I've allowed ads on in my adblocker, but I still see the "feed our squirrel" banner

Are you seeing ads on the page along with the "please allow ads" yellow banner?  If so, please take a screenshot and send in a "Tech question" Farkback.  You can upload the screenshot on the Farkback form.

If you're not seeing ads (in particular, the top ad next to the Fark logo), it's possible you disabled Adblock for us but have another add-on/extension that's causing problems.  You can try temporarily disabling all your add-ons except your adblocker and restart your browser and see if you get ads (and not the 'squirrel banner') at that point.

Please make sure you're using the current version of your extensions.
