Recently I've noticed that if my mouse cursor happens to pass over an underlined word in a post, a popup ad appears.:eek_ma::thumpdown:
Has anyone else noticed this?
They can be avoided by watching for the underlined words and avoiding them with the mouse cursor, but its still somewhat irritating when it occurs inadvertently.:mad:

So... what's up wit dat? :confused:

It might be a add-on, I know under Firefox I had one that got installed. Delete it and you'll be back to normal.
That was it. Found a couple of UNAUTHORIZED add-ons. Don't know which one was causing the problem but deleted them both anyway.

Thanks for the help, all! :beerglass::thumbs_up::s9:

I had to do a System Restore to get the bug out. I was also getting a vertical banner on the rightside suggesting alternative websites.
Both are gone now.
