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.



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