Hi, all :)

Lately, I've been having a problem with some links: they become unclickable when zooming in(Ctrl + Mouse Wheel), but when doing some mild zooming out, it becomes clickable again.

Here are some screenshots I've taken, to make my problem clearer:

I would really appreciate if anyone could offer any solution to this. Thanks.

I think you could use a style rule like the following to remove the left and right side ads, either in userContent.css or using the Stylish extension:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);
@-moz-document domain("one.co.il") {
  #adTower600, #divTopRightAds {display:none !important;}
}

I'm having trouble testing this because on my regular profile the ads are suppressed in some other manner, and in a new profile I didn't have Stylish... I'll try to confirm.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window or otherwise make changes.

I think I've discovered what causes the problem. This site has ads on the sides, so when zooming in, Adblock blocks the ads, and since they are "over" the page, the entire area becomes unclickable. When, zooming out a little, the ads are on the white borders and don't interfere with the page itself. I've checked it by disabling Adblock, of course, and noticing the ads on the side. Example of the ads: http://i.imgbox.com/adiLzO19.png

Is there any way around it, then?

I don't use AdBlock Plus, so this is just a guess. If the extension removes the ads but leaves a container element, you could try this extension. It adds "Remove this object" to the right-click menu.

Afterwards, it changes to "Undo last remove" if you discover that you removed the wrong thing.

It works, but each time I enter the page, I have to do the removing all over again. Is there a way to make the removed objects stay removed permanently?

It still comes back when I reenter the website, even after using RIP :\

What is the URL of the page?

Thank you, jscher2000! Editing userContent.css according to your instructions worked :)

Btw, any explanation on the terms used in the script would be really appreciated.

The style rule targets the specific html elements <div id="adTower600"> <div id="divTopRightAds"> -- in a style rule, you use a # sign before the id to indicate that it is an id -- and prevents them from displaying by setting display:none. You can read more about CSS rules here: https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/CSS.

Again, thank you.
