    First: I am not a 'happy clicker'.

    I just thought about this when I wanted to take a closer look at an ad on a webpage. Of course, I didn't use 'left click' (mouse), but 'right clicking' (maybe this is not correct English) revealed it to be a Flash ad. It seemed I couldn't get more information about it (without a 'left click').

    Is there any (not too complicated or cumbersome) way to get more information about these ads, for example, where they lead too ?

    If you have Firefox with NoScripts installed you'll see something like below. If you hover over or right click the NoScript logo it will tell you where it originates and can allow.

    Firefox also has Flashblock, but I haven't tried that yet since NoScript seems to be doing the job.

    So you want to see the source of the page? Go to view->source(Opera) or View->Page Source(Firefox)

    Yikes!!

    Please don't use such offensive word in a thread's title, or at least munge them...

    I almost had a heart attack when SSM instantly exploded my browser like with an atomic bomb :blink:

    Thanks, but I would really prefer to use beloved Proxo if I needed to do that this way (rewriting html codes). ;)
    Anyways, the browser killing effect was caused by SSM's "Window Filter" module, and this fonction has other particular purposes. It is fixed now (by adjusting its internal short "black list"). But it was a 1rst here that this effect was activated by a simple link's clicking, and I have to say it caught me by surprise!

    I guess that you have no choice than using another browser for those pages..
