Your Welcome!! Ain't it heavenly I do however feel bad for our other members that continue to take it on the chin when they can just make ALL ads go away with a little software patch..

I use firefox.
I also use a hosts file that blocks many ad servers, so that might be it. I do get a few advertisments on the sidebars, but nothing that pops up in front of the site content like in the edmunds ad document that saturnskydude posted.
Indeed that is what is is. I use the last version of Netscape navigator which is the daddy of the mozilla family of browsers of which Firefox is one of them. Another words, Firefox use to be called Netscape. With this browser we can download all kinds of patches to enhance the www experience. One of those patches just happens to be a free patch of Adblocker..

If it wasn't for the fact that Steve is running Firefox w/o Adblock on his computer, I wouldn't know what y'all are talking about. I probably wouldn't even care about it, but I keep hearing him yell, "Effin Ed.....!!!"

And before everyone starts to threaten to leave the site (sorry, too late, I guess) give the Doggie and Nadeem a chance to work on it. Apparently it just started today...relax...take a , take a break from the forum for a few hours and spend the time checking out Ad Block Plus. Seriously, you'll thank me and RedSkyMan for it.

This doesn't get rid of the fracking edmunds ad... ARGH!

I had to click it off multiple times just to quote you and type this response...

I disabled my AdBlocker and enabled my Flash blocker and the edmunds ad is gone.

FWIW, we're catching this from a subscription feed most likely and it will rotate in beyond our control. Other forums continue to have the same problem with the feed.

I also tweaked the thread title, but doubt this one is pulling from context. Could well be wrong either way, but when you hit a context sensitive ad, it can be fun to mess with your forum compatriots by seeding it.

cobraken1 I am a club member and find this drop down ad too much of an annoyance. I believe my visits here will be far and few between.
