More and more websites contain advertisements, banners and other tracking elements. Even sites that never displayed them in the past are now earning money by allowing advertising to fill their pages.

If you are annoyed by the incessant barrage of ads, you can install an extension to your browser to block this type of advertising. Firefox® users can use a simple solution called Adblock Plus© by Wladimir Palant. The add-on is supported by over forty filter subscriptions in dozens of languages that automatically configure it for purposes ranging from removing online advertising to blocking all known malware domains. Adblock Plus© allows you to customize your filters with a variety of useful features, including a context option for images, a block tab for Flash® and Java® objects, and a list of blockable items to remove scripts and style sheets.

To learn how to install this Firefox® add-on, read the instructions below.

Installing Adblock Plus©:

  1. Launch Mozilla® Firefox® and go to the Adblock Plus© add-on website.
  2. Click on the “ + Add to Firefox“ green button.
  3. Wait for the implementing process to finish and then click on the “Install now“ button.
  4. Restart the Firefox® browser.
