Webpages often contain time-consuming programs that install software on your computer or show you ads. You can prevent pages from loading such content. Unfortunately, many beneficial features use the same technology, so if you block ads, you might also block the animation and interactivity that makes webpages interesting.
To block certain types of content:
- Choose Edit > Preferences.
- Click Privacy tab.
- In the Web Content section, check or uncheck types of content you want to block
- Loading images
- Pop up windows
- Plug-Ins, like Adobe Flash
- Disk caching
