I filed a bug on the ads burning cpu and ram but nothing has happened.

I'm the "Mark" that participated in that Bug report (comments 14 & 16).

I remember back three decades ago installing an ad blocker because "rich
content" ads were consuming too many resources and blocking the
rendering of the web page until the "rich content" had finished playing. It's ironic that today ads are still consuming too many resources, even when our Internet connection is 100,000 times faster, as well as faster
and larger computer systems.

At least that bug report got a priority of P3, which means they haven't
forgotten about it yet. I doubt it will get any traction before the
teething problems of the Firefox Quantum 57 rollout is complete.


One of the resolutions might be to include a minimal ad blocker inside
FireFox.  It is time.

What prevents you from simply installing an ad blocker?
It's not like there's no choice.

Not everyone has the expertise to do so.

That's really hard to believe.

A friend doesn't know what a browser is, doesn't want one, but uses one to check email on the web and has no clue.

She opens the browser, clicks the search bar, clicks gmail in her search history, then clicks the search result every time she wants to check mail.

She just switched from Comcast to Verizon FiOS. The technician suggested the gmail account, Now she has two gmail accounts because she could not get her Comcast mail and set up an account while still on Comcast.

Not that hard to believe that some users are computer illiterate.

Go Bills, Steelers, Pitt, Pens and Sabres!
