Just this evening it seems that every website I go to looks as follows. Need to disable adbloker/use safari to be able to do anything. Anyone have any ideas? MacOS 10.13.5 Chrome  68.0.3440.106

Looks like not applying any CSS or pulling data from non https (or other way around)




DevTools/F12 is always at your disposal to look at page sources etc for errors..

For starters - Remember, Geekzone is ad-supported and whitelisting is appreciated around here to support our whisky fund. Mauricio has not been taking us out as often as he used to.


However I note you're using "Adblock" or "Adblock Pro" - Just note, these are not recommended if you want browsing privacy as these send usage stats back. You're best to use uBlock Origin which is an opensource and fast ad blocker:


Google Chrome:


With the default options this will block ads and also block tracking - no need for any further extensions.


Also please be wary of any other extensions you have installed as many do track you. Ghostery is a good example as it is owned by an advertising company and collects data.

Try a different ad blocker such as ublock Origin and see if that helps.
