#17 Annoying alert message in 1.3b

There is an annoying change in 1.3b

If you use "hosts" file in windows to block "adservers". Mozilla will "Alert" you that the "Document contains no data". I even used the file "cookperm.txt" from <http://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/> to prevent Mozilla from loading images from those same servers. I still get the same message.

Duh, this is the idea behind blocking ads. Why on earth do I have to click "OK" every time an Ad is blocked. I know that Mozilla is telling you that the IP address 127.0.0.1 is sending no data back, but this is a pain in the neck.

Please get rid of this "Alert".

Is there a preference to disable this message?
