I knew there had to be a way to block it. That’s the keyword: block. I got to thinking, “Gee, this is just as annoying as ads. Wait, I have ads blocked…”

To do this, you must be using a browser that is compatible with AdBlock and obviously you need AdBlock installed. I have not figured it out on Firefox yet, as Chrome is my main browser. There must be a way to manually block an ad on Firefox, I’m just not quite seeing it. Please let me know if you figure that out!

Step 1:
Click your Ad Block tool bar icon and choose “Block an Ad on this page”. That’s easy enough!

Step 2:
Ad Block will pop a box up on the left of your screen and items you hover will be colored a transparent blue. Just highlight and click on one of the ticker items.

Step 3:
Now look back over at that Ad Block box on the left and you’ll notice a slide. Drag the slide to the right until you see these words  DIV id=”pagelet_rhc_ticker” and then click the “Looks Good” button.

Step 4:
You get one last chance to preview it and if it looks good, just click “Block It”. You are done, your ticker is hidden now. One less distraction on Facebook now.

I think Facebook may have just made a wrong move today. I’ve started using Google+ sporadically, but definitely hopped over there this morning. I’m already seeing a lot more activity over there. I bet Google is loving the boost Facebook just gave them!

Thank you AdBlock! I love you!

It’s no secret I’m a big Firefox fan. I rely a lot, maybe too much, on Firefox for my browsing. There are so many useful extensions and Firefox sports the best ad blocker I’ve come across. Yes, I use Firefox to remember passwords to countless sites. There often comes a time when I need to use a different browser and I have no clue what my password could possibly be. Thankfully Firefox makes it super easy to view the password you have saved while visiting a login page.

Navigate to the login page of the website. Right click anywhere on the page and select “View Page Info”

In the pop up window, click the security tab and then the “View Saved Passwords” button

In the next pop up window you’ll see all the usernames you have saved associated with this particular login page. You’ll see a button at the bottom to “Show Passwords” which will enable a password column for you to view the passwords.

Now you can view all of your saved logins for any site.
