When I first looked at the site, I did not see any of these problems.
But then I took a look at the page source and quickly figured out I
already have the solution.

1. Install Firefox.
2. Install the NoScript add-on.
3. Under NoScript options, clean out the default white list, removing
all of the .com sites.
4. Still in the options, on the Embedded tab, forbid everything except
iframes. But, then again, maybe you want to forbid iframes as well.

Then, as you browse, decide where and when to allow these features. I
always do it on a temporary basis per site, so they get disabled again
each time I start up the browser.

By the way, HTML Validator, another FF add-on I recommend every
developer install, shows a number of warnings on that site, similar to
'line 115 column 1 - Warning: <td> attribute "width" has invalid value
"49.5%"'. (NOTE: If you are on Linux, the FF add-on site incorrectly
states this add-on is not available. But when you go to the home site
for the add-on, there are Linux versions to install.)
