always opens correctly, but when I try to open one of the adds
into a new window or drag an add into an open window I'll get
an error message like this one: The parameter is incorrect.

but will have an error message at the bottom of the page:

17:37:10 GMT Content-Type: text/html Content-Length: 87 The parameter is

The real problem for me is that this error won't let me respond to an
when I find something of interest. 

Also, be aware that the errors didn't happen at once. According 
to the Webmaster it takes a while for the browser to be affected. 
For him it was a week. For me it was about 11 days.
