Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This could just be me misunderstanding the way marketing works, but I have seen a few adds today that just look weird. One of them was just title text and no background or border etc. Another example is included below.

I am using Firefox 15.0.1 on Windows.

Is this an issue or just me?

enter image description here

UPDATE: Just looking at Firebug and I spotted this.

For #launched-ad in the style tab

background: url("/content/Img/launched-ads/security.png") no-repeat scroll center bottom transparent; 

I am getting the message

Failed to load the given URL

UPDATE 2: The other ad that I came across earlier appears to have the same problem with this background image

url("/content/Img/launched-ads/photo.png") no-repeat scroll center bottom transparent

I have still got the tab open with the screen above if there is any info that is needed to help with debugging. Will close it in 1 hour. – xiaohouzi79 Sep 24 '12 at 5:15

This was a temporary issue when our CDN went down. Everything should be working now.
