Cannot view Frys Ads in San Jose Mercury News web site.
No picture, cannot go to particular ads page.
On this same machine, Firefox, Chrome, and IE do not have this issue.
As i remember, seamonkey 1.8x was ok. I am not sure if some plug-ins are missing. I reinstalled flash and shockwave with no improvement.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to http://www.mercurynews.com/
2.scroll down. click "Fry's" in the "Shopping" box on the lower right hand side.

Actual Results:  
only a list of dates are shown. no thumbnail of ads pages. cannot click to show ad page. no warning of "missing plug-in" , etc.

Expected Results:  
please do the same using firefox and you will see.

at least prompt for a missing plug-in.
Do you have adblock installed and do you tried to disable it on that site ?

Tools->Image Manager->Manage Image Permissions.
Check that you didn't accidentally block images from this site.
Adblock Plus does indeed block this ad as Comment 1 theorized. Unblocking the page shows the ad.

OP has not responded back in 3 months.

Recommend -RESOLVED- but can be reopened if this issue resurfaces and it turns out not to be a result of ABP.
