In FireFox I was getting a weird addition on an image link:
<!– Removed by HIPS FW
And then a whole lot more dashes, well it turns out that my CA Internet Security Suite thought there was a “web bug” and edited the HTML before displaying! How nice, I’m not a fan of the CA Suite it’s worse than Norton. Anyway, to get rid of this:
- Open up the Personal Firewall section.
- Click the Privacy Icon.
- Under Cookie Control click the advanced button. This will open a new sub-window with multiple tabs.
- On the first tab uncheck “disable web bugs” in the third party section.
- Now refresh your web page and it should be back to normal!
If you’re ready to dump CA here are a few alternatives available at amazon, read the reveiws before you buy and check out some of the free options like ZoneAlarm.
