I just noticed that my Firefox referral buttons dissapeared. Did somebody noticed that too? What's going on?

That post is about Adsense referral only not about Firefox referral (or any other)

td22, the link you provided regards referrals for AdSense signups.

jozko, referrals for Firefox with the Google Toolbar seem to still be available. [google.com...]

You may want to check with adsense-support@google.com.

It's gone here too. I checked the firefox referral in my adsense account and it's still available there. Hmmm.

Thanks for reporting this issue. I've escalated it to our tech specialists for investigation and will let you know when I find out more.

In the meantime, I recommend clearing your cache and cookies and restarting your browser before viewing your page again, in case the issue is related to an client-side settings.

Also, the changes described in the blogpost apply only to AdSense referrals, not to referrals for Firefox or any other product.

Thanks for your patience,
ASA

text links seem to work though...

is there such a thing as a "button" server?

LOL.

The same problem here.

Same here.

I was displaying a large text link in place of the button, but the text link is gone now too. Hopefully, somebody will reboot the servers and get things back up and running. This seems to happen about every other month -- hopefully, this time, it won't be a several day outage.

I see text links on my site but it doesn't generate any revenue.
