All I have on my desktop is firefox setup icon. Download folder?
I'm thinking of just closeing my eyes for a second until I can scroll down some to avoid that wavy guy.

O.K. HOORAAAA!!!
I think the wavey dude is dead!!!
I fooled around,(fooled being the operative word here) and was able to install Firefox. The basic ad is still there but wavey dude is gone. I'm happy!!!
Now I just have to explore a bit to fine tune things. If there are any hints, tips, or whatever I am open to suggestions.
There is Air Karma also known as Thanks coming to all who have assisted me in this little adventure. To some I know it's Nothing, but believe me it was an adventure. Maybe some basic computer class should be considered, or I might keep my windows xp for dummies right next to me full time.
Again thanks to all who helped. Ding Dong The Wavey Dude Is Dead.

I just realized that the Wavey Guy is on my lap top.

I use an older version of Fire Fox on the lap top for reasons of limited memory so an upgrade is not possible. The wavey guy never appeared on the newer version as far as I can remember.

My question is has any one had the wavey guy on Fire Fox and found the sequence to get rid of him? He is not effected by the pop up blocker.

You need to go back firefox web page and down load the ad blocker app. then install it. It will install into Firefox.

The pop up blocker is different than the ad blocker.

I see an "Adblocker Plus" listed on the fire Fox web page. Is that what you are advising?

darn pop ups

Anyone getting tired of the darn pop ups at the top of this forum?
Every time I go to a new thread I have to wait for the pop up to "load"....a couple of seconds way too long! It is getting sooooo irritating. I'm tired of the old guy waving to me

Another fun add-on for Firefox is "Download Helper". It allows you to download and save your favorite videos from You Tube to your hard drive so that you don't have to be on line to watch them.

Yeah Jim there are a bunch of good add ons for Firefox. Just have to sort through them all and figure out what you like..

If your looking for a good antivirus Avasts.com is free and better than the ones you pay for..

But if you have a mac like some of us.. WELL you just don't have to worry about that kind of stuff
