If I select "Block Web Advertising" in the Web Features preferences I am unable to use the Meijer online ads section as no images will load. Text only is displayed. All cookies are enabled. Images load OK using any other Mozilla browser (Netscape or Firefox). 

Reproducible: Always
Ad pages have urls like http://www.meijer.com/OnlineAds/AdImages/793/1/aathumb_1.jpg

So

img[src*="/adimages/"],

gets this on the branch (on the trunk, CSS matching is apparently case-sensitive, and the ad images display).

I'm tempted to WONTFIX this; Simon, any thoughts (this is one of your original rules)?

That's the point of the feature (to block web advertising) or am I missing something.
These ads are not unwanted web advertising, but reproductions of the store's weekly promotional ads displayed within a web page to be used to view the store's weekly specials and/or select items for a shopping list. 
Hmmm, I think this is a WONTFIX. We're bound to have some false positives. meijer.com isn't worth whitelisting, either.

John, in case you're not already aware of this, you can turn off "Block Web Advertising" and reload the page to get the images to appear (and then turn it on again when you're done at meijer.com).
