from today the placement of advertising on Geekzone seems a little bit off.
I am getting this on almost all forum pages

Wonder if it's release related to Firefox - I'm not getting this in Chrome. Have you tried a different browser?

I tested this on Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox. Not seeing this. So it is probably a specific combination.

Firefox 28.0 on openSUSE 13.1
Chromium displays fine.

This afternoon this problem wasn't present.
I haven't applied any updates in over a week that might have caused this.

edit: clearing history, cache etc . .  problem still present

Also, which ad blocker are you using?

This is my test Firefox (on Windows):

I suggest you use Chromium for a while. I'm investigating this one...

seems like it might be related to adblock plus somehow.
If I disable adblock universally then the problem isn't present.
Re-enable adblock with an exception for Geekzone then the issue is present again (sporadically)

is adblock being confused by the presence of this advertising?



If I enable adblock fully the above advertising is still shown in geekzone (I guess because it is being fed by geekzone itself.)

With an exception added for geekzone then I sometimes get one of the above types of ads at the top followed by a misplaced google ad

what confuses me though is it only started happening tonight without me updating anything at all.
Have there been changes on geekzone today?

Possible. I've forwarded this to be checked.
