Mozilla Plans to Sell Ads in Firefox Browser

Mozilla, the company behind the Firefox Internet browser, will start selling ads as it tries to grab a larger slice of the fast-expanding online advertising market,” Reuters reports:

Novice Firefox users now see nine blank tiles when they open up the browser, which fill in over time with their most-visited or recently visited websites. Now, Mozilla intends to display the most popular sites by location, as well as sponsored websites that will be clearly labeled as such.

Semi-serious question: will the Adblock Plus plug-in for the Firefox browser block the ads that Mozilla intends to place inside the Firefox browser?
