Wtf?

OK... this is weird. Started doing this tonight. Doesn't do this in Explorer, just FireFox. Does it on all the threads (well, all the ones I read, anyway). Anyone else?

I use Firefox and it doesn't happen to me. That's very odd.

Dammit - I fixed it last night and now it's doing it again.

Works in IE or in an IE tab in FF. Works if I'm not logged in. But when I log in....

I've even uploaded the newest version of FF, cleared cookies and everything. What the heck is going on??

Hmm... I get that in Safari a lot... thought it was just ads being blocked or something. Didn't really think much about it.

I know that it acts the same on a few other forums I frequent, maybe it's just some sort of weirdness in the vBulletin coding that certain browser setups have trouble with?

AOL??? Good God, no!

I did my trial period in something like 1994 and never went back.

if you're comfortable with profile management, you can try this too:

but not if you don't know what you're doing.
