Default Is there a bug on this site? - 01-10-2009, 03:17 AM

Since joining the Mini forum about a week ago I have posted about 7 times. One post after I summited it keep opening new windows and wouldn't stop until I rebooted. Thinking it was a fluke I didn't think anything about it until I just posted a new message and the same thing happened again. Has anyone else had this problem here?

In all my posts, I haven't seen anything like that.

What OS / browser combo are you using?


Obsidian Mini 9 > 2gb ram, 16gb ssd, bluetooth, 1.3mp webcam, us-intl kbd
Internal Mods > usb hub, 16gb flash drive, 8gb flash drive, added webcam, changed kbd

I've never seen that behavior in this forum.

I've been using Vista Ult. x64 with firefox just fine. I'll try browsing in IE7 for a while to see if it happens.

It sounds like Protected Mode (IE7)

Go to Tools > Internet Options > Security Tab
Click on Trusted sites (green check-mark)
Click on Sites button
You should see the forum's URL already in the box...
Click Add button, then Close, then OK.

Restart IE7, when you go to the forum, you should see "Protected mode: Off" in the lower right corner of your window. That should (hopefully) stop the extra windows from opening.
