    oh another thing, not sure if you guys have caught this or not but your feats slider causes a memory leak. It reloads all the images over and over and over instead of loading once and reusing. just fyi

    Same thing is happening to me on the forums- I often open threads I am interested in reading on several different tabs, and forum threads on tabs I am not looking at are opening new webpages to some kind of ad site. It has never happened before today.

    They are trying to track the source of the ad redirects and eliminate them.

    What is odd is only some people run into the issue.

    This is maddening - especially since we cannot re-create it on our end.  Yesterday we completely changed networks hoping to fix this.  I must have loaded 200+ pages all over the site yesterday and could not make it happen.

    Do you try testing in a VM with a configuration matching one of the people who are bringing up this issue?

    Perhaps you should start a thread just for that so it will get some attention.  Right now it is buried in a thread about another topic.
