I have seen these, and don't have a blocker (I'm sure there isn't one
lurking somewhere on my hard drive...), but these blanks generally occur
after I've gone from the main page to an article.
The URL of the blanks is in the format "wyciwyg://[a number]/[the URL of
the previous page incl. the http://]"... "what you cache is what you get."
I looked it up on Mozilla's FF support forum, but there appears to be no
consensus as to a solution apart from turning off an ad blocker... little
hard for me.
