Glad to help Joe. I had been having the same problem for a couple of months. I did not post until know as I did not have a solution to our problem.
This may work on other sites that sieze control of the back button. Right click on the back button and you will see what is happening when you click it, then block that string.

Ahhh, power of words and pictures!

They removed the offending ad panel from the display. Sneaky devils!

It depends on how the designer set the internal timer for the "Title=" tag on their HTML translator. Its supposed to only last between 15-30 seconds as they're not meant to be a large descriptive block, just a short 1-2 title describing what your mouse is over.

Most code designers (web sites etc..) are a bit lazy as it requires more technical time to make a little CSS based window hover (Requires writing up Javascript that is cross browser compatible) that will stay open as long as the mouse is over the object that is calling it, so they use the pop up title/alt tag instead which is meant as a short few second notifier.

I have tried Fire Fox, Chrome and others, they all have issues. For MY software and applications and a lot of other people IE works the best.
As for hitting various keys and tabs I DON'T WANT TO. I want this website to work like all other websites I visit. Now it does.
When a person has a problem and posts it on a forum they are seeking help. NOT THERES YOUR PROBLEM YOUR NOT DOING IT MY WAY.
I.E. is one of the worst browsers out there for actually following HTML design specifications, they tend to create their own version of things, which don't work right when they encounter websites written to pure HTML standards. It also doesn't have any free ad-blocking plug ins to strip the ads out of a webpage as you view it that work as effectively as the ones available for Firefox.

I use Firefox and I don't see a single ad anywhere on this site or any other, my browser is not hijacked by aggressive Javascript code designed to try and force the ad on you, like the link tracker that is being used by some of the ads being run on this site.

Also, I don't run the risk of accidentally loading malicious code onto my system as Firefox doesn't support Active X, which is a notorious means of hijacking IE browser systems to load Worms onto a system.

I used to be a hard core IE user once, last IE I used was IE 6, IE 7 was a mess and 8 was a slight improvement, 9 got better, but the design is somewhat counter intuitive to me.

IE 10, we will have to wait and see, I've played with the earlier version at work since we already have RC versions of WIndows 8.

Oh, and for those that have temporary relief from blocking "http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/page", this will only last till it oscillates to the next one in line, that URL is loaded by a javascript function that randomizes which one of the 100s of those URLs it uses, the only sure fire way to end the suffering is to use a browser with ad blocking software that is smart enough to stop the scripts before they load.

You didn't answer my question.

On this forum(actually any), if you place your mouse cursor over a thread title, how long does the window stay up if you leave you mouse cursor over the thread title.

Dunner and Red,
What Red is saying is true. What Red may not understand is that Opera can override the "standard" balloon timeout value allowing the balloon to stay visible as long as the cursor remains over the link object. You are both correct from the perspective you are coming from.

Dave

Edit - Opps I meant to say Red is correct for "most" web browsers

Just checked I.E.8 stays up for ~6 seconds. Chrome 15.*. is 10 seconds. I suspect that FF does not stay up either. Opera has alway stayed up for as long as the cursor is over a thread title on any forum that has that feature enabled.

Edit: I'm a slow reader.

I haven't tried Chrome, but IE is noticeably slower loading the exact same thread or site than Opera. The only problem with Opera, is that a lot of sites do not recognize it. Opera does have an option to Mask or Identify as IE or FF, which does help when sites refuse to work.

I've used Opera, it's pretty decent for a Mozilla clone, but they also did a bit of a Microsoft in that Opera also doesn't completely follow standards either, but does their own thing.

As I said, the feature that developers are using to do that nifty little summary thing was never meant to stay up with a large block of text for any length of time, it was meant for use as a 1-2 word identifier so that someone could mouse over say a picture and it would pop up with a brief title/description of what the object being displayed is.

IPB in 3.2 has moved away from this in that they actually have a hidden pane that will appear if you leave your mouse over a title long enough.

vBulletin could be adapted to do the same as well by doing a skin modification so that it would do likewise, but that would have to be done on the server side.

Well, depends on what time today you mean. They tried a test early this morning by adding the offending ad block back in. Sorry to say it failed once again so, they removed it again. How I manage to pop in at these moments I'll never know!

I am just thankful that the webmaster/developer is testing it before commiting to it!

Dave
