Verge broken formatting on several browsers and resolutions

I guess nobody else is having a problem with this, but I wanted to show you what I've been seeing for quite some time.

These sample screen captures are from the following system:
Win 7 x64 Pro

1920x1080 23" display

Chrome Version: 30.0.1599.69 m
Firefox Version: 23.0

->Both browsers have Adblock Plus installed.

In both browsers, the top banner is broken, with a transparent background behind US/World Forums and those two menu items are below the main bar. As well, several of the articles have the "Highlight" phrases hidden behind other objects.

Verge_butchered_formatting-firefox_medium

Anyway, thought you would want to know. Is this all caused by using Adblock?
