Missing part of my page on a particular web site
I recently installed Adblock Plus because I had 2 web sites that were placing ads (World of Watchs and Ebags) at the bottome of my Cityville web page. After installing Adblock, the ads are gone but the portion of the page where they were was not reclaimed, i.e., I have a band of white about an inch and a half at the bottom of my page. How do I reclaim my page real estate?

That content may get added by a Firefox extension or malware, so blocking may only prevent it from getting fetched and displayed
Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
- Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.
