Ignored Posts Using Pop-ups?

mensch-o-maticmensch-o-matic Registered User regular
So I have Raneados on my ignore list. Everyone does, I know. The weird thing is that occasionally when I click to view his posts they appear as pop-ups (which is annoying because Firefox automatically blocks them) and I don't have any kind of setting to turn that on. It happens randomly and, like I said, neither Firefox nor these forums are set to open posts as pop-ups. I'm not moving the 'view ignored post' button to create a new window, either-and it'll happen with one post but not another one on the same page. I don't know if this is a glitch or intentional so I posted it here just in case.

    Do you have noscript by any chance? If you have yahooapis.com blocked it has that effect, though I have no idea why it would only happen sometimes.

    Also, someone has a greasemonkey script in their signature that auto-clicks the show post link, but I can't remember who it was. Anyone else remember?

    I don't have noscript, though after disabling Greasemonkey one of the posts that popped up went back to normal.

    Of course, after I re-enabled it the pop-ups didn't return, either, so I doubt its Greasemonkey.

    Could be being caused by getting a strange (aka non-2xx aka db error) response from the server, maybe?

    I'm curious, if you see it happening again, what you'd see if you told firefox to not block them.

    everyone I know goes away, in the end

    Just as an FYI, this seems to happen for me only when I have a tab/window open with a thread he's posted in, and I've got Firefox (well, SeaMonkey, actually) saving my session. Basically, it seems like when Firefox loads the previous session, it doesn't properly reload whatever code makes the View Post link work as intended. When you DO allow the "popup," it loads his specific post rather than showing the post in the original page, as it should. This is probably why mensch-o-matic said it only happens with one post on the page-- likely, going back to the original thread after viewing the "pop-up" refreshes the window enough that the code works properly. Somehow.

    Basically, I'm not sure WHY it does this to begin with, but I can tell you that, for me, simply refreshing the page each time (good ol' F5) fixes the problem. I think this is really more a Firefox problem rather than something to do with the forums themselves, though it's only shown up now due to Raneados getting auto-ignored. Anyway, there's my input. This may be a non-issue soon enough... or possibly never, depending on when Tube stops thinking it's funny!

    Edit: Oh yeah, I don't have Greasemonkey at all, by the way.

    Doesn't everyone get ignored when they hit 100,000 posts?

    I think it happened to TFS and maybe Tube.

    100,000 is the number of people on Tube's list though. That list.

    Also Rorus I think you mean TFS and Shoe.

    I must have confused the time Tube banned himself with some other event.

    Might wanna take a gander at this page Rorus

    And I think Essee's explanation makes the most sense! If I see it again in Chrome I'll report it

    People don't write user scripts for you if you don't have something worth saying.
