There seems to be no specific forum for this issue, but it happens inside of Chrome, so I put it here. In another thread, I asked for help with what I FIRST thought was AdBlockPlus hanging me up... BUT it turned out that there was an issue in my router that restored previous behaviors... i.e. not ABP's fault. HOWEVER, during the time I had a workaround (disable ABP) I saw I was getting ads in gmail, something I never ever saw. Once I re-enabled ABP, the ads stopped happening... until the last day or so.
So the question is, does ABP have any effect on e-mail ads in Chrome/gmail? If it does, this is an issue, if not I'd have to look at gmail to find out why this is happening... like I said, my experience DID convince me that ABP also stopped ads in gmail.
