AdBlock Plus settings
To maximize the blocking function of ABP:
On the ABP 'Stop Sign' drop arrow> Preferences> Filters> Add filter subscription: from the list of those available, tick whatever filter fits your Firefox settings have as 'home' country (US is > Easy List); tick 'Subscribe'> OK.
(This list removes the huge top banner ad on these Yahoo pages)
"Easy List" is one good subscription, and others can be obtained for your particular countries servers (and a few extras for US; EasyPrivacy+EasyList, Malware Domains; AdblockRules.org; Fanboy's List):
In ABP > Preferences> Filters> Add filter subscription> "View All Subscriptions" link @ top of window> on the new Firefox window, select those which you'd like to add (on the right) "Subscribe"> check both boxes> OK out.
The list is long...look for any that will help your browse sessions be 'cleaner'.
When fresh ads appear, it means a new way to get around your current 'blocking' subscriptions. The inconsiderate bastards who intrude onto your system are constantly advancing their delivery methods, and you must constantly counter-measure those efforts.
To remedy; right click the offending rubbish> look for the Adblock Plus 'block' line, then 'add' the "filter rule"> Add filter.
