    @Psyck
    Thanks again for taking the time to advise me on AdBlock. I’d really appreciate it if you could spare a bit more time on the “AdBlock for Dummies” step by step version as I’m not too computer savvy. I use Win7/64 with FireFox.

    I got as far as: FireFox -> Options -> Content …?
    I downloaded AdBlockPlus from http://adblockplus.org/en/ but can’t find it either as a desktop icon or in “All Programs”… Try to think of it as showing your Grand-dad how to do it. In fact, if you’re under thirty, he’s probably younger than me. :)

    Thanks for that olli!

    Hold off for now Psyck. I'll study this for a day or two and see how I go... Probably be back to you first time I hit another brick wall. ;))

    Doesn't it install itself when you tell Firefox you want to download/install it?

    Yep, I guess it did mate, I just can't find it! I'm just back from a few days in hospital and a bit fuzzy and disorientated still. I'll spend some more time on it when I'm a bit more clear-headed.

    Preferences > General > Add-ons > Manage Add-ons ... > Extensions > AdBlock Plus > Preferences > Filter Preferences.

    Or on a Mac I can press "Cmd /" to bring up the Firefox status bar and in the ABP pop-up menu select "Filter preferences ..."

    Got that far at least, I'll play with it a bit more when time permits. Got some other catching up to do. Thanks a lot!

    How do I filter out the "You May Also Like to Buy" section
    and the "Clearance" section
    and, well, actually everything after the the first two lines that say something like
    Thank you, we have received payment for order 120928001111111111.
    Your order is currently being processed and prepared for shipment.
    in the order received acknowledgement emails?

    I think these are the two I use for the two Other Customers Have Also Bought sections

    dx.com##div#proBoxByOverView
    dx.com##div#proBoxByDiscussions

    You can get the name of the div (section) in Firefox by right clicking and choosing Inspect Element. Sometimes the enclosing div is better to block.
