Hi all,

I realize that Lumberjocks must pay for the administration and fees with advertising, but that alergy medication ad is annoying! Can anything be done to prevent it from dropping dow everytime I go to a new page??

I agree it’s annoying but it’s the cost of doing business, I guess.

Maybe an ad block program, not really sure, I actually have grown fond of them. You never know when you might be thinking of buying a different type of toilet paper.

I don’t get it. No pop – ups here. Advertising generally is based on browser history. Mine generally are equipment dealers.

I use Adblock Plus on Firefox.

I don’t get it. The only ads I see are for senior citizen swingers groups.

Now I just might have to disable the ad blocker.

Hi All,

Love the comments and advice, thanks! I had no idea about the adblocker ad-ons available for Firefox. I just loaded ADBLOCKER plus and it works great! No more senior citizen swingers groups ads!

Thanks all!

I don’t have any kind of an Ad Blocker and those “Drop Down/Pop Up” Ads never appear on my Computer.

I’m also using the browser Everyone Loves to Hate. IE 10

The only Ads I do see are Top, Right Side & Bottom. They never move and don’t interfere with my Browsing.

See My Post at #7. I’m still not, and never have seen any Ads Like this.

What “Product” is the Ad About?
