I have been getting ads that use flash player and cannot get info by right clicking on them to submit to you. These ads often freeze up my system and/or send me jumping through the roof when the blast in with loud sound tracks and startle me. They are located way down at the bottom of the page. Can they be turned off somehow? My poor brain can't handle much more of them.

Unexpected Flash ads scare me, too, so I have Flash set to "Ask to Activate" in my browser.
In Firefox, go to Tools>Add-ons>Plugins>switch from "Always Activate" to "Ask to Activate".

If a page wants to use Flash, then a grey bar will show at the top of the page asking "Allow cubits.org to run Adobe Flash?" with buttons to select "Continue blocking" or "Allow".

If you do want to see something with Flash, then you can just choose "Allow." Smiling

Thank you Danita!

I never had that problem until I got my new computer. Now maybe I can relax and enjoy it.

There seemed to be a lot of sites that I was definitely not enjoying because of ads taking so long to load... then I downloaded "AdBlock" and life is good again! It's a free program (although you can contribute to them if you want to), and I really can't say enough good things about it. There were a couple of sites that I visit regularly (All Recipes is one of them) that had become essentially unusable for me because it was taking so long for a page to load. Now I can enjoy them again! ) And, you can choose to "pause" it, or just not run it on any given site.
