Get no script
I just wanted to pop in and advise you use Firefox with No Script (an add on) enabled. It stops all scripts from running on webpages unless you give permission. That means no pop ups, no animated ads, no scroll-over pop ups, no video player etc,. You can whitelist pages, and even individual scripts per page, its a life saver, plus needed security.
In any case, No Scripts saves lives...ok, well, it makes browsing much much better.
