    What the hell did I do?

    All of a sudden when I am in this site, I get a tab on the left hand side of the page, entitled "Tweets". Where the hell did that come from? How the hell do I get rid of it?

    Also, somehow I got directed to the social groups page which I had never paid attention to and I could not get back to the forum even to post this thread.

    How do I get rid of "tweets"... Please! I find that tab annoying.

    If using firefox and have the AdBlock Plus add-on, block the tab with AdBlock.

    I had it for a bit, but it's gone now, just as mysteriously as it appeared.

    Okay, it has disappeared for me as well.

    I hope it is not a preview of things to come!

    Don't have that add-on at the moment MM, but if that persists, I will be installing it.

    Thanks all,

    Here's where that's coming from:

    static.tweetboard.com/widget/images

    It appears to be a feature USMB is adding. It didn't get there by accident.

    It makes really very little sense to be running firefox without AdBlock. Only takes 5 minutes to get it and subscribe to a filter, then after that all adverts and anything else you don't want to see is gone forever.
