Title: Flash error
Post by: shruggedatlas on December 25, 2007, 04:03:23 PM
Stefan, could you please look into the "mpire" flash ad that comes up?  It causes a flash error in both IE and Firefox for me.  I suspect others experience this too.  Thanks.

Mine works, I'm using firefox, although I wish I did get a flash error so I wouldn't have to load it.  :D

Hi All,

I also have had since this late morning  (GMT time was about 10:00 or 11:00h),  it knocked out my IE.

But it is good NOW since a few minutes!  Thanks!

Yes, happening to me ever since that ad was posted.  Sometimes I can shut of the flash reader, sometimes it kicks me back out to a google search that says "overunity.com could not be found"  This happens when I try to post on a topic.  you write the post, upload it and it says "overunity could not be found"  and your post is gone!!!!  I am using ie and get errors on that as well.

Joe, thanks for the malware tip I will have to do a scan.

Stefan, I am sure you can fix this. Thanks.

I have removed now all the widgetbucks ads.
It seems it needed an updated flash player version 9.x
and it did make too much loading..
Thanks for the tips.

Regards, Stefan.

Try using the "NoScript" plug-in for firefox.

Quote
The NoScript Firefox extension provides extra protection for Firefox, Flock, Seamonkey and others mozilla-based browsers: this free, open source add-on allows JavaScript, Java, Flash and other plugins to be executed only by trusted web sites of your choice (e.g. your online bank), and provides the most powerful Anti-XSS protection available in a browser.

Its gives you a list of the scripts being loaded into your browser from every page you load.

You can then temporarily allow them if you need them.

OU.com tries to load 6 scripts, I only allow 2 of them.

It stops google-analytics's reporting your every link-click and page visit

And for those STILL using "Microsoft Internet Explorer" you might as well go and leave your front door open  ;D
