Hello Krookdo,

While I was attempting to use Ad block to remove the ads at the top of the new Gmail GUI, playing around I accidentally *un*clicked in Firefox>Tools>Options>Content on "Load Images Automatically" box.

Apparently, it's not possible to "disappear" or "hide" the ad bar at the top of the new Gmail interface... and it was totally frustrating to see across the board images, icons, etc., were missing at first, and I couldn't understand why (what on earth makes me investigate or "make significant changes to" my computer when I'm really supposed be going to bed and I'm WAY too tired to pay attention to what I'm doing ... must... keep... hands ... off!).

But check out if this box in Firefox is checked or not. Once I turned it back on the icons and images re-appeared.

The ads are still there, but, I guess as long as they don't start to take up half the screen before I'm allowed to view my emails, for now at least I can live with this!

I hope resolve your problem then reply me back

Thank you

The following list may help you fix or diagnose the problem. Some of these tests will help narrow the problem down if they don’t solve it so it’s important to test and answer each one. They all assume you are using the Gmail web interface logged in at https://mail.google.com/

Have you tried clearing your browser's cache and cookies, and then re-starting it? https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32050

What browser and version are you using? Have you updated your browser to the latest supported version? https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6557

Have you tried performing the task in another supported browser AND on another computer on a different network to see if it behaves the same?

Have you tried both the Standard, and Basic-html (https://mail.google.com/mail/h/ ) versions of Gmail to see if anything changes?

Have you tried disabling any labs features you are using (Settings->Advanced)? You can do this for all of them at once by using: https://mail.google.com/mail/?labs=0

Have you tried disabling any browser extensions or add-ons? Have you tried running in Safe Mode (Firefox) or using an incognito window (Chrome)?

Have you tried temporarily disabling your anti-virus scanner to see if the behavior changes? It’s critical you also try disabling any internet or e-mail related extensions/add-ons it has. Don't forget to re-enable it after the test.

Have you tried disabling any other monitoring or internet protection programs (like Net-Nanny) which could be blocking Gmail? Multiple people have reported that Net-Nanny is causing problems and disabling it fixes Gmail, so try that.
