I'm not sure if this is the same issue, but I am getting some sort of info balloon in Comodo as well. It doesn't seem to really be getting in the way of anything, though, and I'm not having the same problem when I hover over user names. Do you have another browser you could try in the meantime to see if that's the problem?
can you screen shot it? Does it look like this?
I do get those, but they're much smaller, and I hardly even notice them.
Ah..tooltips. ...Very annoying, so I just turned them off, and never see them now. Just change the value in Firefox config "browser.chrome.toolbar_tips" to "false"
Say NO to Ads on streams & Stop the Virus/Malware Alerts.
Just found where I could turn them off in Opera settings. Done some research, it seems that this is a Chrome problem, and there is no way to disable. Haven't read everything so can't be sure, but the page I read said it's possible in IE, FF and Opera. Not sure about Safari..
Just another reason to stick with FF, or make the upgrade to Opera.
or, you could check out Iron that DMW is always on about?
Edit: just opened FF, and notice Google homepage advertising that you should 'upgrade to a modern browser', clicking on the link says 'you are using FF 11, upgrade to Chrome now'
Then they try and pretend they are fair, by having a link below about 'upgrade to another modern browser', which takes you to a page offering the 5 best known browsers.. including FF. bit of a dirty trick.. I love Opera but I was only joking about the above, to my mind Chrome, FF and Opera all have their advantages, not too sure about Safari but I don't really trust Apple anyway, and everyone knows how shite IE is.
DMW - does Iron have this prob as well? Seriously pishing me off.
PROUD TO BE DIRTY LEEDS SCUM!
Thought I'd better mention it, three times in the last two days when I've opened up the forum page, I've been redirected to a sign up page for brazzers.com. When the page shows up, I go back one page and it returns to the forum page but when I check my browsing history, there is no sign of brazzers.com in there at all.
Anyone else experiencing these problems?
hmm.. have to wonder if that's an issue at your end? Possible it's here but I'd be surprised, I've had nothing like that either here or at work.. have you virus scanned much lately?
What I can't work out though, it only happened to me when I tried to get onto this site. If it was an issue my end, wouldn't it happen on others too?
Also, I've just finished an anti virus scan and it has found nothing. I'm about to run malware bytes now and spybot there after and I'll let you know if there were any issues my end.
OK, after running my anti virus, malware bytes and spybot, everything returned a clear system. I thought it would as I only ran all three software products about ten days ago.
I will let you know if anything strange happens again when I try to use the site in the near future, thanks for all the info.
Okay keep us informed, can't find/see anything strange on the forum so it's a bit unclear where it came from
