    I am having a problem. These green lines appear under words sometimes. It makes the word green as well, and it is underlined twice. When I hover over it, a mini advertisement comes up and is related to that word. Please help me get rid of these annoying things. I use Firefox.

    It's just an ad. It's part of the site, everyone gets them (except people that use ABP). Just ignore them.

    It isn't ONLY on this site all the time, sometimes on others as well.

    Listen, they're ads that are setup to give the site money, other sites can do the same thing, relax and ignore them. They're like bee's you don't mess with them, they won't mess with you.

    Although Ibdc is right, I wouldn't be surprised if someone has thought up a plug-in for Firefox or something to eliminate ads like this, as they're a common annoyance. If not, I'm sure it's possible. Unless a website has double-underlined green text on it, I'd bet you could even eliminate the ads in a plug-in by looking for that specific formatting. In short, it's always worth using Google, and there's nothing you like, try programming a plug-in yourself? :smile:

    It's called In-Text links...it's a good way for sites to make extra money and I know the market is getting bigger with it.
