I've only seen this in Firefox and Chrome. So far, it doesn't apply to IE

The arrow buttons are huge. I've already seen the 90x90 button size, and they are bad enough, but 336 wide !?!?

Talk about desparation on Google's behalf. No wonder CTR is down. They ruin any site.

And, you get a white band along the bottom of the advert. Okay if your site has a white background, but on anything else, it looks horrid.

I hope someone from Google is reading this and will do something about it, PLEASE.

Can you take a screenshot next time please?

Here's a good tip on how not to flash the advertiser:
On Chrome right click on ad text, go to inspect element and change the title, description, and link to something else. Then take a screenshot.

Cheers

Why next time? I took screen grabs this time, but not uploaded them to anywhere.

I have contacted Google, and they are looking into it.

If it's like what RedBar posted, then I've seen them on for quite some time.

Can you take a screenshot next time please?

Don't get angry now. I thought sharing a picture would be way more helpful than describing it.

I am not angry. I am really busy. I don't have time to blur them, open an account somewhere and upload them.
