PostSubject: New ads crashing my browser   Sun Jan 18, 2009 2:07 pm

Some of these new flashing ads are crashing my browser. It's really annoying, because I can't see all the messages that way. (via POSTS SINCE LAST VISIT) It's been hanging up IE on my new computer...wondering if anyone else is having any issues...especially in IE. A couple of them activate the warning/exclamation sound on my computer too. This never happened before.

Another thing I'd like to suggest...
Most forums have a category for WEBSITE QUESTIONS, PROBLEMS, or SUGGESTIONS. Is it possible to make one here too?

I don't have too many problems here at home except for a few annoying popups, but I can't seem to stay on at work. I keep getting an add-on error and IE crashes....

Yesterday I did get into the "repeated" windows popping up that I thought could be caused by one of the ads. I know that some of the "sounds" have been annoying.

I had the same problem a couple of days ago. An ad at the top of the home page kept making a DING sound, which related to the ad script.

I had to sign out and come back in as it was so annoying.

I am on Mozilla now because I E would crash daily if not hourly on my laptop that is only 5 months old. At first I thought it was because VISTA was so problematic. But even after going back to XP, I E would still crash often.

On a related topic - last August, I could not participate on this site with Mozilla. Technically I could sign on, could view it - but could not post anything at all. So I went back to I E for three months just so I could become more a part of Cruise Freeks.

The changes on this site must have made it compatible with Mozilla cuz I have none of those problems at all since going back to Mozilla this month.

Tad...this is exactly what I'm talking about. It's no just me then...it must be a site glitch here.
It totally locks up the browser making me shutdown and start from scratch.

Steve...got any ideas? Is it something in the reconstuction?

I have no ideas. I use IE at home and firefox in the office. I'm on Vista x64 at home and windows 2000 at the office. I have not had any problems in either location.

There was nothing in the reconstruction that would have cause this. All that was done was the creation and deletion of categories and fora (forums?) and the moving of messages. No ads were changed (at least by me).

I am on IE and I haven't had that problem Pete. Sorry I can't help ya.

I do have another question though.....up on top where it says "Cruise Freek Main Page" and "Advertisers Click Here"....I have always seen 2 X's. The button is gone. Is that like that for the rest of you or just me?

same for me too. I think you can still click on them, it's just that the graphics for the buttons aren't loading.

Ok, good, it's not just me. Laughing

I wonder if Steve can figure out why it does that?

I don't think those graphics were ever created. I went looking for them while I was working on the board and couldn't find them. I forgot to ask Tina about them.

We should probably just remove them then. The cruise freek main page is probably in need of updates anyway. And we can just add a new "advertiser banner"

I started a thread a long time ago about those buttons. No one can see the graphic on them...but the buttons work. I think everyone just said....live with it. Get over it Pete....get on with your life. There are more pressing things in the world you should be concerned with.


....and I said....LIKE WHAT???? Laughing

I have OPERA on my netbook. I don't like the back buttons I use so much in the forums.

Same with Apple Safari. The back button gives no choice of skipping back multiple screens. It sux. I have Firefox on the desktop...but I just like IE better. I guess I'm just more comfortable using IE...because I know what it does. The others...not so much.

It's not in my nature to just "get over things" Laughing

So I am with you Pete. They need to go. If we are trying to clean up the board, then that is the first thing that people see when they come here. Wink

Steve, can you edit that? I don't want to bother Tina.

Your wish was my command. I put the two links in the very top announcement box instead.
