Some movie type files wont play any more but I'll forego them to have a less spammy browser. Another option is to use Firefox - same but different than Internet Explorer.
Thanks Ultradog,
I have removed Flashplayer and ActiveX and the ad is gone but replaced by an empty white or black box where the ad was that still occassionally blocks the drop down boxes.It is an improvement though.Looks like Firefox will be the way to go.

[quote=AZstreamin]load Mozilla Firefox try it for a week you can always go back to IE...

Hi Az,

I keep IE on my quick launch and desktop next to the Mozilla Firefox..sometimes, if Mozilla experiences a problem and doesn't upload (very rarely), I'll go over to IE and try that..sometimes some websites/links don't open w/Mozilla, hence the backup w/IE.

codybear, I do the same IMO the best part about Mozilla is the search box for so many different sites... Firefox is not perfect but it doesn't seem to be as buggy as IE.

Hi Az,

Not to digress, but did you see the possible merger talks between Ford and GM?

I can't use Mozilla for the forum because it won't allow me to post. The only other site that has presented a similar problem was realtor.com

go figure

Sounds like the menu is showing up behind the flash movie (assuming this ad is a flash movie). This is common with DHTML menus and flash and can be corrected with some programming changes (setting the Z order). Adjusting your browser will eliminate or supress the flash movie thereby making the menu visible again, but this is something Andy might want to know about so he can setup the menu to handle these types of ads.

Those ads are served by Google and the advertisers have the ability to geotarget. So indeed it might only be serving to Canada. Just so you know they can even target cities and states, so all of us see different ads all the time...

As for it getting in the way, I have had reports of this on other sites and contacted Google. I will contact them again and see if there is any way we can get that fixed...

There are also link on the left hand side of most of the pages called "quick links" and from there you should be able to get to all the same places. So please use those links if you are having problems for now...

I bagged IE several years ago in favor of Netscape, and then Firefox, and never looked back. It's customizeable, takes fewer resources, and I've never had any problems with it.

I've used Mozilla Firefox for a couple of years now both at home & work, no problems and won't go back! Give it a try ~
