Ad blocker message

Your ad blocker message seems a little over-zealous, as I'm seeing it even though I haven't got an ad blocker installed. I do have flash configured as click to play, which is probably what is causing it. I'm using Firefox 40 on a Mac if that makes a difference.
I'm getting this too. I've disabled ad blocker plus on Media.info and I'm still getting it! Hence, I cannot log in with Facebook on what is my new PC. How do I fix this, please?
The ad blocker script doesn't stop you logging in through Facebook.
If both of you could let me know what browser you are using, and tell me if the adblock text still appears in incognito/private mode, I'd appreciate it.
Using Chrome I have disabled it on this site as well and I still get the message
Hi, Clive. I use Chrome too (on OSX, ChromeOS and Android). Could you let me know if it still happens in incognito mode? If not, it's an extension that's causing it, and it would be nice to know which.
As an aside - the note currently appears if the height of the MPU on the page - the ad on the right-hand column (on desktop) - is less than 1px high. That means nothing has loaded into the MPU, and therefore there isn't an ad displaying on the page - hence why the notice then appears.
This is why I'm interested what extensions folks are running that have interfered with the ads loading, since it's how this site pays for itself!
James ad's are visible when in incognito.
When I revisited today & logged back in, not incognito, AdBlock had restarted so I disabled it again but I'm still getting the message
A notice, James: when one step zoomed (110%, eg), your right-hand column makes it to the bottom (the page sort of fits to width).
My ads, for one, look like wide stripes about an inch or more high and kinda 100% wide.
And I do have a blocker, but it doesn't do automatic - I pick stuff to hide myself, not too often.
