    Could you make sure that you do not copy a space or an additional character when trying to insert a new slot ID? That's the only thing I can think of that may stop you from updating the ID.

    I am sure that I did not added a space while copying. To test this, I even typed a random number to see if that was updating. But after saving it again showed the old slot id.

    I uninstalled the plugin completely and re installed it. Strangely the publisher id and ad slot id was there already when I activated the plugin after the install.

    My Firefox does not store any sorts of history and do not cache anything since I have configured it that way to help with my web development profession. This rules out any possibility of browser caching.

    I loved this plugin much that I was not in a mood to leave it. Finally decided to directly paste the ad-sense code in the custom script box to get it to work.

    I have explained all that I did hoping it will be useful to for debugging.

    Could you try to remove the slot ID and save your changes to remove the old one? DOes that work?

    If that doesn't help, could you let me know what other plugins are currently active on your site, so I can try to reproduce?

    Thanks much for your response,

    I tried removing the slot ID and did a save. It then showed 0 in the slot id space.

    Then I pasted the new slot ID and hit Save, again the old ID came back form nowhere.

    The plugins I use are
    Jetpack [cache and cdns are turned off]
    All in one SEO plugin
    Google Analyticator
    Google XML Sitemaps
    Use Google Libraries

    Thanks for the extra details. It's weird, I can't reproduce the issue.

    Could you try to reset all your Mobile Ad plugin options, by installing and activating this small plugin?

    Once you've installed it and activated it, visit the Mobile Ad Settings page to confirm that all the values were deleted. Then, deactivate and delete that small plugin, and try to add your Mobile Ad Settings again.

    Let me know how it goes.
