Is anyone else finding it difficult to use the 'search' function, cos that sushi plate advert is obscuring half the search box?!:smile:

I don't get it on mine Ishbel. Is your pop up blocker turned up high enough? That would really tick me off if I couldn't get to the search function. Is it still happening?

Ishbel - that used to happen to me too - oddly enough you can still use it - you just can't see what you are typing. Even with a pop-up blocker that ad still shows. Do you by chance use Firefox? Until I installed Adblock as an extension on Firefox it did get in the way (or whatever ad was there at the time). Now the ad doesn't even show. :clap:

Just go to another page to use that search feature.

I don't see the ad either and I use a free pop up stopper.

I do have pop up blockers installed, but had to allow some pop ups in order to register with certain sites.. If I set it too high, I can't access those sites:wacko:

I'll just type in the words and hope I haven't put any typos in the 'search'!:lol:

...typos could be interesting, huh?

I take it you don't use Firefox/Mozilla?

I see that you do use Firefox - You need to update to the new version. There are two extensions you need to download - Adblock and there's another one that goes with it - GB will know.

The other extension is Adblock FiltersetG Updater.
Once you load those too Ishbel, you will not have any problems with any ads like that ever again.

I am happily add free with Firefox! Hooray!:clap: Now if I could just install Firefox on my TV to get rid of all the mudslinging :furious: political ads I'd be the happiest camper in the world.:lol:

GB 10-30-2006 03:33 PM

Wouldn't that be great Katie!

Ishbel 10-30-2006 04:44 PM

Errrm, my daughter (the tekkie one) installed all the software on my puter... I didn't think I used firefox, I THOUGHT I used IE...:smile: She's in Lebanon at the mo - I'll ask her when she gets back to the UK next Wednesday!
