A pop up telling me that I need to type a message first?

(63 Posts)

Just that really. It's happened a few times now, I think it's on chat but maybe AIBU too. I open a thread for the first time and it has a pop-up on the top of the page telling me that I need to write a message first with an 'ok' button. It also flicks to that tab rather than keeping me on active convos where I'm opening every thread that looks vaguely interesting

Should say it only happens occasionally and only when I click to open a thread.

BeScarefulWhatYouWitchFor Tue 01-Oct-13 14:51:54

I get this in AIBU and chat. I'm on Firefox.

OK - Tech is going to try to see if they can implement a fix for this later on today - so do please let us know if it keeps happening from this evening onwards.

I've had this intermittently for a few days, a pop up, then i close it down and it goes away. This morning it would not go. I had to crash out of Safari in the end and restart. I'm on Mac.

Infact it is exactly as Unexpected describes so much better than I could

Unexpected Tue 01-Oct-13 09:06:19

Yes, I get this too - am on a Mac using Safari. It has been happening for a few days and is really irritating now. Initially, I could click away the message but yesterday/today it refuses to shut down and prevents me from doing anything on the browser so I have to log out and then back in again.

StormyBrid Tue 01-Oct-13 09:03:14

Oh, and I'm using chrome on a laptop.

StormyBrid Tue 01-Oct-13 09:02:44

I'm getting this on every thread I open - I scroll through active conversations right clicking and opening in a new tab, and when I go to that tab the message pops up. Happens with every thread.

I use safari on a MacBook pro and it is happening non stop now. I have had to quit out of safari 4 times now in the space of 10 mins
