Not really the answer you are looking for, but ...
Don't know about you, but one of the big reasons to use Firefox
is to avoid ads, especially third party ads which really leave you
vulnerable to security problems, since many companies think they can
write nice privacy policies it they have somebody else do their snooping..
1) "Adblock" or "Adblock Plus" Extension typical suggested lists
will effectively block yahoo ads.
2) "Customize Google"
3) "Platypus" and "GreaseMonkey" for frequently visited sites
4) hosts file, whether Windows or Linux, but keep the list small; otherwise,
you may really slow your system.
