After searching, I see that many linux users are seeing these ads and I am using linux (ubuntu) so perhaps it really is just us, but it would be nice to see this fixed.
Here's a google support forum url that talks about it but no resolution is listed. [google.com...]
Anyone here seeing these ads?
P.S. Oh and yes I blocked the url but they still show up.
Lots of java apps and ajaxy goodness goes wonky on a number of different Linux distros.
So if I had to guess (and it's really only a guess), I'd say the JRE on Linux is the problem.
I've also noticed a distinct upswing in the problem on systems I've moved from Ubuntu 8.04 to 9.04. Java that worked before, doesn't now.
Without attempting to place blame, all the Linux distros have trouble displaying Flash properly -- or to turn it around, Flash has trouble porting itself to Linux. I am running 64-bit versions on all my Linux machines and, until quite recently, Flash was a lost cause.
If it weren't for Flash and Quickbooks, I could live quite nicely without Windows.
@jhood: if you are using the 64 bit version of Flash PLayer, I thought that was still an alpha version?
That domain is in a domain park and is available for sale.
Assuming the ad actually clicks through to that actual domain seen in AdSense I would've checked to see how much they wanted for the domain and kept mum about the problem.
Why waste free opportunity?
