    Google ads are built into the forum. The ad blocker may prevent the forum from loading, depending on the loading order of the content. For what it's worth, the Google ads pay to keep the site running...

    starting to wonder what version of Firefox all of you are running on right now..?? I am running on FireFox version 35.0.5
    curious to know ....did you update Firefox versions .....if so did you notice the trouble then? if your computer auto updated things,... might be able to look and see when it was done then see if that correlates to the trouble you are having. ........I dunno just a thought.

    I'm not sure why the forum is being blocked for some users as "malware" or "untrustworthy". I will ask my tech support again to see if there is anything amiss that I'm not aware of.

    Larry,

    I have not made any changes to the forum for years, other than standard software updates that shouldn't have any effect on how various browsers interact.
    I also run Firefox, and I'm not having any of the issues mentioned above. I just checked, and I'm running the current version of Firefox, which is 59.0.2. Updating your browser may solve the problems you are having. I'm curious what version of the Firefox browser others are using, that are also having issues with Firefox.

    Larry, that is a Jan 2015 version, I am surprised it didn't auto update at some point, I have version 52.7.5. Usually something that old (in computer years) stops working. And 52.7.5 I guess is not completely up to date, also is not working. I thought my Malwarebytes or Spybot was blocking the site anyway, maybe not the Firefox at all.
