How to get the ad to stop?

Every time I go to the PenFed home page, I get this splash .jpg that is pushed in my face:



Anyone know how to disable this beast? Ad block on Firefox doesn't seem to stop it.

Thanks.

It is a rotating panel of three promotions, one every few seconds, including the two below. You may see it as an ad, but PenFed probably considers it part of their home page, no different from any other bit of information found there. I don't have a clue how to stop it..

I use Adblock with Chrome. Just use "block an ad on this page", and move the slider past the "wrappers" (about midway).

Still can't seem to get it to work with FF. I can get the box empty, but it is still there. This is a PIA, for sure.

Do you know where it lives in Firefox (v 26)? I can't find the location.
