Stop Vibrant pop-ups in Firefox

I got so sick of those Vibrant pop-ups (green underlined words all over this site) that I did a quick search to figure out how to stop them in Firefox since normal pop-up blockers don't work. Now I no longer get them and I am a happy lurker so I thought I'd share how to do it.

1) Install the Firefox add-on Greasemonkey from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

2) After restarting Firefox, install the script for Greasemonkey from here (intall button in upper right): http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/3637

And Viola! No more annoying Vibrant pop-ups.

Weird, I only noticed those while browsing with another browser recently. I don't see them in Firefox, probably because of *******.

*******, flashblock, no-script, and greasemonkey are some of the best addons out there.

THe only ads on HFBoards I ever recall seeing are the banner ads at the top of the page. No crazy pop out ones or underlined words or anything.
