When i attempt to download a mod from adf.ly it won't work and says internet explorer cannot display this page, but other downloads like direct will work. I'm just wondering if adf.ly is maybe down???
You never download a mod from adf.ly directly, usually they link to a site like mediafire or often dropbox. Likely, the problem is that you have some sort of blocker on, like peerblock, that usually prevents me from downloading from dropbox.
Google Chrome with AdSkip [for sites like adf.ly], AdBlock+ [for normal ads], disconnect me [stop facebook and twitter from stalking you!], https everywhere [no more insecure connections], and magic actions for youtube [has a feature to skip youtube ads].
