If any of you guys uses the mail.com you would see lots of banner ads made by using Macromedia Flash. They can be blocked but will appear again once you reload that page or read another email.

The URL pattern is always something like this:

[example url]

Is there anyway I could block it once & for all?

BTW, this is a great extension!

Edit: broke the URL to preserve layout --kstahl

If you try to block them by filtering on the full URL it's understandable that they return - the URL changes regularely.

Try adding these two to your filter list:
Code:
*/ads/*
?clickTAG=
