Hi Carol and thanks. There are some addons to Firefox to turn off flash, but that might be the one that makes my mouse cursor suddenly disappear. I tried disabling flash too, but that always doesn't work on the right side of SE here. I am so glad of the tip to change at left bottom preference. I will never understand why a web site would choose to use this horrible flash when it is so disruptive to people.

You can disable flash and then you won't see them. I'm using my iPad which is not flash enabled so this is how I discovered this.
