Has Anyone Noticed???

I am getting alot of ads on my computer for the Embassy Suites on Waikiki ... but the photo is of the Rainbow Tower at the HHV! These ads seem to be everywhere.

"Firefox (browser) with AdBlock Plus....you won't see any ads."

I've been using it for years.

Missing the point ... amigos...

(And these ads are on my yahoo email page, TA pages, etc. I'm not talking about pesky pop-ups. Even though I hate them.)

I don't use Yahoo mail, but Yahoo is my homepage and I clicked around different sites, even on shopping, etc....no ads BLBL or pop-ups for that matter.....that's why I LOVE Firefox (thanks to Dusty), ads get blocked! You need to change browsers.

That is funny (or false advertising! )

I'll keep an eye out.

I get zero ads using Firefox.

BLBL...I get what you're saying about the photo not matching the caption.......my (and others) point is, you'd never have to see any ads (right or wrong) with Firefox ;-)

I still also have Internet Explorer (which I use rarely and only if I'm having a problem with Firefox). There are ads all over Internet Explorer.

Funny I never get an embassy suite add, I guess because I don't search them. This whole internet privacy thing is a little creepy if you ask me.
