Pop ups not working on Home Page

Postby unclegar » Sat Mar 20, 2010 9:03 pm

I'm not sure if this is the same issue as the "flyout" thread. For the past week? or so I am not getting the popups when mousing over the thread titles. I do have my settings set to allow popups. At first I thought it might have something to do with my resizing the font (I usually select ctrl + a couple of times to make it easier to read), but I don't think that is the situation. I have found that if I select display settings and then save, it will start working. I use Google Chrome.

I have done nothing with my computer and the pop ups just started working again.

I haven't changed anything since I fixed the last problem with popups, but it's possible there's still something I've missed. The problem usually happens when a forum post has some extra "tag" characters in it that mess up the script processing on the home page. Once someone posts another reply in that specific thread, the problem will go away because the offending thread is no longer displayed on the home page.

I'll keep looking...

Does seem to be related to my resizing the font with cntl +
Today it is showing pop-ups when moused over but if I resize, then it does not. If I select a thread then go back to the homepage it is working even though it has been resized. Not sure what is going on. Not a big deal, just kind of strange. I also use Vista if that might be a contributor.

I just did a Cntl + test and I could NOT get the flyouts to fail. However, I'll use Cntl +/- several times a week, so if it is a cause, it could explain my intermittent failure. Mystery.
