Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; ru-RU; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031006

The Mozilla banner (see http://www.mozilla.org/images/mozilla-banner.gif), which
appears on all Bugzilla pages, is sometimes (depending on the system) removed by
ad-blocking software. The file name includes "banner" and so does not pass some
 anti-ad filters. Perhaps it would be possible to use another filename for the
mozilla banner?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install some anti-ad software, add ".*banner.*" to filters (if it still is
not there).
2. Open bugzilla.mozilla.org.

Actual Results:  
Enjoy the black square on the top of page instead of Mozilla banner.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla's banner should appear!

"Banner" seems to be the string too often contained in the URLs of ad-images.

This is a valid request.
-> NEW

I also think that the idea is good to change the file name.

worksforme w/ Norton Internet Security's ad blocking feature

it seems a bit silly not to use "banner", which is common in filenames.

It does not pass at least my filters. I use the old good AtGuard 3.22.
I very much doubt anyone's going to get around to fixing this, as it would
require CVS moves in the website, and updating all the pages which use it (or
writing a rewrite rule.)
