blackberry ad

  johnnyrocker 19:54 28 Apr 2010

from time to time the ad appears with an instruction at top "click here to close ad" that is ok but i find when i do this i am left with a black screen and the word done at bottom left, only cure is to refresh the page, is it me or do others have same prob? XP pro sp3 etc


I have same prob. I fixed it by download foof from the Firefox add-on gallery. O rif you use IE download IE7 Pro and then enable Ad Blocker.

It is the same old problem with the Blackberry ad. I find that it rots up the My Posting link which gives me Blackberry/Vodaphone page without the links to get anywhere else.

I can just about put up with it when I first log into the forums but it pops up again and again when I change forums.For example I started off in speakers corner and had to see Blackberry add before looking at any in helproom,the same thing, I have to endure Blackberry ad again!!!!Quite frankly this will put me off visiting the forums unless it is changed.

A nice little ad-blocker if you don't want to use IE7Pro.
