    First Norton, and now Firefox.
    Found a potentially scary (from an affiliate's point of view) situation involving Firefox.

    On some Blogs and Message boards a link-blocking script is making the rounds.

    Blocks Google ads, Iframes, links galore, and banners deluxe.

    Link at http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/adblock Mozilla/Firefox.

    If this becomes widely accepted and goes mainstream (installed by default like Norton's adkillers) we'll be outta luck on the Firefox Browser platform.

    Right now, it's being offered as an add-on script to the Firefox CSS file, and most users don't know of it's existance, nor are the average users savvy enough to install it.

    Any suggestions on how to deal with this before it could become a major problem???

    Good find, Rick.

    That page provides a great list of code signatures to avoid in your scripts. If it's not on the list, it shouldn't be blocked by FireFox.
