Default TOTV self starting videos and constant flashing speed test signs?

Are all the annoying flashing signs and self starting videos a part of the advertizing clientele of TOTV?

They seemed to have increased in fequency in the last few weeks and are extremely annoying.

Is anybody else experiencing these? I use Firefox as my browser and Windows 7.

I don't notice it on my computer. I was using Firefox with TOTV but switched back to Google Chrome last week because I found that Firefox was very slow with TOTV and the ads were annoying and slow to load. I also have on my popup blockers.

I've been having the same issue for some time...I'm using Safari on a Mac & sometimes Chrome....The videos are especially annoying.

I also use Windows 7 and Firefox. However I have also installed the Firefox extension Adblock Plus. I don't see ads or hear videos. Try it -- Tools > Add-ons > Get Add-ons > Search all add-ons

I've been getting a Russian dating site. It says someone you know is on this site. I want to know which one of you it is?

I did the above and the issues have stopped completely.
Thanx for the tip.
