    Must we have POP UPS here?
    Even my anti pop up software does not work unless I use Netscape 7. Are these internet explorer Microsoft pop ups or what? very annoying!!!

    the only pop ups is fastmediaclicks.com all you have to do is block it with a firewall program.

    And supposevly pop-ups are supposed to help your patience. (What kind of bull crap is that!?!?)

    and [bold] adserver.com [/bold] nice big ones that cover the whole page, firewall dont block them, ie does not block them, only netscape, mozilla of firefox works, in fact the free pop up blockers they have work much better than ie, gozilla (sucks) or any others, and I tried a lot of others and retail versions too.
    Just somehting else that has to be cleaned off the HDD.

    But OK, if the pop ups help keep Afterdawn going, I guess I can live with them when using the bug ridden, security flawed, lock-up prone IE.
    If you really want to know how your pop up blocker is working, test it here:
    http://www.popuptest.com/
    and when you go there, the pop up is NOT from pop uptest!

    Happy New Year!

    Im currently using IE6 along with Zonealarm Pro and i keep getting these annoying ads. I think i might change to Mozilla Firefox as that seems to cure the problem. One question i have about Firefox is when i tried it a couple of months back, when i visited the aD forum, the page didn't fill the screen (if you can understand what im saying) it reduced the page width and i had to keep clicking on options, increase text size, to fill out the page. Any suggestions...

    Unless everyone here is willing to help pay the monthly hosting fees for AfterDawn popups are a necessary evil.
