Adblock Plus

Adblock Plus is an advertising blocker for Firefox. …

It lets you subscribe to one or more filter subscriptions to block online advertising, and provides a block tab for Flash and Java objects. Open source. Once installed you will be asked to select a filter subscription; I have had good results with EasyList (English). I find the default settings to my liking, but you can tweak them at Menu button – Add-ons – Extensions – Adblock Plus Preferences.

Some Adblock Plus users recommend the Adblock Plus Pop-up Addon to gain additional control over pop-ups, though I have not had need to test it. Open source.
