How can we block those annoying ads from Topix, I mean the ones with sound, that pop up at the right side of the screen??? I HATE sports and the stupid sports news keeps popping up LOUDLY while I am trying to think about something else. Of course, you can reach up and stop them but they pop back up in a few minutes!! How can we keep them from popping up to begin with???

I know Topix had to make money, and I'm all for that, but I think imposing sound on us is too much!!!

FireFox browser with adaware and no script add ons. Some people say they have problems with FireFox, I don't.

I'm a heck of a secretary on my computer, but I never did use it as a toy. I only got on line to do emails and that wasn't until 6 years ago.

Then I discovered Topix and then Google -- Wow. This is awesome.

I too am bothered by pop ups and those silly commercials making noise ... while I'm listening to a song at the same time.

DazzelDat, I'd like to learn more please.

I have been having a lot of problems with Firefox recently and now use Google Chrome

And can just x out of those ads

Your antivirus should block the pop-ups

The ones with sound do not have the X that the law says they should have. You cannot X them out. You can turn them off with the little arrow temporarily, but they come back on in just a few minutes.

I think they are coming from Topix, not Google, or Firefox.

Anyone know how you can just block them or turn them off permanently???

Turn off your speakers or the sound on your computer when you are on topix is all i know.

If you are using internet explorer, disable the flash player. You will need to enable it for other sites such as youtube.

What I want to know is, doesn't the law still say that ads have to have an x that you can click to turn the stupid things off? Why isn't Topix honoring that law?

I HATE sports, and the constant sports announcements are SO annoying!!

And if you are playing music in the background from youtube while you post on Topix, you don't want to have to turn off your sound.
