    I am using Firefox and keep noticing google-analytics appearing at the bottom of the page whenever I do anything. Is there anyway to disable this? THANKS!

    I'm not sure why you are seeing that, you shouldn't. We use it to see how SM fares on the web; shows hits and trends. (By numbers, not users individually.) melbo is taking a well earned break for a couple days; when he gets back, we'll ask. Since my memory won't last longer than a few minutes, you might start a conversation with him the day after Xmas.

    Anyone else that sees that item, please post here.

    Quick Java is also one I use to stop the CONSTANT page flickers & moving . QuickJava :: Add-ons for Firefox

    I also run a DATE program , that can be adjusted so the intranet is not spewing pages from windows 3.1 ,,I was finding many obsolete items , The WEB needs to be cleaned. :)

    Yup. Generally, as already mentioned (Adblock Plus -- Ghostery as homepage) those three will suffice.

    If you are using any torrents *gasp*, and use Windowz, look up Peerblock and give it a whirl.
