I just got back visiting my mother over the weekend and when I sign in to DaniWeb my browser (Firefox) crash not once but twice? Making money from clicking ads? I click the ads a few times because I didn't know what was gonna on? You should earn 75¢ for the first click and the other will be 5¢ or 2¢ repeatedly depending how many different kind of adsense you have. Right now, since I read this thread I feel much relieve. I thought I was getting high because it does look like Optical Illusions when you hover over the ads! But anyway, my main concern is my browser crashing when I'm on DaniWeb I don't know why?
lol, OK so I wasn't seeing the ads because of NoScript but I was getting the fade effect which was highly confusing until I found this thread. I had seen the "No Ads" user profile option but for some reason had assumed that it wouldn't work since I'm not a paying member. However I have enabled it now and everythings fine. What a fantastic option to have thank you.
Seriously, I'm afraid the fading effect is making me feel nauseous.
It could be the diagonal hatching that's causing this - nothing to do with a dislike of intrusive advertisements. Patterns or strobe effects can sometimes cause unexpected problems for people, something you may need to be aware of here.
Update: I've since checked 'Disable ads' on the edit profile page to avoid the fading effect.
Posts are pouring in to this thread. SO i guess many of the users can actually see the 2nd page, or must be posting from the first page itself. Well! Makes me wonder, what if there are enough posts to make it to 3rd page, will i be able to open the third page????
works fine for me and I'm on Chrome too. However, I noticed that the tab title is 2(1x1) - have a look at this page - I noticed that you're using Kaspersky - the page mentions this as being a possible issue. It provides solutions too.:
Is this new with the update? I always thought it WAS a paid feature. Never noticed that little check-box till you mentioned it. How long's that been there?
Haha! As far i remeber it was there from the begining. But i never cared to mark it, because i thought it was a paid feature. Well earlier with Antibanner enabled in KAS, the site never even showed any free space, that was until fading effect was introduced, i started getting white blank spaces.
And Thank U So much Dani for not making it a paid feature. CJ
It was annoying because it was a bit harder to disable with AdBlock, I had to right click on ad, then click on AdBlock > Disable this ad and then use the slider to find the 'sweet spot' - the id or class of element to disable. But once I don't that I never saw another ad or any fading nonesense again.
I highly recommend everyone to use Chrome with Adblock - but don't confuse it with AdBlock Plus - I think AdBlock plus is a different extension, AdBlock works the best.
