new firefox adds?

Postby Cew27 on Sun Feb 17, 2008 4:00 pm

Hi i am new here and i am current running ubuntu
i was planning to switch to linux mint when i heard about a new firefox update on mint on the ubuntu forums
a member there said he just updated his ff and the update made it so that firefox had new adds?
my facts may be wrong but if this is the truth i am slightly disappointed, i saw linux mint as a flawless perfect distro.
This may not be a large problem but it is disappointing in my eyes, i appreciate what you guys are doing and i respect your attemt to make some money back from all that you have put into mint.
im just wondering can you turn the adds off?
thanks for reading and can i just say that me and all the other ubuntu forum member really appreciate your work

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

there are no ads in firefox!! it has to do with google search in the minty version
of firefox.

see Clem's posts here: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=9504&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

should explain it all :D

that I don't know.
Husse or Clem would have to answer this.

what I can tell you is that I see no difference in firefox. just in the google search page you get
when you use the search bar.

I see no difference either. Of course I use the ff adblock-plus extension (I have for years). It's all about choice.

I see no new adds even without adblock plus extension.
I will have to try adblock though :D
