    After two hours, I solved it at last. First, I placed the banner in a one-cell table which is center aligned and 468x60 so I was sure this would work. But after uploading, Firefaux would give me some $#!t that looks like this:


    I didn't remove this one-cell table because I was sure it was my only hope. I kept on changing other things to find the culprit. At the end I found that the problem was caused by two <br>s I had placed before and after the banner for some space. When I changed them to <p></p>, it worked perfectly. Apparently, Firefaux has some problems with <br>. I had no idea this would solve the problem and the only reason I tried it was desperation. So I was like

    I'm not going to negotiate it with anyone; my final verdict: Firefaux my ass, at least IE understands what <br> is supposed to do

    Thanks for the confirmation. I guess everything's fixed now. I centered the banner by enclosing it in a cell. And the layout was fixed by simply replacing the <br> with <p></p>.

    I was surprised because you suggested that as a solution for the problem.

    I couldn't care less about the ads. Honestly, I was planning to remove the banner if the Firefaux problem wasn't going to be sloved. The only reason I implemented ads in the first place, is to get back what I'm paying for host. Of course there is some decent profit but it's nothing considering the time and effort I spend working on my site.
