Google AdSense Forum

default firefox blocks adsense!
how come?

After installing firefox on a newly formatted computer, I found out that adsense ads don't show up at all. No extensions whatsoever installed.

Why would Mozella do such a thing?
And how come google is silent about this?

Only now I realized why our earnings dropped so much in the last several months.

The default installation of Firefox comes with no ad blocking extensions and so you should see the ads in the browser.

Are you able to view Google Ads in IE or a different browser ?

If not, please check your hosts file.

Firefox on the Mac shows AdSense ads just fine. Default settings.

Yes, in IE browser all adsense ads show up fine.
Now that you mentioned it, this blocking seems to happen only in my site.
Could it be some code I'm using that is blocking it, only in firefox?

I've finally found out the reason. Its specific to those who use an IPB forum. There is a bit of code that needs to be removed. The details are here:
