Why is the large white space at the top of the forum page?

    Hi

    Here's a picture of what I'm talking about.
    Is this what everyone sees?

    It's fine on my end...try ctrl F5 to refresh the page. I know from past experience when some changes are made to the site (code), every now and then I see a glitch like this. If ctrl F5 doesn't work, sign out and sign back it, that sometimes helps.

    Hi

    I had to refresh it 3 times but the 3rd time it went away.
    It's been working this way for a long time.

    It is now smaller and has a Play Now and Download button in it.
    I have no idea what it wants to download?

    I've had a lot of problems with Google Chrome in the last year.
    It seems like every time they update it, it works worse.
    It used to be a joy to use.

    Now I keep getting popup ads that I can't close and that I tought were supposed to be blocked?
    And I've had a lot of display errors etc, that I don't see anyplace else.

    I've use it for years but I'm thinking about changing to something else.

    Mike

    I'm still having this issue in Chrome, but in FireFox it works fine, the same with loading links from e-mail.
    I'm abut to switch, I've had so many problems with Chrome in the last year.

    Now when I refresh the page it looks the way that it should for a second and then reverts back to the big blank space.

    I just did a separate link to the precise address, Mike. On my screen there, it is full of adverts. Maybe you need to adjust you spam filters or ad blockers.

    I just went through the options in Chrome but I can't find anything that seems to relate to it.
    I have a pop up blocker activated I'll try deactivating it and see it that makes a difference.
