How do I enable JavaScript in my browser?

Please keep in mind that upgrading your browser or installing new security software or security patches may affect your JavaScript settings. It is a good idea to double-check that JavaScript is still enabled if you notice problems displaying PPCC pages. Additionally, if your JavaScript setting is set to 'Prompt', you may encounter a warning about downloading potentially dangerous scripts from a website that uses JavaScript.

If you are still experiencing problems viewing the ads after ensuring that JavaScript is enabled in your browser, please check if you have any personal firewall or security software installed.

In order to use certain features of the PPCC website, you will need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser. To do so, please follow the instructions below:
