OpenDX is so crappy. It has a 2GB memory limit and can do nothing better than newer alternatives, such as VTK, and VisIt. I would avoid OpenDX if possible. No point in locking yourself into an ancient dead end platform.
Privoxy is your friend. It allows you to block ads using a local proxy, so it'll work with any browser. It isn't as easy to setup as Adblock, but it still works effectively.
