I had been noticing that some blog sites were not behaving quite as they should. So I wondered if I had AdBlock turned on and maybe that was causing the problem.
I checked (with the rekonq browser), with:
Options icon –> Tools –> AdBlock
And, sure enough, it was turned on. So I turned off AdBlock.
The first page that I visited after that was at Ed Brayton’s blog at FreeThoughtBlogs.
The page was difficult to read, because there was an advertisement in a very wide left margin. There was a “close” button on that ad. I clicked the “close” button. Immediately, a full page ad showed up.
I did the obvious thing. I turned AdBlock back on.
