It sounds like you may have clicked on either "Favorites" or 'History" in your browser (right at the top). There should be a little X there for you to close the panel though. :smile:

lol...no...that wasn't it...I know the favs thing...lol wasn't that...it IS gone today though. Like I said...it was all empty...sort of like the BbRing drop down I can see towards the bottom of this page...under the names of us online...cept..there was no words in it...but the arrow was there, just like on the BbRing one...and it did drop down...only, once again...empty inside it!! It WAS weird. lol
Specially the way it seemed to follow the page around! lol If I scrolled down fast..it'd be gone...then lo and beholed, wait a few seconds and there it was again! Jus popped on the screen like magic! lmao
Hmmm...wonder where it went? Jus glad its gone now! lol
Thanks. :smile:

The same thing has been happening to me !!! I thought I had done something "goofy" or clicked here or there ...... I close the browser .......... and reopen a new one and it sometimes seems to be gone.

Wish I had a better memory,because I know what you are talking about because it happened to me a long time ago.Can't remember what caused it.Do you have a popup stopper installed?Try turning that off if you do and see if that does it.

It sounds like some website (or advertiser) is responsible for this - I'd run a virus check just to be on the safe side. :smile:

BbAdminMod,what it loooked like was the drop down box that the interact and bbcode things are in,only there was never anything in it.Sorry it was a long time ago and I can't remeber how you solved it.

I don't think anything like what's been described in this thread would have been anything to do with us, chickenlady. :smile:

I didn't mean to imply that it was the fault of bboards.Just meant that I remembered having the problem and someone here had helped me figure out what was causing it.Sorry.

Ohh, I see, sorry. :smile: When you said "how you solved it", I assumed you meant it was something on our end. I'll do a search and see if I can find anything. :smile:

It sounds like a geocity/yahoo site javascript scroller. If the previous site you visited had this "feature" it may have followed you here. It's almost as if IE doesn't close it out properly when you leave the site in question.
Probably a restart on your browser would fix it tho'

just my 2cents..
cheers

Ah, now that sounds right - I've not experienced it myself, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if that's what's been happening. :smile:
