The Browser urgently needs some adblocking functionality. I am not sure but it
feels like all that flashing stuff on the screen disturbs more on the small
screen estate of the 770. But then maybe I am no longer accustomed to the

Yes, you are absolutely right. I further think a pop-up blocker is also very
urgent required. The common user will be confused by the current pop-up handling.
These will pop up and fill the whole screen, equal as a common browser window.
On common devices, these pop-ups allow the user to still see parts of the
originally browsed site. There, the user can click the originally window back to
the front. I agree that on such small devices pop-ups also must fill the whole
screen to display all necessary information, but given that there must be a
nifty way to control this. 

Because internet browsing is at least a if not *the* main use case of the
device, I think this is a top priority enhancement. Therefore I have raised the
priority to P1.

Having mini-Mozilla with the adblock extension would be perfect.

Nokia 770 has the option to block pop-up windows. However, there is no
support for blocking advertisements (e.g. those implemented with Flash).
Resolving as WONTFIX with regard to Nokia 770.
To be considered when specifying the next products.
