I'm also a big fan of adblock:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10

Filterset.G is an addon to adblock that automatically updates it with
some common (annoying) ad sources:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1136

Also, Bork Bork Bork! makes a great prank!  :)
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/507
