Support » Fixing WordPress » Text Widget not working in Firefox 7 (PC)

  • I have a sidebar with a text widget. In this widget I have three images, two of which are exactly the same. The code is as follows:

    <a href="http://www.differentdezine.com" target="_BLANK"><img src="http://www.laredoreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/diff_dez_ad.jpg" width="250" height="250" class="adspace" /></a>
    <br />
    
    <img src="http://www.laredoreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/ad_placeholder.jpg" width="250" height="250" class="adspace"/>
    <br />
    
    <img src="http://www.laredoreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/ad_placeholder.jpg" width="250" height="250" class="adspace"/>
    <br />

    The situation is that the text widget appears as it should on all the browsers that I have (see list below) except on Firefox. It just pulls a blank in that area. Looking at the source code of the page, I can see that the code is there. When I use firebug to inspect it, though, the lines of code appear grayed-out for some reason.

    Is this just a Firefox 7 thing? Does anyone know? Can someone view the site using Firefox 7 to see if the sidebar text widget is blank for you as well?

  • I figured it out!!!! I have the Firefox Add on Adblock Plus activated and it was blocking the ads :/

    Disabling adblock plus immediately reveals the ad spaces.

    For anyone else who might have this problem, inspecting with firebug will show the code similar to this:

    -moz-binding:url(—THE URL TO THE IMAGE—) !important;
