Is There A Major Flaw In The New Google Video AdSense Ads?

I have not read anything about this yet.

The New Google Video AdSense Ads Do Not Seem To Show With Firefox!

For the first time in months, I have an AdSense ad running on a recent post on this blog. One of the new Google video ads to be precise. It does not show on my computers using Firefox. It only shows using Internet Explorer. Same computers, just different browsers. This site looks terrible in IE too.

Maybe you can see the video ad in Firefox.

I cannot. It shows up just fine in IE. I hope I am wrong.

*Don’t bother looking, I’ve removed the ad now.*

This would be a real screw-up for Google if I am right.

What kind of idiot would make an ad that would not be visible on a browser they promote. I would think that is something they would have made sure worked.

Here is the announcement for the AdSense video ad at Inside AdSense.

We’re excited about the launch of video units — a new way to enrich your site with quality, relevant video content in an embedded, customizable player. Simply embed a snippet of code and have relevant YouTube partner content streamed to your site. You can choose categories of video to target to your site, select content from individual YouTube partners, or have video automatically targeted to your site content. Companion and text overlay ads are relevant and non-intrusive. To further blend the YouTube player into your site, you can also customize the color scheme and layout as well as choose from three different player sizes.

Am I wrong about the AdSense video ads and Firefox?

Can you find the AdSense video ad using Firefox? Can you find it in Internet Explorer? It is in a very recent post.

Let me know what you see and think.
