Site bugs

    I dunno if these have been posted before, but here's a small list of bugs I encounter frequently:

    1. When a page is fully loaded, sometimes the side scrolling bar disappears.  I can't scroll up or down the page, not even with the mouse wheel.  Refreshing the page doesn't help.  Most often occurs on pages with threads (vote chess, forums, team matches, etc.)

     

    2. Ads that aren't visible on the page will play in the background.  I don't know if they're hiding behind other textures or ads etc.  But I can't turn them off/close them/find the source of them.  Usually occurs on the Online Chess page.

     

    3. Sometimes the site refuses to close down or navigate away from the page I'm on.  A pop up will show asking if I'm sure I want to leave the current page.  Saying yes, no, clicking on the x, refreshing, back/forward paging and ignorring it don't do anything.  I have to ctrl-alt-del the page.  Not sure when, how or why this occurs.

     

     

    I've experienced these bugs on multiple computers running various versions of Windows (Vista, XP, and 7) with a 1920x1200 resolution and updated drivers, various web browsers (explorer, chrome, firefox) and with a good internet connection.

     

    I hope this information is useful :)

    When 1. 2 and 3 happen, do you see any ads that look as if they pop out of the page at any time ? If so, do you recall what the ad was for ?

    I recall a pacman looking add popping out of the page, but it doesn't always happen when one of the above mentioned bugs occurs. 

     

    @echecs06

    Yes, I use Chrome primarily.  Though I've seen these bugs on Internet Explorer and Mozilla FireFox aswell.

    Just had 1 above happen to me. The ad that popped out (after it happened) was for free cursors. Using Internet explorer. Hope this helps

    I have had my scrolling bar dissappear on the forums too recently. Refreshing has fixed it the few times it happened for me. I am using chrome.
