Firefox problem

  Joe R 20:47 13 Jan 2006

Hi all,
My problem is that when I access the pc advisor website, everything is fine until the microsoft advert at the top of each page, runs it's streaming Java/flash animation.(if that is how it is done).

Then I cannot access the top half dozen or so threads, at the top of each page, as the cursor does not change, to allow me to click on the title.

As I say, it only seems to be at the top of each forum, and only in Firefox. (I.E. has no problems)

Anyone have any ideas what may be causing this. I am running firefox 1.5 on XP home.

I also run adblock, but it doesn't seem to be stopping this one.

Ah, I also run a hosts file click here

The hosts file worked a treat. Once again I owe you a pile of the frothing ale.

Thank you and regards. Joe

I also get that symptom.
I am currently using Firefox version 1.5

No problems here using FF1.5 and Adblock Plus. It works better than the old Adblock.

I have just installed Adblock and after whitelisting the whole site, I can now once again click on all the links!

I can still see the adverts (which is no problem) but they no longer affect being able to click on the links.
