I just started using AdSense, since Google bans accounts which click on their own ads, I am wondering how can one best avoid clicking on one's own ad accidentally?

Is there perhaps a Firefox addon, where I can enter one (my) domain for the ads to be blocked?

From personal experience, they only get shirty if you do it consistently. Their click-fraud algorithm seems to take accidental clicks into account. – user3463 Apr 24 '12 at 17:35
Try adblockplus – Random Guy Apr 24 '12 at 19:13
I agree with @Randolph. An accidental click here or there is not an issue; they're looking for people who are clicking (or automating clicking) hundreds and thousands of times. I wouldn't use an ad blocker, because you want to be sure that the ads on your site are working correctly. – Al E. Apr 26 '12 at 14:20

Your not really going to be tripping any of their alarm bells by click one or two adds accidentally, so first off you probably don't need to do anything.

If your really set out to ensure there are no accidental click look for something like adblockplus as a firefox extension.
