Adblock Plus + NoScript. I got sick and tired of getting viruses from ads on supposedly safe sites. I would never click on an ad from a website anyway. If the website would get money whether I click or not, then the ad maker still wouldn't be getting money, so I would just be contributing to a negative ratio of ads displayed to ads clicked on, causing the ad maker to eventually pay less or stop advertising on the site. I despise advertising of all sorts. If I want your product I will search it out and find it. Your flashing obnoxiously loud banner ad would just ensure I would never buy your product.

Ublock origin and Adblocker Ultimate. I stopped using Adblock plus because it didn't work on one particular site and this particular site popped up an ad that put a really bad virus on my computer that actually forced me to factory reset it just to get rid of the stupid thing.

Money.

Most ad-supported sites I visit will let me pay them a couple bucks a month to get rid of the ads. So I do that.

some sites about phones or games news are notorious with this

if you don't have some type of adblock or no script.. you will be getting those "your PC is infected" messages..

it's annoying with mobile device since it's hard to get out of it without having to close down the browser and clear all data within the app settings..

FireFox - NoScript to stop most things up front and then uBlock origin and uMatrix to handle what scripts permit through NoScript.

Chrome - just uBlock Origin.

I can't remember, but putting your browser on "Incognito mode" seemed to be more effective.
