My ads aren't showing - but Yahoo says they are

They even sent me a screenshot

Ok this is just weird. I setup a new search marketing account a few days ago and I have yet to see my ad displayed on Yahoo.com once. I have 100s of keywords setup and have tried searching for dozens of them, and I never see my ad - even when the YSM dashboard says its average position is 1 or 2.

I inquired about this and Yahoo emailed me back saying my ads are being displayed blah blah blah and even included a screenshot. I thought that was pretty interesting.

My daily budget is well above what it needs to be, so that is not a problem. Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on here? How can it be that I can search on dozens of keywords, which are all supposedly ranked 1-3, and not see a single ad of mine? I've tried at various times throughout the past few days ...

I use Firefox with AdBlock (there are similar options for other browsers) and have blocked numerous types of ads, including google and yahoo text ads. Never see them.

So, if I want to see them I have to turn off the adblocking entirely to tell if they're working. You could have an issue like this, would work just as you describe.
