not sure if anyone else is having this problem, but i'm getting a 'illegal character GIF89...' error in FF (also in IE - they just dont show up - no errors reported) when i visit sites (including my own) that have adsense ads on them. The ads just don't show up.
The file generating the error is the AdSense show-ads.js file. Anyone else experiencing this?
I recently wiped my computer and am pretty sure that thats not the problem - configuration, but wanted to narrow down the search for answers.

Ok, so i got this problem solved - related to Kaspersky Internet Security. Hopefully this post will help others when installing Kaspersky Internet Security
I found the following post: [forum.kaspersky.com...] (if this url gets removed, i typed 'kaspersky adsense' into google and the third link in the results, at the time, went to the post in the kaspersky forums)
After going through the method outlined therein, it still didn't solve the problem by unchecking the googlesyndication.com and googleadservices.com anti-banners masks. I added the two domains previously mentioned to the whitelist, restarted my browser (FF) and voila - they were back.
Again, hopefully this helps someone else out in the future. Thanks
