    Problem [researching]Web Browser shrinks when viewing this website... on 3 different comps...

    I am totally mind boggled. As of today, everytime I load this website, on 3 different rigs, when I change to a new page within this website my browser shrinks into like a 2x4
    window which goes to the top left of my screen. Am I the only one with this issue. Just started happening out of the blue today. I am running netscape 7.1 by the way. I have been viewing this site for almost a year with this browser and have had no issues. Any ideas?

    No, it just started happening to me as well, really annoying. I thought I changed some setting without realizing it.

    I think it's coming from one of the ad sites. Turning on the adblocker extension in Firefox stopped it.
    His: Windows 7 64-bit on MSI X58 Pro-E, i7 950, Radeon 4870 1G, 300G Velociraptor + 2250G other SATA, 12G RAM; Windoze Home Server on MSI K9N SLI Platinum, A64 X2 6000, nVidia 7900, 2TB SATA storage

    Hers: Vista Home 64-bit on Toshiba Core-2 Duo Laptop

    I turned on popup blocker within netscape but it was a no go. You are right about firefox not being affected by it but I dont understand why all the sudden netscape is. It shrinks down to the corsair ad in the top left of the screen. I wonder if Corsair is behind this or PCPer has made some changes.

    i havent experienced this at all no matter the browser and ive been browsing this site and forums off and on all evening.

    we will, however, look into it. i dont think it is a change that has been made here...but could be the result of an ad. not certain tho.
    hmm...

    I haven't seen this yet either. If this happens to you again, could you please maximize your window, and save a screen shot of the ads on the screen?

    Thanks.

    Here it is on my wifes computer. I open my home page (storage forum) and it is normal, when I click a bookmarked page on the forums it opens the page then instantly will tranform to this size.

    Edit: I take that back, it seems to do the switch after the page is fully loaded. It is doing it when I open my Home page.

    Yes. That is exactly what is happening on my computers as well. Also.. when using Explorer... spybot pops up on this site saying
    "Spybot-S&D has blocked the download of "Avenue A, Inc."

    Also... each time is says "download of" its something different each time.
