Blackberry Ad on Firefox affects functionality

I know that we need advertising on this site but this one has caught me by surprise. It only seems to appear if you use Firefox. A "Page Leaf" appears at the top right of the screen and leads to the full page Blackberry ad. Similarly half way across the page at the top. Neat graphical ad.

It also prevents you from clicking on My Postings, Start New Subject and Contact Forum Editor! Now that`s intrusive and makes using Firefox an unacceptable experience. Anyone else found this?

Yes I get it but only with IE8 not with Firefox,but I have Adblock on Firefox.

I`ve got dblock Plus on mine too but it doesn`t block this. Possibly because my screen resolution is set at 1024 x 768 (I think) the ads are intruding into my viewing area.

Strange I don`t get it with IE8 though.

There have been several threads on this in helproom and speakers corner.
