As of a couple days ago there is an ad (for me its a video ad from Toyota) that are on the right side of the page while viewing the forums that are forcing the page to scroll back up to it. As I scroll down to go through the forum messages these ads are forcing the thread to go back up to the ad. This makes it almost impossible to scroll through the forums and I'm about ready to cease doing so as it is extremely frustrating!

I had a very similar problem today in my Chrome Browser. There were two video ads: one on the side, near the beginning of a thread, and one near the end of the page. I simply could not read a long post that was very interesting, because the page kept bouncing to the end and back. When I went to read the problematic thread in Internet Explorer, I did not have the problem.

I have been avoiding installing adblocker because I hate loading 3rd party software. I realize that I should be avoiding Internet Explorer too--but sometimes it is the only solution for me.

I'm having exactly the same issue with Firefox, when there are the small video ads on the top and bottom banners it becomes impossible to read the forum as the focus is being taken by each ad in turn making scrolling impossible.

I have no desire to turn on an ad blocker but I'm not being left with much of a choice here...

After going away for about a week, the problem came back yesterday. I could not see the list of threads in the NCL sub-forum, because the screen kept bouncing back and forth between the two animated video ads. So, the problem is rare but a real show-stopper when it occurs.

I haven't tried to contact anyone, because it is an infrequent problem, and I have a workaround: if necessary, I open the forum in Internet Explorer.

It's happening in IE and Firefox -- Very annoying. I thought this was the thread for reporting to admins????
