Can't post image with "_AD"

I tried to upload to a case an image called "ML_vs_AD_repeatability.png", but it didn't show up in my post. After several failed attempts, I tried changing the filename, and it uploaded just fine. Further experimentation revealed that Fogbugz wouldn't display any image with "_AD" in the filename. Weird.

FogBugz Version 6.0.23 (DB 611)

Boy, that's really weird.  Two of us here just spent a few minutes attaching files with names including _AD, including a few with the exact same name as yours (ML_vs_AD_repeatability.png) and FogBugz had no problem with any of them.

Did you get an error message?  Or did it look like attachment worked, but it just failed to display?

Can you check in your FogBugz database in the Attachment table and see if the file made it in there?

Ok. Our all-knowing admin just figured this out. I don't think there is anything you could have done about this one.

It turns out that I have an ad-blocking firefox plug-in installed which apparently filters out any pictures with *_ad* in the name!

Hey, it's a good adblock rule though!  Thanks for letting us know you figured it out. :)
