Hey guys!

Pretty sure I had an account here but it's gone for some reason... Maybe inactivity?

Anyway, I have a weird problem which I haven't found an answer to myself...
On my Mac, in Safari Firefox and Chrome, google Ads don't show... At first I thought it was a network problem, but when I tested it side to side with my PC laptop, same connection (LAN), it appears that my PC laptop does show the ads while my Mac won't...

The weird thing is, yesterday in school (on their network) the ads did show on my Mac while using Safari...

Anyone have a clue what this might be? The usual "ad blocker is on" won't help since it's off, javascript is enabled in safari as well... Are there any settings in safari that I might be overlooking? But then again, why don't the ads show up in Firefox or Chrome either?

Looking forward to any ideas!

Thx, Cran.


EDIT: In case it matters, my iPhone is showing them perfectly fine as well...

Consider yourself lucky! I keep an /etc/hosts file updated with 127.0.0.1 entries for ad servers just to AVOID ads.

I know I probably shouldn't complain, but as I'm in the google Adsense program I'd love to see what ads are showing on my page

Hmm... very odd indeed. You might try creating a throw away user on your system and observing if that user has similar or different results. That might indicate a user specific setting.

Great idea, why didn't I think of that! I'll try it out later and post the results, thanks!
