Without ads these site wouldn't exist so they must be in there.

Or use adblock plus for firefox!

Not all ads are coming from doubleclick or fastclick and even then some times the ads themselves are stored on the site that you're on. The only thing setting a block on doubleclick (and others) does is block the site directly.

AdBlock looks for a set of characters in the url that's in the HTML and blocks that.

I've been using FF and AdBlock for so long that I'm usually surprised and annoyingly reminded that YT has ads in the videos when I use any other broswer.
