Just wanted to add, I've used AdBlock Plus on Firefox for years. It certainly gets rid of all the annoying pop-ups, etc. You'll like it.

Thanks for posting, up2you2.

Social media buttons are used to track your entire online activity, so it's a good idea to block them to protect your privacy. I've been recommending doing this for the last few years in my signature below.

Also, ads can be used for spreading viruses, so they should always be blocked to avoid potential infections.
