    The same GT Outpost Mountain bike I've been riding since 1996. I also have a collection of cruisers, folders, and some antiques.

    Administrators: Why do all videos show up half-screen?

    Sorry. I do not know of another way to contact the forum administrators.

    I use Firefox 23.01.1 and any time I try to view a video that is embedded in a post, half of it gets cut off by an advertisement in the right column. I have tried to close the ad window, but cannot find that option.

    This happens in all Bicycling Forums to which I am subscribed. Is this a Firefox issue?

    See? I'll bet the right half of this post runs right into an ad >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    This is what happens with videos!

    I'm not an admin.

    I run Google Chrome with adblock. There's no ad. SO there's a fix - or check to see if Firefox has an adblock extension.
    I opened Firefox to see if I could replicate the problem. I see the ad. However, it didn't block any of the post.
    If I resize the window, the ad stays a fixed size and text from your post adjusts around the ad.

    Are you running a low screen resolution, maybe?

    AdBlock Plus, a free Firefox add-on is the option you've been seeking.

    I can only ever see half-videos on my tablet. Resizing doesn't help.

    OK, Adblock Plus for Chrome did the trick. Don't know why I didn't try this sooner.

    take a screen shot and post it in the user assistance forum. One way to contact a mod is to report a post. Little black triangle under each post. I just reported the OP to see if anyone at IB can do something about it. But nothing will happen without a screen capture.

    Hi Papa Tom.

    My email is tom@bikeforums.net. Siu's is Siu Blue Wind@bikeforums.net. CbadRider is the same way. The Admins all have email that is Username(at)bikeforums(dot) can always be contacted by email, and if you'd like to speak verbally to me, send me a phone number and time available. We may need to diddle around a bit to match schecules, and that callback is limited to US and Canada and some Caribbean numbers.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    If we can at least get a link to the page with the video you're referring to, that'd help too.
