Try using the Adblock Plus extension. If you are still on SeaMonkey 1.1.x, be sure to get the 1.0.1 version; later versions are for Firefox 3.x and SeaMonkey 2. I have a copy if you want me to send it to you. 1.0.1 is NOT available from the Adblock Plus site, so I'm not sure where else to get it. -- David E. Ross <http://www.rossde.com/> Go to Mozdev at <http://www.mozdev.org/> for quick access to extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other Mozilla-related applications. You can access Mozdev much more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons. _______________________________________________ support-seamonkey mailing list email@example.com https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/support-seamonkey
