When trying to cash in PCH tokens, the orders are treated as ads. They are considered as ads by your system. If this cannot be treated as valid orders, then the blocking process must be removed.

Please advise your solution ASAP.

Hi, Firefox doesn't block ads, but you may be using an ad blocking add-on which you can probably disable on that site by clicking its button, or for all sites, in the Add-ons Manager (Ctrl+Shift+A) > Extensions. You will need to reload the site afterwards.

You are using a very old version of Firefox which may be causing this problem. Vista is no longer supported, but you should try to update to the Extended Support Release version. To update, open the 3-bar menu > Help (question mark at bottom right) > About Firefox. Alternatively, you can press the Alt key to bring up the main menu bar > Help > About Firefox. More - Update Firefox to the latest release.

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy: "Use Tracking Protection in Private Windows"

You can set this pref to true on the about:config page to see more Tracking Protection choices in "Options/Preferences -> Privacy".

  • privacy.trackingprotection.ui.enabled

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block (wanted) content (e.g. Adblock Plus, NoScript, Ghostery, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block (wanted) content.
