    Problem with a webpage


    Hello, I have a problem with a webpage called DealExtreme (dx.com) when I open up the page it isn't displayed correctly aswell in Chrome and IE. It is not the site or the providers problem because when I boot my computer into Ubuntu it does work and it also shows correctly on my Phone. Can someone help me out please

    This dx.com page seems to be working for me. Maybe try using a different DNS server.

    As a guess, is it something to do with any ad-blocking software you have installed? For example, the ad blocking software maybe seeing dx.com trying to load content/scripts from dxcdn.com (img.dxcdn.com to be precise) and is blocking that domain thinking it's serving ads.

    I've come across this before when people are using automatic blocking and visit websites that use something such as jquerys hosted on other domains like googleapis.com, jquery.com, aspnetcdn.com, etc. Or, when companies for some strange reason decide to use two domains for their content. Ebay.com for example load some content from an ebaystatic.com domain. Wordpress.com load content from a wp.com domain. Huffingtonpost.com load content from a huffpost.com domain. Etc. And in your case, dx.com loading content from dxcdn.com.

    If you are using ad blocking software, does it allow you to temporarily turn if off so you can test to see if that's what's preventing the page from loading correctly? If it is the ad blocking software, does it allow you to add domains to whitelists?

    I can replicate this using IE and Tracking Protection. In the first screenshot I've allowed Huffingtonpost.com to load content from huffpost.com. In the second screenshot, I've blocked it from loading content from huffpost.com and as you can see it makes a dramatic difference. In the second screenshot I also have F12 developer tools open (set on console), where you can see it blocking content from huffpost.com.

    Yep, I tried disabling AdBlock Chrome but that didn't help, As I said before the same thing also happens in IE, And I did everything what I could in IE, Reset it, Deleting cookies etc. I even did ipconfig /flushdns in CMD, Also didn't work , And btw Huffingtonpost.com loads OK for me. I hope that someone can still help me out
