blacklisting/whitelisting domains or IPs for plugins seems relatively easy to program, but that doesnt do a think about click-thrus where you cant get to any content without finding the No Thanks button down at the bottom someplace to continue to the next page. Mozilla needs a way to fetch the click-thru page, locate the URL of the real content that follows, and then fetch that page, without ever fetching any images or other junk on the click-thru page, or even beginning to render it. That seems magical from a programming standpoint, however, so much less likely to happen :(
