SO Appearance in chrome

But on IE it appears fine:

  • @hims056 Yes I'm using AdBlock and disabling it helped thanks. But what's weird is that I've been using AdBlock all along and everything was appearing fine. Do you perhaps know why? Has there been an update to AdBlock or something?

  • AdBlockPlus seems to be the issue. Enabling AdBlock alone works fine.

I added these filters to my AdBlock Plus extention so that it may not block ads from the StackExchange related sites. Taken from Here


Now everything works fine with my extentions enabled.
