    Looks like the culprit is narrowed down... Seems to be largely the ad as shown in poofyyoda's post. Now to hope my account manager and other ad contacts are working on Friday night like I

Move out of the way of one and you invariably hit another - truly hideous. Makes copying a line from the article an absolute nightmare, too. This one is so bad that I actually stopped visiting some sites because of it (pre adblock).

        No worries, I've already been developing safeguards for if/when I get tired of AdBlock usage, I flip the switch and the test result graphs begin being served through Adobe Flash -- and for those without Flash -- through JavaScript and SVG... And being hosted off my primary ad providers network.

            Wow. I disable adblock+ to see what is going on. And I am greeted with two flash video ads, and large google ad image at top.

            And you wonder why people block ads!?!?

            And why when I disable adblock+ do I see firefox connecting to about a dozen different servers? Sounds like a good/easy way to get malware.

            I trust phoronix.com
            I do not trust ad servers.
            Come up with a way that the ads are hosted on phoronix server and you review each ad and I'll allow them to be shown.

                Dunno about misbehaving ads, but I know the new one-time popover ad can't be closed in Akregator (KHTML).

                  I just noticed the add-bug this morning. Once a klasseloteriet.dk add and another one in Pink&black that I couldn't read. Strange that I get Danish adds while in Germany. Browser: Chrome on ubuntu. Would be nice if this gets fixed, because this is a serious usability killer.

                        However, notice:
                        1. It has a short time-out (waaay shorter than the forums)
                        2. You have to login using the forums
                        3. You can't lock it to your IP (so you *have* to login)

                          I temporarily disabled adblock and good lord!

                          Do you really wonder why people use adblock?

                            Yes, I've noticed this a couple of times. Thought Phoronix was desperate for more ad revenue, for a while there. Good to know it's just a bug. Reading from Norway.

                              I just had this problem on the main page with a Samsung Pixom m8800 running Opera mini in java on Symbian OS, but the problem is longer there... So no reproduce.

                              I live in the Netherlands and I am currently in a bus in Haarlem and my ISP is Vodafone internet.
