    Todd,

    They have a built in ad blocker! see this

    What can we do about this? No, it doesn't "only" affect CJ but I wanted to ask you first.

    That really takes the cake!

    Just how is the cost of the Internet supposed to be supported without advertising?


    No ads, no Internet, no need for Netscape.

    What are they thinking?

    Aw crap this is all we need. What ever next?

    Does it block text links? Does it block ads by default? anyone?

    Microsoft did plan something like that some time ago, not an ad blocker but smart tags that make keywords puchased through realnames clickable on any webpage. The last I heard they put the idea on hold but still plan to persue it.

    hey, two thread... copy & paste [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Haiko,
    I had this browser (browser of choice) on my last computer (up until about 3 weeks ago), and it is a problem with the browser rendering images.

    Pages would look fine in IE, but in NS they would not appear, have text flowing over the top of them.. all sorts of crazy stuff.

    It's probably more of a HTML/Cross-Browser/JS validation error than an "ad blocker"

    Haiko,

    I suggest you do some reading on the new features in the version you downloaded. I would be surprised if Netscape had a default setting that blocked ads. The easiest way to see if it is blocking ads is to go to AOL and see if the ads are blocked there. Since AOL owns Netscape and a majority of their revenues come from advertising, I can't imagine that they would release such a feature.

    I will download it and look into it to make certain it is not blocking ads.
