You need to be more specific about forum rules #13 "No ad blocking discussions". In my opinion ad blocking discussions should be allowed. As long as the discussion doesn't involve ad's that support this forum or the forum it self. That's just my opinion.

It's nothing do do with FF being out of date (even if the OP is using an outdated version) - see here:

Sorry - Site owner's rules and we have to respect them.

Anyway to stop malicious flash content running automatically when you visit an infected page see this:

Get this addon:

Click to Play per-element :: Add-ons for Firefox

In about:configpreferences - Firefox - type about:config in Firefox address bar then press Enter and accept the warning.

In the search box find:
plugins.click_to_play and set to "true"
plugin.sessionPermissionNow.intervalInMinutes set it to 0 (zero)

On about:addons (plugins page) flash plugin must be "Ask to activate"
That will not affect any content on this site except flash videos and you can click to activate playback.

RE: Your specific problem. Those scripts are hosted on sites with rapidly changing URL's so it's not possible to use hosts file blocking. When visiting sites that attempts to run scripts or prompt you to download or run a script it's best to set file associations for .js files as suggested.

If you get the other suggested noscript addon just allow scripts only on trusted sites.
