google ads bar (top right of page) in firefox


y'all ever use your scroll wheel over that google ads banner from firefox?

--it's off by 4 pixels...

i checked out your source, and came up with this quick hack:

change the line
Code:
google_ad_height = 60;
to
Code:
google_ad_height = 64;

don't know if you even care, because this isn't a problem in IE, and it ain't really a problem in firefox... it's just one of those ticky little things...

(and since noticing this, i checked the tall-boy on the far right, and he's got the same/similar issue...)

The one on the top right (beside the LQ logo) I think.

I don't get that at all, perhaps because I disable jscript? (I don't have any special adblockers tho)

I am seeing the same thing in Mozilla. Thanks for the heads up. I'll see if I can contact Google to have it corrected. If not, I'll just fix it on LQ.

sweet, I guess this is another plus of disabling javascript, why all people don't just disable javascript instead of installing pop-up blockers I'll never know.
