If Your Website Does This, F*ck You [Pic]

Protip: Open the developer console by hitting F12 and delete the element. In Chrome, right-click the popup, Inspect Element. The element should be highlighted in the "Elements" pane; right-click it and Delete node. Read everything you want for free! HACKING!

BUT there is a solution. Just wanted to share.

F12 doesn't work in my outdated version of Firefox, but I can open the adblock pane with ctrl-shift v and usually get rid of them that way.

Reload and click stop immediately after the page loads and the ad might not pop up.

drawman61, No but adblock does!

As does noscript, which is a more thorough security tool. It's essentially a firewall for scripting, so it blocks everything executable from every site unless you tell it not to. It can therefore block most of the possible malware attacks on the web, even zero day ones. Even if, for example, IAB is infected with a cross-site scripting attack (which can happen to almost any website) and I allow IAB to run scripts (which I do), I`m still safe because when the attack tries to run the malware from the other site noscript will block it because I won`t have whitelisted the other site.

It`s slightly more complicated to use than adblock because you have to decide permissions, but it gives stronger protection. The fact that it blocks adverts that are being served from other sites (i.e. almost all adverts) is a useful side effect rather than the sole functonality.

Can you use this method to get past the "take this questionnaire to close this window and download the file" poo?
