    Angry Flash-Based Ads: There's Something Wrong!

    The flash-based ads that are showing in the upper left corner of the forum is broken somehow, it keeps freezing the browser on every page I've gone to.

    Please look into it.

    Guessing you're referring to the 728x90 rectangle? Do you know which ad freezes things up or does it not load?

    I don't deal directly with the ad set-ups anymore but I can talk to the people who do.

    I don't know which ad is doing it, but I do know it only started a few days ago with the flash-based ads.

    Okay, it appears to be the "Neverwinter" ad that's doing it, sometimes it takes forever for the site to load, but then it does, but still freezes the browser, and if I get to the site without the loading issue, the ad still freezes the browser.

    Okay, seems the recently released Flash update that I installed a few hours ago fixed the problem, because it started happening on another site I visit as well, and it's no longer doing it there either.
