I strongly suggest both of you try NoScript, if you aren’t already doing so.
What does NoScript do?
Already got it. I’m inclined to think that some places have figured out a way to turn it off for their site if you temporarily allow scripts for that site. I go out about every other day and check through the things that are allowed by Noscript and delete anything I’m not sure about.
Also try PROXPN, it’s free.
