on settings
Sites, click on tab
And add http://pshared.5min.com
It will stop the ad pop up and keep it away
Hopefully it works for you and helps with the frustration

I didn't even need to close my browser, I just refreshed the page after adding it as a restricted site and it went away Smile

ETA: this also works on those annoying ad videos on photobucket

Did you guys fix it in Firefox?? The only thing I could find was to restrict images loading, where I added the web page...so the banner still shows up, but no images...yay, lol. I seem to remember the Firefox tools being much bigger before having the Swagbucks toolbar on, but if someone's fixed the issue in Firefox, please tell me what I'm doing wrong!

Download Ad block plus https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/
Then in "tools" click "adblock plus preferences"
Under the tab "Filters" Click ADD FILTER then put in that site above. Then click enable. Got rid of the banner for me. Hope it works.

Yahoo This worked, THANK YOU! I had a feeling there was an add on, so I got some parental blocking add on that didn't work anyway, the Ad Block add on was the right one, YAY!!!

You can load Firefox on any mobile device and have it sync up all your bookmarks, settings, etc. that you already have on a laptop/desktop. I just know that the iphone doesn't support Firefox, or any other browser except for Safari...so I've been wanting to load Firefox, just worried it'll eff up the phone and I won't be able to fix it!
