Is there a way I can have FireFox or AdBlocker block that site from loading :?: because I'm used to accessing the forums from my watched posts which is fine with this [email protected] but when I don't do that, I access it from going to the main site & I sometimes forget that I cant do it anymore & it's a pain in the a$$ to close that page without having to force stop FF which screws up the other tabs I have open.

How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

If the malware is nothing but Java script, I guess simply disabling Java, or blocking all Java scripts with NoScript, ought to do the trick. Certainly it's possible to browse and post even when the wrongplanet.net script is blocked. I'm doing that right now.

Cloudflare is using scripts to write cookies.
When I tested script blocking, I found that every couple of days or so, Cloudflare would halt
loading of the page until I lifted the script blocking and allowed the cookies to be written.

I've not had the main script disabled for long, so it'll be interesting to see if that happens here over the next few days. I have to type my own BBCode for bold, italics, emoticons etc. because clicking them doesn't work, otherwise all's well, so far.

You'd be best to use Opera as your Browser. It will block pop-ups by default and tends to be the browser of choice in the IT community.
