I notice that the search drop down appears under the Shopzilla ad. Not cool!

Trish, it's a random thing I think. It's not visible all the time.

Just one more reason I love using Firefox instead of Internet Explorer. I have an ad blocker on my Firefox browser. I have not seen a single ad in years.

I use FF too. Where is that setting? I just looked in Options but it didn't appear to take effect.

I've got IE but I still haven't seen it. The Google pop up blocker is my best buddy!

It is not actually a setting. It is an ad on.

Load these two extensions and watch right away how the ads go away.

adblock

adblock filterset g

I am so annoyed by that ad! It's so hard to get to the search option!!!
I never get pop ups, with this one exception. It may hinder new members who aren't used to the search button's location.
