every day's a holiday
Also, can I send private messages? The interface is not easy to get used to.
I don't use Google except to search due to virtual monopoly. Adblock that the other member told me about seems to work GREAT on Firefox.Possibly you have malware that is infecting your browser and serving you adds outside of the site's control. More importantly I am amazed there are people that don't use adblock. Did you know that in 5 minutes you could download and install google chrome and then ad block plus and never see an ad again?
Thanks man! Works great. I agree that it is unfortunate that the "useful" ads get overpowered by obnoxious ads that you have to block the whole kit and caboodle. And the site revenue aspect. I wouldn't mind paying subscription for quality and that would include selected quality advertising.I was always understanding of advertising-supported websites, even occasionally clicking-through to help the site-owner prove that the adverts were worthwhile.

sounds like malware to me. i'm looking at this page without any ad blocker and I've got 6 small ads, one on the top and a few little ones down the right side that aren't intrusive (no video or obnoxious audio).
Also, although not always many times the ads are based on your browsing history I don't have any problems with leaving a page open for a long time and the website doesn't continue consuming RAM if I leave it open. You either have malware or a very very old computer most likely
Interesting point. Not sure if that was directed at OP or myself but here's what I see. I browse a lot from different devices and I don't save my login and often do not login at all, so I really think you're on to something here.Are you seeing this when signed in?
