OK, I've successfully used AdBlocker to kill the big banner ads atop

http://tinyurl.com/cxyhy (the real URL is much longer)

Now, is it possible to get AdBlocker to alter that page so that it will suck up all the newly-abandoned real-estate so that the weather-map is more visible w/o scrolling?

Pointer to location of the doc would be fine. I looked but came up empty...

In the Adblock Preferences window, do you have "remove" adds selected?

and

In the Adblock Preferences window, under the Adblock Options menu, do you have "Collapse Blocked Elements" checked?

Strangely, I already have those settings made. Perhaps there are some other elements I need to seek out and destroy. I'll report back later... got to go. Thanks for the feedback! Very Happy

My HTML's way more than just a bit rusty -- I've managed to kill the two large graphics at the top of

http://tinyurl.com/cxyhy

but I can't figger out how to find the element(s) that are still holding the space open. There's so much machine-generated code in there, my brain just locks up. Any hints? Question Embarassed I'd be grate for a boost... Confused
