Heya,

This is weird, but if I navigate to a forum page (doesn't seem to matter which page), and then quickly scroll down before the last add on the page loads, the add jumps out of the box and overlays itself on top of the breadcrumbs and menu (where it shows the patch the thread and lists User CP, FAQ, etc). Are other people seeing this? I haven't noticed it before today.

I can easily repro it, so it's not a one time glitch or anything.
My browser is IE 8.0.7600.16385 on Win7 Ultimate.

It seems to be happening on every page, even if I don't scroll down.

Yep. Pretty damn annoying. The google ad has prevented any navigation on this site that requires the new posts option.

Guys, if you PM me I'm more likely to actually see these problems. Celina, are you on IE, too? So far it's been all IE folks with problems, and I'm suspecting strongly it's got to do with one or more of the flash ads running in the Google iframe.

Hee! The thing about computers is that if you're seeing it, chances are pretty good someone else is seeing it, too. I'm doing some tinkering in the header -- did that, by any chance, fix the issue for you guys?

All fixed for me--interestingly enough, though, I'm on firefox. since the DH is getting all this expensive edumacation, IE has been banned as unworthy in this Linux-suffering household.

Thanks!
