An ad blocker for your favorite web browser (like Adblock)Adblock Plus and (a little) more: Attention NoScript users
Recently I wrote about how not giving extension developers a good way to earn money might lead to very undesirable effects. The recent events give an impression of the kind of effects we should expect here. This is going to be about the popular NoScript extension which happens to make its money from ads.
"NoScript was extended by a piece of obfuscated (!) code to specifically target Adblock Plus and disable parts of its functionality" hoooboy
NoScript might be somewhat extreme but the “business offer” emails I occasionally see in my inbox make me think that we will see more of this. Companies start to recognize the potential of Firefox extensions and push extension authors into monetizing their extensions by questionable means — at the expense of the users. <how to disable the change page: see See http://noscript.net/faq#qa2_5 it says: disable this feature by opening about:config (just like it was a normal web address) and toggling off the noscript.firstRunRedirection preference>

Update 3 (2009-05-04): NoScript author made an official statement on the events.
Important for anybody who thinks that NoScript is the saviour of your privacy: nope, not so much.Why Ad Blocking is devastating to the sites you love
