Default How to KILL this stupid Office Depot Ad ->

Okay I don't mind advertisers paying for this site, but this thing is annoying and obnoxious. I just move the mouse pointer over it and BAM this huge frickin pop-up takes over the whole screen! How the heck do I kill it?

It doesn't show up all the time, but if you see the Office Depot ad on the right and hover over it, you will see what I mean.

1. Use Mozilla's Firefox as your browser. Just download for free & install. Take about 10 minutes.

2. Use Firefox's ******* software, also downloadable for free. Another 5 minutes.

Presto: No more annoying ads.

Works like a charm.

I don't mind the girls in bikini ads, or the midget ads and now I'm getting "I date Asia" ads (honest-no kidding!)in which the posted age of the girl is 23 but she's not a day over 18; and she's on line right now to talk to. Gotta go get my CC. Keep'em coming IBrands.

The ad is a pain in the neck. Switching browser isn't a possibility on a work computer.

It is not us. Those ads are brought to you by the folks at Google and Double Click and are facilitated by your browser. Office Depot does not advertise here. We do have software to kill the targeted ads like this and it is enabled when you join. Or you can install an ad blocker in your browser - providing the folks that own the browser allow blockers. Some of them do not because it hurts revenue. Oh, the bikini girls? Not us either.
