AdBlock interferes with the XmlHTTPRequest object and is known to sometimes break the way jQuery functions especially if the url triggers some sort of url filter.

You have a few options to resolve the solution:

  • suggest that users turn off AdBlock if the class called global_message exists.
  • Change the url posting or geting from.

Easily Take Screenshot of Page in Firefox

Every web developer or computer programmer spends time taking pictures of websites for their portfolio. Taking screenshots of pages that have a scrollbar has always been really difficult for a developer and often requiring sometime stitching images together in Photoshop.

I found a plugin for firefox called Screengrab! that actually can take screenshots of the site and even include flash or java applets, so that taking pictures of sites for your portfolio is now a lot easier.
