    Firefox Problem? AT&T Ad

    Whenever there is an AT&T banner ad I don't get any scroll bar and have to keep refreshing the page until a new ad comes up in the banner spot. Is anybody else having this problem? Should I use a different browser? Thanks!

    I'm having some problems with getting the whole page to load beyond the top banner, but it's not just with AT&T's ad.

    I'm having problems, too. That ATT ad seems to hang in firefox a lot of the time.

    Have you tried the Firefox add-on ******* Plus? Also found advice from Firefox support: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/670834

    Can't quite picture the problem, but maybe one of these suggestions would help.

    Thanks Redbird! The problem in the link seems to be related to some sort of malware problem but I've installed ******* Plus and it makes the banner ad disappear! I'm hopeful that will solve the problem.

    I have had it happening most of this week. The AT&T banner ad using Safari. I have found that if I hit reload two or three times in a row, the whole page will finally load. Just now however it took hitting reload about five times.

    All of that is in addition to the off and on extremely slooooooooow loading of pages.

    I am not complaining so much as simply describing symptoms that may or may not be correctible.

    For those using google chrome, install ******* Plus for free. I never see advertisments.

    I just installed ad block and it seems to be working. The ads on this site make it almost impossible to enjoy reading here. My pages won't fully load, if at all. I wish the owner of WS would try to work this out. Great site except for ad annoyance.
