Hi guys,

I'm experiencing the same issue.
Running XP Pro with Java plugin Version 1.5.0 (build 1.5.0_04-b05)
and being behind a firewall, using F-secure AV. When visiting
no "data coin icon" pointed on the page appears.
I have no idea what's the culprit. Thanks for your suggestions.

Do you have the java plugin installed? if so, what version? on what
operating system are you running?

The more information you give us the better we can help you.
