About two weeks ago at Huffington Post. Normally when you mouseover an HP Slideshow, the window opens up to reveal an ad (that you can ignore) and simply click through the slideshow pics. This changed: when I now mouseover the Slideshow, the whole page disappears to be replaced by only the ad appearing on the page. You cannot page back, and can only reload the page, and the problem continues.
Of course this made HP nearly impossible to use, or read effectively.
There were two, one that is a workaround.
Workaround: this did not happen if I used Incognito Mode, but is a pain.
Permanent: I went to Tools/Extensions and disenabled Privdog. Problem solved, and Comodo now works as before - perfectly - but without this unnecessary extension.
If it helps when I mouseover my pointer over the “slideshow”, normally the sildeshow will expand in size to also show the ad. This is proper. With Privdog enabled however, the problem occurs as described, with the whole page going blank except for the ad only, which remains.
The problem and solution are entirely reproduceable, every time.
I opened the link posted by Dev. The link took me to Yoga pic. On the side there is Ad. If I hover the mouse on the little screenshot below Yoga pic, nothing happens but if I click on the screenshot, on the side above the AD, info is displayed about the screenshot.
I have Privdog enabled with default settings & latest CD.
I’ve attached a screenshot of what I see. When I hold the mouse over the removed advertisement nothing happens. Clicking also causes nothing to happen. Is this normal behavior for the ad to not be replaced?
Other than that everything seems normal to me. I’m using CD.
Nevermind. This is caused by an extension I have installed called Do Not Track Me. If I disable that, but leave PrivDog enabled, I get an ad from AdTrustMedia. Thus, PrivDog is working correctly. It is the other extension which is causing problems for me.
