I noticed some time ago that this was happening, and I see that there was a discussion in 2010 about this, and several tweaks, but this is still an occasional issue for me. I use Firefox, IE8 and Chrome on XP.

Are you sure it's not how far in on the page you are zoomed? Mine was on 120 % because the text was a bit small on my monitor, so when I viewed that link the text on the right side ended up being covered by the ads for the last 2 or so words on each line.

Changing my Zoom back to 100 % and it all fits on the page again as it usually would.

Edit: This is on Chrome

Is the advertising missing on the left hand side? is there an ad blocking extension active?

I use 1920x1080 and I get the same issue when using chrome on 120% or larger zoom. Just change it back to 100%. I don't have ads either....

I didn't even go there. Because

1.It's Sunday
2.Someone is blocking ads
3.Therefore I wouldn't even touch.

But I'm in a good mood. However... I will be changing things on Geekzone this week.

With Chrome and Firefox I can zoom out to 75-80% and get the full text but then the text is too small for me to read comfortably!

But being a subscriber you also have the option of not showing the sidebar - that would add a few more pixels to the width of the content box. Are you using that option? It's very handy.

My Apologies everyone... its been so long since I have viewed GZ on Chrome with the zoom larger than 120% as it didn't display correctly (for me anyhow). Now that I have just tried it again, it works perfectly ;). 

Freitasm, yes I have both sidebar and ads turned off... which is actually the reason I subscribe.. plus I browse GZ on a near daily basis, so I thought I better contribute something. Those guilt purchases really do work don't they ;)

What does this mean? That I have to enable ads in my browser to be taken seriously?
