Facebook URL cleaner should come in handy Move it to the top of your scripts in Greasemonkey with Alt-Up

Well, I don't really like the 'New Facebook' pages so that's fine. thanks!

Unfortunately, on the 'New Facebook' pages the script will not always block the sidebar ads. This is because of a new mechanism on the Facebook pages where when you click on 'Photos' or 'Inbox' etc., the page will dynamically change its content, instead of navigating your browser to another page. Greasemonkey only runs its scripts when a new page is loaded, or when you click 'Refresh'/'Reload' in your browser.

To remedy this, when you move to another page on the New Facebook, click 'Refresh'/'Reload' (Ctrl + R in Firefox) to have Greasemonkey run the NoFacebookAds script, and any others you may have installed for Facebook pages.

You need to add //div[contains(@class, 'sponsor')] to your rules list as well to gid rid of those awful social ads on the front page.

Updated to version 0.5. Now blocks the ad column on the right hand side of the 'New Facebook' layout.

hey guys. Thanks for your comments.
I'm glad to hear it's working well for you.

Mikkel, thanks for the tip. I might add it on to the script.

one of the useful scripts

I had to add "//div[@id='sponsored_links'] | //div[@id='sidebar_ads']" to the script to remove all my sideads.

Now also removes 'social adverts' such as the annoying Danish(?) barber adverts that seem to frequent my home page now...

Certain flyers weren't getting blocked; this is now fixed in version 0.2.
