    I want to filter Facebook and Twitter inAdblock.


    I just manually added google-analytics.com to my Seamonkey adblock filters which really sped up my dial up connection to fastmail.

    A lot of the websites I visit have facebook and twitter hindering the loading of the page. Can anyone give me a list of facebook and twitter filters that I can install? Thanks!!

    The simplest way is to use the NoScript extension, which I think is available for SeaMonkey. This stops sites running JavaScript. You will have to manually allow sites that you visit and no longer work once it's installed.

    I've added connect.facebook.net to the filter list. Using noscript is a headache, Elija.

    I Found Some More Of Them.

    My computer got hung up on the local newspaper website by cdns.gigya.com so I put it and quantserve.com and twitter.com in that Seamonkey profile adblock filter list.

    I disagree, I would say that noscript is probably the least headache... it's easy to install and configure and easy to temporarily disable if needed. I use a combination of noscript and adblock.

    I have 14 profiles in my Seamonkey browser and each one of them contain 50 bookmarks or more.

    I'll agree that it can be annoying the first time you install it, but No-Script is one of my mainstay add-ons.
    Once you know which site you trust, it's an easy matter to just permanently allow those sites.

    Here is what I have:

    Code:
    ~ $ grep facebook /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1  ads.ak.facebook.com
    127.0.0.1  creative.ak.facebook.com
    127.0.0.1  banners.facebookofsex.com
    127.0.0.1  www.joinfacebookofsex.com
    127.0.0.1  facebookinc.122.2o7.net
    
    ~ $ grep twitter /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1  twittercounter.com
    127.0.0.1  srv2.twittercounter.com
    127.0.0.1  urls.api.twitter.com
    Goto Blocking Unwanted Parasites with a Hosts File and download the hosts.zip file and use it. Stops a lot of ad sites in their tracks.

    I have to agree with the other posters, NOScripts is a great ad-on.
