Thanks,

For my specific issue, there is really nothing to screen shot and certainly no URL to copy. Just freezes the whole page and I hear the ad.

How about any common areas of the site this occurs in? Threads or profile pages or the index? Any common theme?

Only happens to me in Threads.

It is also random. If I refresh the page several times, sometimes if the add changes it will unlock the page and I get scrolling back. The Adds that are causing the issue will auto-play with sounds.

I don't remember it exactly, but it was for something with menthol in it. I muted my sound after the first time.

I'm not an expert, but I play one on the internet.

Every Auto-play Ad with sound seems to cause the issue. Sometimes after the add finishes you can scroll. Most of the times I keep refreshing until the Ad changes to something else or I go to a different thread out of frustration.

Just happened again on a 'finish' Ad

And another on a 'Amope' Ad

And another on a 'Ford' Ad, The All New SuperDuty

Again on a 'Mr. Lube' Ad, $30 coupon for wipers.

Using Chrome. Does not happen on my phone's browser or Tapatalk.

I just found out that I have FLASH blocked on Chrome, so that may be why I am not seeing the problems?

I am having an issue with the main page freezing this morning. Also, while typing this, the site would not allow keystrokes. I had to close the browser and re-open

Disabling Flash did not fix the issue.

I also tried on another PC running Chrome and the same problems persisted. I am also running Chrome in incognito mode, not sure if that matters.

Just to clarify, I have been running this exact setup for over a year on this site without issues. So it is something that has changed on this site.

I opened up all the links in the active topics section and nothing popped up for me in Chrome. no adblock, no plugins either.
not sure if this is only happening to American IPs or something (different regions get their own ads).

I was able to take some screen shots.

During the load of the page(1st pic), you can see the scrollbar. Once the Ad on the right-hand side begins to initialize(2nd pic), the scrollbar disappears. The Ad starts to play (3rd pic) and increases in size.

Just want to report that I have had ZERO issues this morning. Not sure what has changed on the site, but I have not even closed down my browser from yesterday when this was happening.

Thanks
