    something or somebody is in here messing around.
    buggy, halting, weird movement, reacts oddly to input.

    you probably ought to check to see what is going on

    I'm experiencing when I type a message the page will jump around and I have to go back and place my cursor in the text box then continue typing, it's pretty annoying.

    Ross,

    We really care. Unfortunately, or fortunately, given my coding skills, I can't fix that stuff, only alert the very capable owner/admins. . .

    and they care, a lot!! @rob lay @Booker

    Something’s been going on for weeks. The onset seemed to coincide with the introduction of the current ads.

    Off all the sites l use this is the slowest. Out of nowhere it will start reloading itself. Typing takes forever very slow. And it may reload in the middle and l have to start all over. Many times l just give up.

    This web page was reloaded because a problem occurred.

    This will be my signature line if I ever go Rossa again.

    :rolleyes:

    Get a decent ad blocker and see if it helps.

    Pretty sure it has to do with the ads loading slowly and bumping the page around.

    Can’t never seem to be able to click on the right forum as by the time the click is received the page has moved down.

    I have read this post 1,000 times unintentionally trying to get to the thread I want...then I back out and re-try.

    I have one . It works fine everywhere except here. Does Ferrari Chat require an extry spayshul ad blocker? How about dumping those ads instead? They’re just clutter.

    I use AdGuard pro on an iPad because I had the same issues. Speed is great, no ads, cannot recommend enough. I went with the pro version for a couple of bucks just to avoid the possibility of any ads or other stuff that you get hassled with when using free aps.

    I have noticed performance issues more in old style. I suggest trying the new/default style and seeing if that improves performance. I also have encountered the mobile/IOS pop-ups, and despite this being an Apple issue, I am working with development to research why the ads target FChat

    I have all the same problems using New style. It all went wacky when the new ads were put in last year.

    Those ads should just be suspended for a few days to see if performance improves. How much revenue could be at stake? The ads look like they were created in a high school computer class anyway. Make that elementary school. They tarnish FC’s brand in my opinion.

    you cant tell if there is a bug going through the system??

    here is what bothers me....we have to tell you that the system has a problem?
    that tells me that you are NOT monitoring what is going on in any kind o f regular way, and when confronted with an issue you dont seem to know what to do and how to solve it.

    that tells me that all of our computers are more vulnerable to issues if and when we log into fchat.

    sorry guys, but that is unacceptable.

    please tell us how you monitor the system, how you go about solving issues, and how you are doing your best to keep our community of computers safe from virus infection.

    Like I posted in the other thread(s) on this issue, one of the Lexus sites has a similar problem with ads which had a tie to google and their pushing ads. My theory expressed last week (to Rob) was that hackers were targeting car sites and using the ads for nefarious purposes. FWIW, I noticed some strange things over the weekend with google locking up but it suddenly cleared up on Monday. I have been able to use Safari for about the past 10 days without the beachball but I still get the memory hog notice.

    NoScript on Firefox removes the bottom ads.

    I'm seeing the jumping around bug on my LG phone, (about 3 years old). Rebooting doesn't help.
    F-chat is well behaved on my HP laptop running MS-Windows 10 Home and Chrome browser, (about 2 years old).
