Default Unable to See Ads

I don't know if this is a hyperdrive setting I cannot find or some reject of rooted phones or what but whenever I am in any browser (stock, mozilla,. Puffin, dolphin) if I click on one of the ads at the top of a search list (bing, google, doesn't matter which search engine) I cannot connect to the ad. I get the message below. It's like some sort of ad blocker is engaged but I don't know where or how to shut it off. Please help if you can. Thanks!

I ended up running an app called adblock unblocker and it seems to do the trick.

I tweeted vzw asking about the new lte band coverage in my area. they tweeted back a link with the map. i couldn't open it because it is considered an ad. I did want to open it. When I specifically try to open a link I don't want it to be blocked. Blocking. pushed ads is great. Ads within apps I ignore anyway. No need to block an ad I want to open.
