    If there's a problem with Stratics?

    That new Lord of the Rings Online ad overwrites the Search and Quick Links drop-downs when I use Firefox.

    Who should I talk to?

    I use Firefox and the add does drop down a ways, but when I remove the cursor from the add it pops back up. Just have to be a bit careful with the mouse is all.

    Yep...far as I can see...it expands upon mouseover, then shrinks when you move off it?

    Yup. I did have it get stuck once in the expanded position, but I moused over it and off again and it collapsed.

    update firefox. you're out of date. mine works fine.

    or, you are moving toward the buttons at a downward motion and your mouse is too slow. the ad expands when you roll-over. so, mover around it, or make sure your mouse stays under it as much as you can...

    Original poster here...
    My problem had nothing to do with the expansion of the banner.
    My problem was when I clicked "Search" or "Quick Links", the drop-down was behind the banner ad.
    And today the drop-downs work properly.
    Did someone fix the banner's always-on-top setting?

    Stratics should of went with something like Community Server or any other asp.net cms type of system. Php is so archaic.

    Ad banners are one thing, but ads in threads I think is a bit overkill. It ranks right there with adsense ads.
