    That big fat MACY's ad crashes my browsers when I try to close it, whether I use Safari or Chrome, doesn't matter. It literally ruins the entire experience of visiting this forum for me, and I often find myself leaving for other forums instead.

    I use FireFox 8.0 with AdBlock, no problems.

    FireFox lets me use RecipeFox to capture recipes for MasterCook

    I use adblock as well. I think Chrome supports a similar feature.

    I gave up on Firefox a few months ago. I'll look into an ad blocker for Chrome, but sometimes I browse the forum from computers that only have Safari installed and where I don't have the admin rights to install the software I want, so this is very annoying.

    Go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/recipetools/files/RecipeFox/ and you can download version 0.60 which DOES work with FireFox 8.0

    I too HATE THAT BIG STUPID AD!!!

    I've got a MAC however, and closing it hasn't caused me any problems. Just a basic PITA.
