Default Answered: Help! Firefox thinks WI is an ad!

HELP! My computer (Firefox) thinks the WebkinzInsider pictures and backgrounds are advertisements! I have adblockplus on Firefox, so it usually works fine. But recently It has made everything white.. I'll post pictures later. If I Disable Adblock Plus, it will show the ads! What should I do?

Hey everyone!

Good news! I found out that Webkinzinsider WAS blocked! I just couldn't find out where... hehe. But I figured it out. Thanks for your suggestions, everyone!

you were just hit by a malware ad and you should do a hard drive clean up clear all your browsers histories and other files then do a virus scan of your whole computer and check for rootkits too. handle this now before it attacks anything important- on occasion the ads try to sneak in a Trojan horse- you will get hit by that next if your not careful. you have a weak spot in your Anti spy protection - make sure you always use pop up blocker for this site especially ! I have had lots of experience with the Trojan horses on this site & my protection carrier provided me with a fix for it

WOW! Even on a Macbook?!

Oh. Also, the same thing happened to me on WW, so I clicked Tools and clicked on Page info, and I found out that Webkinz World was blocked, so I unblocked it.
Do you think this is the same thing? But I un-blocked everything...

Clear your cache. This isn't an add or anything involved with popup blockers. It is because the CSS STYLESHEET (the thing that makes WI look all pretty) hasn't loaded. Refresh the page, clear your cache, and try it in another browser.

Default Re: Help! Firefox thinks WI is an ad!

OMG NO NO-that is what the ad's program wants you to do !-

-Do not UN block this site from pop-ups ever ever ! It is an underlieing virus that is an identity stealing virus- pass codes names addresses and mail info etc.

my daughter did it & ruined my mom - her G-ma's computer & as I watched her do it - and saw the result ....
the result= had to buy a new computer for G-ma & After a grand real money the virus protection company has fixed the new one so the new one won't have the same problem.

what's the bottom line is -be safe not sorry- & this site will not replace your computer.

Default Re: Help! Firefox thinks WI is an ad!

Ok, I blocked everything. Well, I mean- I didn't take off adblock plus, I just clicked allow, for everything like allow pictures etc. But I blocked those as well.
but I'm still wondering if this is the same thing.. because I found that someone had blocked WW and when I unblocked it (meaning, allowing pictures, popups, etc. ) everything worked fine.
Also, WI on Safari works great! hmm..

not just cache, all the browsers history,temp,-check all the boxes to clear. then close the browser -diconnect from on line- then under start menu you must go to control panel- choose the clean hard drive option- check all boxes and click ok then go to restart computer- and when you go to your browser is up again pull up tools/ internet options and fix the delete history section to just delete history. then close browser again then reopen and log onto home page first then make sure pop up blocker is on for all sites except www.webkinz.com and that's it. then try to go to WW an do the normal pick country etc then come to WI but do not unblock popups for WI ever

that's the tricky thing when you "allow" it allows everything and overrides your protection because you "allow" it - see what I mean ? ok If your a kid do not mess with this stuff but if your a grown up then you know some of this stuff already.

under your 'Internet options' under the internet tab & security tab they allow specific things like pictures/video etc to be set- you just need to select 'enable active content' (for all media choices)

yes, some sites that have a music player may have to be allowed to open but the yellow bar at the top will open and ask for permission-

WW always should be allowed or WW- it won't work.

Default Re: Help! Firefox thinks WI is an ad!

I just installed adblock plus on firefox to see if I'd see what you're seeing. The page looks fine to me. No ads, and everything else is loading correctly.

If re-starting your computer doesn't work, I would suggest reinstalling the latest version of Firefox, the latest version of Adblock plus, and then re-adding the filter subscription.

I wouldn't worry to much about a virus. It's possible, but you're on a mac so the chances are extremely slim.

Alternatively, you could try using Safari or Camino and see how that works for you.
