I am using my
hosts file to block ad-serving domains like doubleclick.net.
FireFox fills the blocked ad containers, be they frames or divs or whatever, with a page that says:
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at .
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection.
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
I would like to replace this with something less ugly. Is this possible?
I am running XP and FF 3.5.
