    I think it might be the Samurai Jack one... not sure, but it has made Firefox screw up a couple times now. Anyone else have this?

    Alright... this is really starting to piss me off. SHH is eating up all of my computer resources just by going to the site. CPU Usage is at 100% right now... but when I leave the site and go elswhere it will be at like 5-10%. This is ridiculous. I might be forced into not coming here or using that damn Adblock if this continues. I'm thinking that it is the Samurai Jack ad... but I'm not sure.

    Slipknot, it's probably a flash ad that's crashing your browser, in which case you'll need the Flashblock extension for Firefox.

    Click on Tools > Extensions. A little box pops up, showing which extensions you have installed. There is a link on the lower right hand corner which says "Get More Extensions". Click it. It takes you to a web page where you can search for extensions. Search for Flashblock. When you get to the Flashblock page it will show and "Install Now" link. Click it. Reboot. Flashblock is now installed. It works the same way for all other extensions.
