    Use the same add-on, for FF.

    I believe you can install it from the software center or from within ff.

    you can get adblock plus from here:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir.../adblock-plus/
    and, if you wish, there's also adblock plus pop-up addon:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...-pop-up-addon/
    I use both of them on my Firefox.

    Nope, it has to be installed from within Firefox

    @OP, did you manage to get it installed? If you did, please mark the thread as solved. You can do so at the top using the "Thread Tools" button.

    The same addon is available for fx. Mozilla designed fx to make it simple to get addons. Doodle over to Tools/Add-ons, first. In the "get addons" page search for "ABP" or "adblock".

    If you think you have found the right one after searching around, click install.

    Addblock+ needs a list. It prompts choose one after install occurs. Don't forget...
    Ubuntu 10.04 is just the best.
