:? the previous thread for help was locked, without the full context appreciated. Hopefully we can move past that. QUESTION: Is anyone else experiencing problems surfing NR from behind a proxy server that uses aggressive content filters? Work has not blocked NR. Banner advertising is blocked however - but for the record, the imbedded adds (e.g. Intyre and MTL adds) are not blocked however, so all the paid for content comes through. (Can I get help now?) The point is, work is a LAN proxy server situation and in recent times the IT guru's have tightened up net security and allowed content and from that time on, the page content of NR has been impacted. That is, menus, borders etc always download, but the threads often don't. It takes reloading the url into fresh browser windows (sometimes multiple new windows) to get the page to load. Each new window can also go through the full login process. Work uses IE and I've observed that when the filters are off line, the large banner adds come through and NR runs fine. When the filters are running, the banner adds don't come through and the problems occur. I've put two and two together and presumed it's to do with how the larger (google?) banner adds and the filters are interacting. I haven't seen the same problem at home whether I run an adblocker or not. I might be snookered given that the content of some of the banner adds are of topics which are banned at work, e,g, dating and religion type ads. There might be nothing I can do NR might not have any choice over the content in the banner adds. Again, the imbedded adds come through fine. Is there anything I as a user can adjust on IE that might help with the situation? Anyone else come across this problem?
