Upcoming Historical Romance Wiki Firefox Fix

I got an e-mail this morning from a reader who couldn't access any of the links on my Upcoming Historical Romances wiki. It looked fine on my end, so I took to Twitter and voila! Sure enough, the problem seems to occurring with Firefox. In a nutshell? Because I'm too cheap to pay for the wiki service, y'all get bombarded with advertising on the side bar, along the top of the page etc. It's an ad that is causing the glitch making my wonderful wiki unusable. Here's a fix that worked for me, and hopefully it will work for you too.
Open up Firefox. Under the Tools menu, click on Add-Ons. That will bring up a separate window. Along top, choose the Get Add-Ons button. There you should find an add-on called Adblock Plus. Install that. Viola! The links on my wiki should start working again.
If that doesn't do it for you? Sigh. Hopefully Wetpaint is working on the issue, and everything seems to be peachy using Internet Explorer. Sorry for the inconvenience folks!

I had no idea that you had such a wonderful thing!!! You are officially my favorite person! (and being a lover and promoter of historical western romances you were already pretty high on my list :))
