It looks like it, I had ad.tomshardware.com in my hosts file and it still loaded up an image from there in FireFox. So I ask, where is firefoxes equivalent?

The HOST files has to do with local DNS control and should be separate from the web browser. However, if using Firefox there is a plug-in called Adblock that works well.
