    Angry firefox screws up my site too

    This is great! Now I can't tell whether it's my fault or a bug in the damn browser

    Take a look at this page:
    http://www.techjunkeez.com/articles.htm

    There's a typical banner ad right below the heading "Latest Articles". It's supposed to be centered. It looks fine in IE and Opera but appears left aligned in 'fox.

    Can someone take a look at the code (sorry it's all over the place) and tell me whether it's my fault or Firefox's?

    If you get lost in the code, look for focusIN code.

    Thanks, Rev! What version are you using? The latest one?

    I'm using 1.0.6 and this is what I get:


    Tried clearing cache and reinstallation; nothing worked

    So it's not the browser, but it isn't the site either! WTF?

    edit: Wait! I think I figured it out! Firefox hates me That's the only explanation I can think of. No wonder everytime I try it, something goes wrong.

    the problem may be an extension you are using if you have them
    uninstall them to see if it helps.

    what if it is spyware that replaced your ad wit their own and thats why its not centered for you......

    They can do that?! But I don't believe there's any spyware on my system (very unlikely).

    i refreshed your page a few times and i found a text ad similar to the one in your pic with the same probleem

    the ad says


    Unclaimed Money - Free Trial Search
    Over 3 Billion in unclaimed money is sitting unclaimed in our database. How much of it belongs to you? Find out a... Yes Advertise Here

    there are spyware that can replace your site ads with tailored ones made from your surfing habits. These ads are usually hosted on other infected machines lol

    But if you're seeing it too, it can't be spyware, right?

    So it's the text ads on Firefox because they're OK on Avant and Opera.

    Here's the code:

    Code:
    <!--- start of focusIN code --->
    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
       var now = new Date();
       var uaid = now.getTime() % Math.floor(8640000 - Math.random()*1000);
       document.write('<scr'+'ipt src="http://focusin.ads.targetnet.com//ad/id=techjunkeez&opt=hjj&rw=468&rh=60&cv=220&uid=' + uaid + '" ></scr'+'ipt>');
    //-->
    </script>
    <noscript>
       <iframe allowTransparency="true" src="http://focusin.ads.targetnet.com//ad...0&cv=220&uid=1" width=468 height=60 frameborder=0 marginheight=0 marginwidth=0 scrolling="no" align="center">
       <a href="http://focusin.ads.targetnet.com//ad...0&cv=220&uid=1" target="_top"><img src="http://focusin.ads.targetnet.com//ad...0&cv=220&uid=1" alt="Click here to visit our sponsor" width=468 height=60 border=0 ></a>
       </iframe></noscript>
    <!--- end of focusIN code --->
    Does anyone see code that violates web standards? If not, I'll contact the ad company and see what they say.

    Use the ad-block extention. Blow away the ad, and the page looks even better.

    Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig
