Justin, same here. I assumed some sort of malicious software at work.

Download firefox.
Download Add-block plus (add on)
Download ghostery (add on)

Say farewell to advertisements from now on.

That’s the funny thing, I’m already running Ad-Block Plus and Ghostery. I even doubled-check to make sure Ghostery was blocking all trackers and that Ad-Block Plus was up to date. I haven’t seen any ads in the last half hour of browsing LJ’s so who knows.

None here. Maybe I’m just lucky ;-) Knock on wood!! (Pun intended.)

the ONLY time I see some key words in blue (which means they’re clickable links) is when I’m not signed in. Check the top-right corner of the page and make sure you see your picture and not the words “sign in”
