Default Empty White Box

I noticed I now have a empty white box above the quick reply.

I have adblock installed but is this intended for something? Its a bit annoying.

Yeah it's being used as a targeted ad banner (as opposed to google ads up top). It's currently showing NCIX's Black Friday Sale banner. :)

fwiw, I don't have adblock (or any other anti-ad software), and Firefox by itself seems to be making that a white box. Something about the ad is rubbing FF the wrong way, I guess.

But NCIX might be happy to know that I browsed through the sale anyway.
