I am trying to download, Adblocker, but when i go to the sight it comes up save to Firefox, which i am using. When i click on the save to Firefox, can someone tell me where it has gone as i don´t seem to be able to find it to run it, if it has gone anywhere. What am i doing wrong. Or is there anything else that will stop the annoying adverts. Thank you.

Hit CTRL+Shift+A on your keyboard, then select Extensions. There you'll see Adblock Plus and the options.
