User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0
Build ID: 20120824154833

Steps to reproduce:

Went to a specific website.

Actual results:

Banner ads did not display on this website.

Expected results:

They should have displayed.  They do display on other systems running Firefox and on other systems running Firefox on this network.  They do display in other browsers on this system.  They just do not display in Firefox on my system.  There are no ad blockers in my Firefox.  I have de-installed and re-installed it.  I have deleted cookies.  I have turned off Symantec Norton AV, firewall, etc.  I have tried everything and the banners do not appear.  I have attached a Word document with examples of my system in Firefox, my system in IE, another system on our network with Firefox.  I do get banners on other websites.

2) Try with a new profile (don't import anything):

Does your issue still reproduce in these cases?

Creating a new profile and changing to that profile fixed it.  Thanks everyone for your comments.
