    For the Mozilla Firebox:

    -------------------------------

    :: Go to the dock and hit the Mozilla browser.


    :: Once your browser is open then, go to the “menu” if you using the old version or “firebox” if you using the latest version.


    :: Then hit the add-on under it.


    :: Now select the select the “check to see if your plugins are up to date”.

    :: Under you find the ad block add on,this will prevent from the ads OK.

    :: And do one-thing also uninstall the
    "Yahoo silent".

    Dear Friend...

    There is nothing to do with this now.
    It is quite simple.

    Just open your Firefox browser and see that there is a status bar in your browser which is located either above or down the URL option.
    At this status bar, just press a right click in the blank area of that bar.
    A small dialog box open which have many options such as advt, radio, menu bar, bookmark bar, etc,,,,
    What you need to do is to unchecked that Yahoo silent installer.
    When you disable from that status bar, you will not get any more adds right now,

    If you feel any problem, then uninstall this Yahoo silent installer from System preferences.

    Thank you..
