Updated Ad Blocker for Firefox 11+

Author(s):



#####READ#####
This is an experimental add-on. It may or may not work. I updated this to work on my machine only and decided to release it. It still works as of 11/12/12 on several machines in my home with no problems. However, I did not write the bulk of this code and it was designed for a much earlier version of firefox, I think 4 or 5. So it may interfere with other add-ons that you have installed. I know I fixed some of the issues in the past but not all of them. I currently do not use firefox anymore for the bulk of my every day browsing, I use chrome. So do not expect any more updates to fix your issues.
#################
THIS ADD-ON IS NOT A POP UP BLOCKER!! If you have pop-ups use something else! It may block the stuff in the pop up, but not prevent it from popping up!
Write a review if you like it or have any suggestions please. Post a review with any bugs and give details so I can recreate to fix. I plan on maintaining support for this add-on and improve it.
