    Trouble with some pages

    When I'm on the quilting board, at a certain point, the page does not stay still. It bounces back and forth. Has anyone else had this problem?

    No, I have not had this problem. I use a Mac but don't think that has any thing to do with your problem.

    That's funny. I have that problem on my iPad, but not on my Windows desktop computer. Thought maybe it was something about my iPad, but I don't experience the issue with any other websites -- just the QB. Makes reading threads on my iPad more difficult and less satisfying.

    I've had the same problem with my IPad occasionally and it is very very annoying.

    Just guessing here, but I imagine it's something in the way the web pages are programmed combined with the settings in your browser or display. Try changing your text size and see if that makes any difference. Or try reading the pages using a different browser.

    YES! I have this problem when using my IPad and it is VERY annoying! Also hate the line ads which bounce around on the screen before I find the cancel button. ARGH!

    Get rid of the ads. Use a program a lot of us on the board use, Ad Blocker.

    I have that problem on again and off again with all my devices. Often my problem is I'll start typing when I haven't clicked onto the comments/reply section. Then I lose myself for a short while. Sometimes I just have to log off and then back on again.

    Ok, I went to the App Store and got Adblock for Free by Neverads. Went to settings on my iPad to activate it. Will use it for a few days to see if that solves the problem.

    The only time I've had it happen is with my iPad or iPhone - it's related to an ad that seems to resize or something to "get your attention". It's so annoying, I usually leave the board.

    I use to have that problem, but I have gone to Windows 10 and it has all stopped. Maybe its time for an upgrade.
    Never put off what you can do today, because tomorrow may never come.

    I only get it on my iPad and Patrice said it wasn't the board, but my iPad. Maybe it is the ads. I have them blocked but apparently some get through.

    Well, since installing the free ad blocker on my iPad I haven't had this happen. Yeah!

    Prism99 - which ad blocker do you have? I checked the App Store and there are several.

    It's the one I posted earlier in this thread: Adblock for Free by Neverads

    It's free. Once you download it, you go to Settings on your iPad to activate it. The download comes with instructions, but post if you have any questions about it and I'll try to help.
