Block Unwanted Areas on Facebook, Google +, other

Are you as tired of sites like Facebook and Google Plus shoving things at you, like ads, Hangouts and areas they want to promote.

Firefox has a great feature called Add-Ons, where extra features people have developed can be added.

In Firefox, Go to Tools:Add-Ons. Search for AdBlock, and look for "Adblock Plus 2.4.1" and "Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus 1.2.3". Install both, and you will see a new round red ABP icon  at the top of your Firefox window.

 When you are on a page that has annoying areas, click on this icon and "Select an element to hide". Move your cursor over the areas you want to hide and when it is shown with a red border, click the cursor. These areas will automatically be hidden in the future.
