install adblock

Hi all,

I want to install adblock on my firefox.

I am not sure how to do it?

Is there rpm for that? Or should I compile the source???

How exactly.....?

Would appreciate your advice...

AdBlock is a Firefox extension. I installed it by using Tools/Extensions, then get more extensions, Firefox went to the extensions web pages. I found AdBlock in the list, and on it's page just clicked the Install button.

Hope this helps

There is a link to the .xpi file on the adblock page. Click it and it will install. If it doesn't do so, right click the link, save it to your desktop and then drag the file to your open Firefox window and it will install.
