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.
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?
Of course, after I re-enabled it the pop-ups didn't return, either, so I doubt its Greasemonkey.
I'm curious, if you see it happening again, what you'd see if you told firefox to not block them.
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.
it's not just me?
how do I fix it I love Raneados
now that I get it, it is actually pretty funny
I think it happened to TFS and maybe Tube.
Also Rorus I think you mean TFS and Shoe.
And I think Essee's explanation makes the most sense! If I see it again in Chrome I'll report it
