hi all,

can anyone please help with the removal of the very large  'welcome to spotify' picture on the opening page of their website.

i am using a 10 inch screen netbook and the picture obscures the main function buttons.

 

thanks

bj

Hi bjr1000 :)

You cannot really remove explicitly content from a webpage if its been included in it. What I suggest you to do as an alternative however, is to install an Adblocker web extension on your browser, and add a rule for that "Welcome to Spotify" image. This way, when you go on the website, your Adblocker will block the image, "removing" it from your sight. How does that sound?

Did you manually add that image as content to be blocked by the Adblocker or not?

You are using Adblock Plus, this one, right?

Alright, now give me the exact URL (link) where you have the "Welcome to Spotify" that you want to block.
