Coming to Firefox: Ads based on your browsing history

Mozilla is on a mission to show that online advertising can be done without violating a user’s privacy—or at least not violating it too much. Next week, the beta channel of Firefox will start testing new advertising tiles based on a user’s browsing history.

The story is too old to be commented.

Should work by manually blocking the ads window on whatever page you're visiting.

The only reason why I say "should" is because I haven't run into any of these 'new' ads. But I have had to do it on some pages where ads are ingrained into the page and are not automatically blocked.

Click the Adblock icon, go into "filter preferences" and uncheck "allow some non-intrusive advertising"

I hate ads. Especially when I have to watch a 30sec ad for a 20 sec clip (ESPN).

You have the right to block ads! Especially if its from those big companys putting a 30sec ad on a 20 sec clip aint good. Block it! Find the same clip from the smaller people

well now that we have some pretty decent replacements, i dont mind dropping Firefox as quick as i was dropped IE.

Yeah...that's definitely not a welcomed change.
