That "special offer" ad is messing up the menus

I am using FireFox 2.0.0.11.

The upper right-hand pull down advertisement is messing up the menus by disabling them (cannot click on links).

I have to move cursor to upper right hand, so that advertisement shows, then move away. Suddenly the menu items (New Posts & Quick Links) work.

Grrrr...

What it is, is when you mouse over the ad to get to the scrollbar - the ad only changes color, and does not open. The links are then disabled where the ad would have opened to, until you either reload the page or go over the ad to open/close it as normal. I use FireFox as well.

I think this is the problem I posted about before. When running on Ubuntu the transparency is not there, so it looks horrible and blocks the last tab.


I attached screenshots to see if it is the same problem or something different.

No that is not the problem.

When you accidentally move your curser over the ad and back off again, it turns like this



Then you can not click on anything on the page until you scroll back over the ad again. This is annoying.

its happening to me as well when I reply to posts. Using style 3.6x FF 2.0.0.5
When I reply to a post, all the links do not work. Like if I reply hit enter etc.. then click new posts or such, its as if there is no link. If i scroll across the peel away and back to the links they are fine.

I don't get that. When I mouse away from the ad, it curls back up out of the way.

It may be your browser, or it may be that you need to force a reload of the TAZ scripts.

Yes. That's what I get.

I had to play with it for a second to get it to happen but it shouldn't be a problem.

All I had to do was move my mouse over the add again to let it open and once it closes the problem is gone.

It seems like you are hitting it just enough to make it think it has been opened but not enough for it to realize you have moved your mouse.

Just move it back over the corner of the page again and the problem is fixed... At least for me anyways.

Firefox/2.0.0.11

I've been getting the same behavior. It only happens if the mouse is passed over the ad quickly without hovering on the ad at all. Also Firefox/2.0.0.11 here.

Those with FF and the cookie trail menu locks after having accidently moused over the special offer... mouse over it and off a second time so it fully rolls back up, and the cookie trail should work again.

Hope that helps.

Yeah I do do that but it is annoying that we have to do that every time...

I am also using latest FF with latest Java installed.

I see it as well on Windows with Firefox. Seems to be a bug in the flash, you move the mouse away before the animation starts the flash acts like it is open even when it is not, preventing the clicking of the links.

IE does not have the same problem, you can get it to look the same but the links still work.

Ubuntu shows a similar action, however the big pink square blocks the links so you can not even see them
