For the past fortnight when I scroll down a page on MN, using the buttons over there - - - - > that say pg dn and stuff, two purple boxes saying 'Active' and 'I'm on' follow me down. And then hover over stuff. So I have to keep wiffling about with the - - - - > silver line thing at the side there, using my mouse to ponce up and down in order to read it properly, which is annoying because it's a touch responsive mouse on a lapop and I spilled superglue on it ages ago and now it doesn't work properly.

Why is this happening please? Can you make it stop?

It's supposed to happen.

Why is it supposed to happen? Two purple boxes floating about in the middle of the page obscuring everything? It never happened before and is stupid!

Also I can't click on them so they are just there, they're not links to anything!

IvorHughJackolantern Thu 11-Oct-12 20:35:08

Oh blush I can click on them

(Stupid mouse)

Is there a way I can get rid of them? Please...?

Go to Customise, scroll down to other options and change 'Hide the viewport bar' to Yes.

Ahhhhhhhhh that's better, thank you Rusty thanks

How weird, I've never ticked 'yes' on that and haven't been into customise for yonks.

Praise be, hopefully I can now go back to never ever touching my filthy mouse.
