The link to the death certificate on Burtner-10 isn't displaying. I tried changing it, and even deleted it and rewrote it, and wasn't able to get it to display. The link is valid. What am I missing?

Thank you!

Hi Harry,

I've encountered similar problems with links not displaying on WikiTree web pages while using Adblock Plus (ABP) on Windows/Firefox. When I disable the ad-blocker and refresh the page, the links display correctly. The problem appears to be that ABP is incorrectly blocking non-ad content. In my case, one of the links being blocked pointed to a publicly sharable genealogical record at Ancestry.com: https://www.ancestry.com/sharing/16683697?h=445f05.

IMO, my disabling of ABP for a particular domain is not an adequate fix for the problem. While that does allow me to see the links, it doesn't resolve what I believe to be the root cause of the problem: ABP is incorrectly blocking non-ad content. I've reported the issue to ABP.
