Firefox adblock question

Finally downloaded the adblock extension. Who all here has the google ads up at the top of the screen blocked? What's a good filter to use?

When I rightclick adblock, this is the suggested one:

http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com...=18&u_nmime=60

That, of course, will block the currently displayed one, but not the next one. Where's a good spot to put in the wild card? I guess I don't know what the downside of blocking "too much" would be? Screw up the behavior of gmail?

Just curious what, if anything, other users here have done.

I blocked after the .com, adding an asterick after the slash. It will block all of them.


The downside of blocking too much would be if you blocked an entire domain that actually served a purpose, however most major sites farm out their ads to other domains such as "adclick" or "doubleclick"..etc. Rarely do ads belong to the root of the domain. Also, using the wildcard helps because it will block all images, flash videos, and "iframes" from that source.
