    I love firefox add block plus but i am having problmes with it here at USBM.

    I can block the adds but in doing so it ALSO blocks the avatars and my option buttons in the posts, IE: the quote and thank you buttons.


    Any ideas on how to fix this one?

    You should have checked the last option...the one that begins with the word custom...otherwise you left the default one checked and you blocked almost everything.

    You might need to go into "show existing filters" and delete all your USMB ones and then start over.

    Edit - Preferences - Content - Under 'Block pop-up windows > Exceptions, in Address of website box type www.usmessageboard.com then click on Allow.
    Adds will still be blocked by AdBlock but you should be able to view everything else.

    Oh yeah, do this with Firefox open. Forgot to add that.... Oops.
