    I've had the same thing happen. The ad is trying to refresh and every time it tries, the cursor disappears while i am trying to type. I'm not sure if it is limited to plumbing forum or if it is always the same ad.

    This site is so loaded with ads it takes forever for everything to load before I can get in.

    I thought I was the only one there for a while. I have tried to use my phone and just don't like it. I can't seem to get both hands on that little keyboard.

    Thanks for letting me know you are getting it also.

    I'll report to tech again. In the meantime, upper left corner usually has an X and that can be clicked and it goes away and you can post as regular.

    We discussed this in another thread Angie. The popup blocker seemed to help. I was clicking the X before that but it was aggravating.

    Okay. Sometimes these threads get blurred in my mind as to which forums you are on blend together.
