When I open a page without full blocking on it, after a couple of seconds of ad rendering, one of them slams the page with the classic fake "Your Adobe Flash Player is out of date!" scam.   This takes over the browser page, of course.

The source site seems to be "" but that is probably a secondary from wherever the original ad comes from that is injecting this.

I haven't had time to try to fully trace it.

Firefox in 'strict' mode blocks it.
