Can't get to e-mail until ads load

Can't get to e-mail until ads load

What a pain in the neck!  Mail comes up and you have to sit there and wait for the stupid ads to load before you can click and read your messages.  Really?  In the good old days, this wasn't a problem. 

 

What's it going to take to get a system that's actually user friendly?

All ISPs use advertising for the revenue stream. You do have some control over what ads you see. Underneath any ad on the right side of the screen, click on "Ad Info". Or just go to this link-------------

http://xfinity.comcast.net/adinformation/

That will explain how you can opt out of some, but not all advertising. Or-----use a browser add-on called "AdBlock Plus". That will eliminate all of them. An even better option would be to use an email client like Mozilla Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail. That way you don't even have to look at the Comcast UI, and no ads.
