they start out as banner ads then they extend out off of it. it has a close button on it. It has scripted odd. If I come across it I'll screen it and show you.

I've had two credit card ads come on. Maybe last 2 to 3 seconds and then they disappear. That was last night. My popup blocker is on and my messanger is off.

Do they extend without your input?

Oh I thought you meant just the banner at the top, and with those yeah you can just right click and block all images from whatever location, but I've never had those pop up in Firefox, didn't even say they blocked anything ha!

That's it but I didn't get a jewelry ad. Mine were AMEX card ads.
David I think your advertisers are taking liberties again.

this may be a problem if they decide to bundle spyware in those ads also. watch out for any ad people like that. that use any type of adanced scripting to disply them
