    Yes it is frustrating. There are alternatives in the interim while I see what, if anything, can be done. You can use a browser like IE 9 and Firefox 20.0.1 where it is not an issue. Or you can subscribe and have no ads. Or use the ad blocker Mosaic suggested.

    Thumbs up Possible solution

    Hello Everyone....

    It does seem that the wide ad on the top is the cause of the problem, but I found, quite by accident, that if you reduce the size of the entire browser dialogue box the problem corrects itself.
    I don't think that I have explained this very well. Okay, a different approach. Click on the window button for your browser between the button that looks like a dash and the one that is an "X" and it should correct the problem.

    I'm having forum issues too. Subscribed and still getting ads. Also having issues with the first post on every page being gone, in a narrow columns of about 13 characters, or one character wide. I'm using chrome on the laptop (Windows) and android on the phone. I know you all are aware of the issues just wanted to let you know what things look like on my end. I'll sit tight until things are cleared up. Just let me know if a screen shot would be use.

    Which browser? I tried it in Chrome and the first post disappeared completely.

    Adblocker seems to have done the trick for me.

    But as Zumarrad said, that sucks for the advertisers...

    Has anyone found a browser that does not have the problem? I'm on Firefox and the entire first post of each page is just a huge empty box.

    Dunyah, I use FF 20.0.1 with firefox ad blocker add-on, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...don/ad-killer/ & don't have any problems. The last post on a page is blank on the right side where an ad would be, but the post itself even though to the left is not squished.

    Post Worked with Windows Internet Explorer

    Hi....

    It works on Windows Internet Explorer but on a PC running under Windows XP Professional. I tried Chrome under the same OS but, yes, it didn't work.

    Okay, I just tried Chrome, Firefox and Windows Internet Explorer on my ASUS Notebook which runs under Windows 7 Home Premium. Of these only Windows Internet Explorer worked without a hitch.

    Ælfstangard says, "It is not unusual for website developers to optimise their sites for one type of browser in disregard for others who do not use the same browser. They don't seem to realize the trouble it causes for people using different browsers or they just don't care." He should know because computer troubleshooting is part of his job.

    Hope this helps,

    Ælfscine

    Hi Salome...

    I tried Firefox 20.0.1 and it didn't solve my problem. Are you running some additional add-in that we might not be aware of?

    I'm subscribed and getting the same amount of ads I was before. Zappos in a top banner and a credit union ad in a block on the last post in this thread. Is that normal? Also having weird columns of text in the top posts.
