    hi guys i use FF 1.04 and was wondering how can i set it to block certain directories on a site, for example i wanna block the banner ads in the anandtech site, i know they are in http://images.anandtech.com/banners but when i select the 'Block images from' option it blocks all the images from Anandtech! i only want to block the banners and flash ads coz it can be really painful on my dial up connection. Any suggestions?

    + Reps to any1 who helps :D

    -Thanx

    To solve that Electro, go ahead and give someone else rep (like me) :)

    Here is a good place to get a filter list file for the AdBlock extention that blocks most adds.

    AdBlock Filter list
