    browser issues?

    using firefox browser on an XT pro computer. Sometimes when I look at a thread and then hit the back arrow at the top of the page.. the site just loops on that thread.
    I then have to go to the 17/9 new posts and start over in the forum list. Is it me? my browser? anyone else having these issues?

    Re: browser issues?

    I feel the issue you are referring to may have something to do with CTN pages being redirected to advertisement servers.The problem stems from your browser being basically hi-jacked and all CTN pages being overlayed with personal profile advertisements.
    I've spoke about the CTN web page browser issue in the past an in detail on previous threads. Some people like the personalised advertisements; I believe most people prefer to opt out.

    stars appear in all treats i have replied


    If the initial hi-jack is a bad hack job, it may have started from a rouge web site, or from an email attachment? You may have seen an unwanted desktop short-cut appear on your computer?
    Check the unwanted desktop icon didn't copy an automatic startup function into the users\..\startup directory for each boot-up. You may have seen a popup or hidden browser page appear behind your current active browser page. Some things to watch for if your browser has been hi-jacked.

    No big surprises, its par for the course when you surf the internet a lot.

    It was probably a link from "Iowatech", he is always warning us about using his 'links' at your own risk.
