The title explains the problem I've been encountering when scrolling slowly down the page in question it suddenly does right to the bottom without warning so that one must rescroll back up again.:-(
The answer to that is yes, Phil only on the xfforum and is continuing it seems.Does this happen only on this forum ?
Do you see similar problems on other web pages ?
If the answer is only on this forum, it could be that, as I have noticed, response times have been increasing over the last couple of months, and, on occasions, the page freezes. This could be an indication of an overload problem, or similar, with the server(s).
We might be at crossed purposes here.I normally click on the last page number.
Maybe a silly question Peter, but what computer are you using, and what sort of mouse ?The answer to that is yes, Phil only on the xfforum and is continuing it seems.
I'm on the web quite a lot, Phil regarding business mails and downloading invoices and order confirmations internationally. I'm also online regarding the many business banking accounts all of which present me with absolutely no problems, and can only repeat that the problem is concerning the xfforum.co.uk site. Until two days ago all was normal and then suddenly the pages spring from top to bottom without warning. The mouse I have is electronic and has no batteries and is cable connected to the PC.Maybe a silly question Peter, but what computer are you using, and what sort of mouse ?
I use a MacBook Pro, with a wireless Apple Magic Mouse, connected via Bluetooth.
I have noticed that, when the mouse batteries are getting weaker, the scroll function is one of the first things to suffer.
However, if your problems are only on this forum, I would tend to stick with my original remark about server overload.
Maybe the Administrators could advise on this ?
But if you do this, you might lose some of your automatic log-ins, where you have identifiers held in memory.Suggest that you clear your PC History/Cache and then after rebooting the issue may be resolved.
I just read your post after I posted a reply just now, Kevin and think you have hit the nail squarly on the head as to the possible cause which I have observed, so we'll see if you can rectify the problem.You should be able to clear cookies and have it set to ignore log info. But I can't speak to that ability for all browsers. I know IE, Chrome, and Firefox all have it.
When you get taken to the bottom of the page, do you notice if you screen lands on a ad or anything? I've seen this before, when an ad has an over aggressive setting that forces you to look at it. They shouldn't be on the site, so if this is it we'll have to find out who found a way around our filters.
Technical will want to know which advert is being seen when the issue is encountered.What I have observed is that the sudden downward movement of the page in question which is getting much worse, by the way, since I posted this thread, is possibly caused by advertising blocks making themselves very apparent in that particular segment of the page in question.
Quite frankly, it is now becoming very irritating and I don't see any effort from a webmaster in rectifying this dilemma pain-in-the-a.... although he is surely aware of our complaints.
The instructions to carry out "this and that" will be in German also which you understand very well.As Pekem is aware I'm not a computer expert and doing this or that is useless to me because everything on my computer is in German!!
Yes re-booting is as you describe.Many thanks for the pages Peter. I'm using Microsoft Interent explorer. What do you mean by rebooting switching off and starting again?
I did all that was in the instructions you mailed many times already but, as above in my last post, have now adjusted the cookies setting to the max rejection level possible.
