Therefore, as a website publisher, it’s still necessary to make sure your ads serve right on Firefox. In case you encounter a problematic ad, here’s the step-by-step guide in reporting them:

1) Take a screenshot of the ad.

  • You can use the ‘Print Screen’ function on your keyboard or the Snipping Tool for Windows, then open your favorite image editor, for example, ‘Paint’.
  • Save the image in your local folder.
  • You can also directly paste and upload the image on http://snag.gy/ or http://imgur.com/ so it gives you a live link of the screenshot image

 Example of a screenshot image of a faulty ad:

2) Next, copy the FULL code of the ad.

  • Using your mouse/cursor, right-click on the ad and select ‘Inspect Element with Firebug’
  • To locate the ad code, hover on the ad and the Firebug tool will show a highlighted section where the code is found, see the example:

4) Specify the page the ad was spotted on.

  • List as many pages where the ad appeared, for example:
  • monetizemore.com
  • monetizemore.com/blog

 5) Note down the ‘Destination URL’ the ad would be directed to.

  • To do this, right-click on the ad and choose: ‘Copy Link Location’

 For example:
