Here is an interesting problem:
In IE7, some of the ads here on my site don’t show up for me. Specifically, the animated ones show up as a blank white rectangle. They work just peachy in Firefox.
The odd thing is that the same ads work just fine on other sites. I use the same advertising service as the Webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del, and over there I can see animated ads just fine in IE7.
So the problem only arises for:
- Animated ads
- On this site
- Using IE7.
All other ads work fine.
This makes no sense to me. For those of you using IE, can you look at the ads in the sidebar (I’m not trolling for free clicks, I just need you to look) and tell me if you see blank white boxes showing up? Or if you see ads playing which have animations?
If this is only a problem for me, then it’s no big deal. If the problem is more widespread then I need to figure out where things are going wrong. Either way, it’s one of those oddball mysteries that bugs me.
