    What program were you using to block the ad?

  • Ronnie Thomas Feb 26, 2012

    I was in Sarfi. I was on my MacBook Air. I double clicked the pad. I selected, block this ad to see what it wou do. I moved the slider, then moved it back to origional starting position. It looked like it was back with no change. I selected "Look Good". That is when all was messed up. Nothing under Groups, Apps, List. They all showed up on the right side of the page. Thank you,

    I wasn't aware the Safari had built-in ad-blocking. Are you sure you didn't install a third party plug-in like ad-block?

  • Ronnie Thomas Feb 26, 2012

    Jeffery, I don't think I installed a third party plug-in, but I could have... I thought I just had the curser on the side of the left column and on the pad pushed and held and the selection box came up on the MacBook Air. I have gone to Fox Fire browser and logged into FaceBook and all is back in order. Could it be the browser,Safari? On my iPad 2, all is in place on Facebook. I am on Cloud.. You sound very computer savvy, I am only fair at best. Thanks for trying to help. Sincerely, Ronnie Thomas

In Safari, try selecting Safari >> Preferences from the menu and then click the Extensions tab. If there is an AdBlock extension listed there, try deselecting the Enable checkbox and see if things then start appearing properly again.

If they do, then you will need to figure out how to remove entries from your AdBlocking extension.

Having problem to shut macbook

Click the Apple logo at the top left hand corner of your screen and select "Force Quit". On the small window that pops up, select the trouble app and click Force Quit. If the app does not close, hold down the power button until the screen goes black. This will not harm your computer (since it's a Mac) and you can boot it back up afterwards.

There are 2 ways to block numbers:
1. Go to Menu. Settings. Call. Call services. Call barring settings.
There you can block outgoing or incoming call groups using your provider's network settings.

2. Press menu, and then tap All friends.
In the Friends list, press and hold the friend's name you want to block.
Tap Block friend. Your friend is removed from your friends list and is added to the blocked friends list.
