Pop-up ad

Someone's violating your no-pop-ups policy. Firefox blocked this:

Here's the source:

<div id="ad_box"><!-- MAC ad --><div style="text-align:center"><img src="" width="120" height="10" alt="advertisement" /><br /></div><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" height="250" width="300" alt="Click Here" border="0" /></a><script language="javascript" src=" MAC [r20070424-1820-ronr-v1-13-4-listreplacesdeque:1.13.4] 2007. --><!-- MAC T --></div>

  1. I have also gotten the questionmarket pop-up on Chowhound on a computer that didn't have a blocker.
    It's obviously a problem that still hasn't been fixed.

    1. I got a pop-up blocked on this site as well today.

      1. I normally use Firefox with adblock and noscript so I never noticed any pop ups.
        I just used IE 7 to test page load times and had the same pop up.

        That pop up also took 2 minutes to load in.

          Popups are definitely still there, thank god Firefox blocks them.

          Questionmarket every time. Not only that, but many times when I load a page, at the bottom left of my browser where it says "transferring data from", it's coming up with a message that says "transferring data from"

          I'd recommend getting a good ad blocker if running IE.

            I get no pop-ups with IE6. I do get slow loading and no Edit > Copy.
