    Why all of the ads?

    Kinda irritating seeing all of the ads in place of content.

    Oh well I suppose it is necessary too bad.

    I might just drop this forum. I do not mind a little advertising but twenty ads to a page is just too much.

    Ads shouldn't be visible for logged-in users. Try logging out, and then back in.

    We would miss you Ralph but there is no need, try Adblock Plus if you do not always want to log in, it has stopped 49 adds as I am typing this. Works on all web sites but may cause disruption sometimes.

    Better yet, install Ubock Origin. This URL...

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ublock-origin/

    will take you to the Firefox extension. If you don't use Firefox, Google around for a version for your browser. I believe there is a version available for every popular browser.

    Believe me, it will make your online time a great deal more enjoyable.

    I am trying a different browser (Firefox rather than Chrome) because of all of the adds I get from Chrome/Google and that browser did not automatically log me in
    so I saw all of the adds. Hopefully I will find the settings in Firefox to do auto login as Chrome does.

    In firefox, select Tool/options/ (a new tab will popup) then select Privacy & security, then scroll down to Logins & passwords, select "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites", also "use a master password". You need to set that password up. Makes it nice if you ever forget a site password you can have it show it to you after you key in the master password.

    As long as you don't log out, the next time you visit the site, it logs you in. For your financial banking and such, their security requires login as they log you out for non use.

    As Marv Klotz indicates, install extension Ublock origin. I also have No Script, and also use duckduckgo for a search engine, as they don't track me. However, I don't know how they make money to support it. There are also 'containers', I've installed google container, so it locks their eyes from other cookies and such. If you do facebook there is a container for that, as well Disconnect for facebook, all to prevent them from looking at other cookies, as well sites that snoop for these. I've installed fbpurity (from fbpurity.com) which allows you to kill all the FB adverts and other annoying popups.

    Do you have a menu bar at the top of the firefox window? If not, I think you hover your mouse where it should be, and right click, and a menu pops up, there should be Menu bar as one of the items, select this. The other way is Alt "M".
    Or over on the right side of the window is this little gear shaped icon, it is Open Options, there the menu for options opens in a new tab.
    Hope this helps, it sucks that firefox install does not have the menu bar open by default.
