One of the reasons I love the IPad app for DC is there are no ads. When I go to the site with FF on my PC, it just seems so busy.

Ahhh thank you!
I am not alone!

Sometimes the ad networks get ads injected that are over the top, or even malicious.

I will pass this thread higher up so it can be looked into. Do you remember the product the ad was for?

Since I switched to Firefox with Ad Blocker...no ads.

Sorry, Frank. I don't remember what it was for. And it doesn't look like you can tell from my screenshot.
But if you're going to pass it further up ... I don't like child exploitation or animal abuse ads showing a chewed on, muzzled bear either. Kind of disturbing for a cooking forum.

I got two, Frank.
DC opened on the index page. I clicked on New Posts and a Xerox pop up vid started playing when the New Posts page loaded. There was no sound with this ad. You had the option of clicking for sound.
Then I clicked on back, then on this thread to mention the ad and another pop up vid started playing when this thread page loaded. This one for Auto Trader. No sound with this one either. I clicked my mouse's left button and the ad vanished (I thought) but really it just moved to the right side on my screen. Passing my cursor over the ad brings it to life. My cursor may have been hovering over the ad when the page loaded...
