Owing to a very recent software update to Firefox, none of the usual ad-blockers can install, the problem relates to verification certificates and I understand that a resolution to the problem is being pursued.

Today, on this forum, all ads relate to bras, and other female undergarments having a provocative theme.

I might not bother installing an adblocker anymore :P

P.S. I did not click on any of the advertised links, honest :silly:

I use Firefox and Ghostery appeared along with Firefox. Occasionally when I open a site I am invited to disable my ad-blocker. I left click on the Ghostery icon then click "Pause Ghostery" and then I'm able to open the site. A little while later the adblocker is reinstated.

Firefox has now put a fix in place for the 'extensions signature glitch'.

I took the opportunity to change my ad-blocker to this one , it cuts out even more ads than adblocker-plus.

You do realise that these ads are tailored to your browsing preferences and history?.......... :P

Most recent caravan reviews

Bailey Phoenix 440 - Decals on the side of the 440 feature a distinctive colour, purple, and have the same pattern with the large 'B' at the rear that you find on all Bailey models (© Practical Caravan)
Knaus Sport Silver 400LK - The Knaus Sport Silver 400LK is a compact family model. Although the door is not on the UK side, build quality throughout is first class (© Practical Caravan)

Lunar Ariva

£17,199

Lunar Ariva - Well-equipped and compact, the Ariva reaches its 25th year in 2020; perhaps that might be the time to give the profile a bit of an uplift? (© Practical Caravan)
Bailey Pegasus Rimini - The new Pegasus is now 8ft wide, but its profile remains pretty much the same, except for smart new graphics (© Practical Caravan)
