User Support & Resources - Trouble with Firefox + Adblock...
04-03-2011, 09:55 PM
Found my problem, but not a solution (yet). On 04/02, my forum "face" changed drastically. Traced the problem to "Adblock Plus", an add-on for Firefox. Everything looks fine with it disabled, but when enabled it looks like the enclosed pic. Besides the absolute fugliness of it, enough key features are missing to make it totally unusable. So, now I have to disable my Adblock every time I logon here. What's up with that ? ? ?

Adblock's recent "Easylist" update basically blacklisted most of IB's stuff. That's why it turned to crap. It did the same to me. I manually whitelisted all of IB's stuff so the forums look normal again.
What I DO NOT like about LS1tech is how the sponsor ad panels on the side must have a rotating/constantly changing web address or something that houses them. I purposely whitelisted ALL of their tiles, because I wanted to see them in case I wanted to buy from one of them, and also to help with support for the site, but then at some point LS1tech changed it so the coding for those tiles kept changing so now unless I update my whitelist every single day the sponsor banners are blocked yet again. And now, the part of the code that is the holder for them is so convoluted I can't even figure out which one is the sponsor tiles. Sigh. Their loss, my loss, everyone loses on that one.

You need to go to your filter and remove ibsrv.net from being blocked if you want the forum to display normally.

I have got confirmation from the adblockplus people that ibsrv.net has been removed from the easylist in the most recent update. Please update your own easylist if you're still experiencing problems with the site.
