Thanks for the heads up, I did a google search for APB and found the program. It is free and works like a charm.

Here is a link for anyone else who is having the same problem I had or tired of being annoyed by them.

I realize that sites like Forest River Foruns need advertising to run, but I draw the line on having to deal with them when their advertisers write scripting into those adds that force me to download and listen to their video adds automatically.

I just had the ad for insurance start without me doing anything and slow down my Mac. When that one was finished another started right after it. I had to close down my browser and restart now things are working agin. I thought you had to click on video to start them. Hope that doesn't continue it will limit my coming to the forum

Is the ad you are seeing automatically playing or do you have to hove over it to make it play?

Mine is doing the same thing and it's getting really, really annoying. The audio is not starting, but one of the scripts that is starting the video is locking up Firefox. I can let it sit for 10 minutes or so and it finally gets done loading, but that gets really old for every page. I will try that ad blocker program when I get home. Like the others, I understand the need for advertising, but I find myself spending more time on other sites that don't crash my browser.

Glad I'm not the only one experiencing problems with ads. Have seen many causing slowness including a Subway ad maybe yesterday or the day before. Started using Chrome browser instead of IE and that seemed to help but it is still affected. Also tried Foxfire and it has been affected also. Pretty annoying actually...

Yup. I'm using Firefox and it keeps locking it up. Really frustrating when trying to go through the daily new posts. Admin, I understand the need for advertising, but this is going to run off users......

Also FWIW I know that it is the ads causing this problem. I can play on the website all day on my work computer, which has a really, really good company firewall that blocks streaming advertisements and scripts. As soon as I go onto a "regular" computer, pure frustration
