    IMG_0257.PNG sneaky little guy just chilling at the bottom of my screen. He won't pop up on his own, he won't let me drag him up. He is there on every new tab I open to read TB today. Just a shady bar with an "X" inside of a circle. "Please don't close me" he pleads. The rest of the site seems to be functioning fine whether or not I close the non-up-popping popup. I suppose it's really just a pop since it never comes up?

    Ah hah! Sneaky. I'll get this fixed in a few minutes. Should only be there for unregistered search-engine traffic.

    I’m getting some weird popups that don’t impede my view or any functionality. I can clear them with the X—they show up at the bottom of the screen, first a little bigger with the X in the right corner, then they quickly resolve lower with the X in the center.

    Not every page or post, but one out of five that I navigate to. Screen shots:

    Mine started about halfway thru the day, looks the same as the OP's & others. The very first time it made an appearance it said something ad-like, but i don't remember exactly what. I clicked the little X, and now it just peeks out over the bottom, and doesn't seem to be on every page, or hindering browsing TB at all otherwise. I'll see if I can screenshot the little bugger :lock:

    Gah! Just as I read Catcau's "I'll screenshot the bugger" I noticed it did have a lil ad for oil changes or something. I went and scrolled and now it's shy again.

    Yep me too, just started yesterday. I don't mind the banners, pop-ups after years on here are kinda annoying.

    Sorry, we're still working this. Should be gone later today. In the meantime just hit that X to make it go away
