Does anyone else have this problem?

Just sticking this here, not a response to you. But I just thought of another thing that drives me batty. Out in the side bar there is this thing with little snippets from videos. In the beginning, my eye would sometimes catch something that looked vaguely interesting. But clicking on the snippet does not take you to the video. Instead you get a page with 50 million videos and no way to find the video that originally caught your eye.

The same thing happened to me. It was beyond annoying.

Yeah, when Finally_Me posted down below, I read the link about disabling it. I followed the instructions, but they didn't work.

I use Firefox with an ad blocker. It makes a huge difference (over IE). On the iMac, I use Safari--I don't have problems there either.

You can hard code the colors in if you want.

for example would give you a new paragraph break and turn the text blue. At the end of the paragraph, you'd put to turn the color back to black--generally, that's not much of an issue, but if you were using multiple colors to differentiate between what several people were saying, failing to end the font color at the end of each paragraph would lead to some strange cascading colors (the next paragraph would default back to the last color not turned off)

A google search of "html coding" will give you webpages with lot more instruction and examples of coding you can use.

Well, I'm relieved to find it's not just me with this problem. I thought I'd downloaded some hideous virus that Norton didn't catch and I was going to need a new laptop.


And yeah, I hate the bing ads. I've been tempted to just fill a post with words like "Viagra" and "Nexxium" and "NBC" to see what happens, but I don't want to get banned.

It worked on my DH's laptop. I haven't tried it on our desktop, though. It mentioned something about cookies and how the links would come back any time that you refresh cookies or something like that.

It wasn't just me!

Ok, so I think I solved the problem. I am now using Firefox, and I installed AdBlock Plus. It loads so fast, it's like I'm not even at iVillage.

Anyone else find it odd that the CMs and the higher ups were strangely silent in this thread? Hmmmmm.
