Default Issue with FireFox and Horizontal Banner

I've been using Firefox to view my pages. Once I started work on chapter 8 and the banners I had a strange issue pop up. The Horizontal banner does not display in the About Us page when viewed with Fire Fox. I am using FF 3.5.7 with Windows 7. I get the same issue with planetwrox.com About Us page as well. If I view the page source it shows the HTML for the banner and if I click on the link to the image there in the HTML source it displays the image just fine in my browser. However it will not display on the page at all. Now if I view the About Us with IE 8 the banner shows up. I'm guessing this is some odd quirk with FF but I have no idea what it would be.

Thanks.

Hi there,

Can you provide more details, and maybe liink to a screenshot? The page looks fine in Firefox 3.6 for me. Maybe you're running an ad-blocker that blocks the banner on that page?

The vertical Ad shows up just fine and I do not see the normal add block tag when the vertical banner shows up. As I said when you look at the page source code it shows the link to the banner.

Snapfish Link for screen print

Might be some sort of quirk with 3.5.7 then. As you can see in the screen show the vertical banner shows up but the horizontal banner is not showing.

Do you have a Norton product running, like Norton Internet Security?

What happens when you replace the horizontal image with the vertical one?

I am running McAfee.

The vertical image is displayed no matter what page it is on.

What I meant was: replace the ImageUrl of the horizontal image with that of the vertical. You should then end up with two vertical banners so you can see it's the code or the image that's causing the problem.

My guess is that the image is blocked my McAfeee because of it's size. It looks like an ad....

Ok I found it. It was the adblock plus plugin that I had in FF. I had to dig into it to find the correct rule setting.


Thanks again for your help.

I had the same problem with the horizontal banner.
I wonder how ad block plus distinguish between the horizontal and the vertical banner!

The horizontal banner has a "known banner size": http://www.google.nl/#hl=nl&q=standa...r+sizes+486+60

Cheers,
