Every so often I'll click on a thread or topic and get the MN logo filling the whole screen. Refreshing the page makes it all go normal again. Anyone else?

Desktop site, Windows 7, Firefox 47.0.1

Me too!!

Scrantonicity Wed 20-Jul-16 21:41:36

I'm on Safari on an iPad

Camembertie Wed 20-Jul-16 21:47:12

Me too safari and chrome on iPad and iPhone

PlentyOfPubeGardens Wed 20-Jul-16 21:49:29

Oh god I'm glad it's not just me. I thought I might be having some sort of brain fart grin

It's quite funny and harmless (I hope!) as MN glitches go but MNHQ probably need to know it's happening.

Look at the other threads in site stuff, particularly the porn one. They're trying to fix a much bigger problem and this is symptomatic of it. Sadly, it doesn't seem harmless.

BiscuitMillionaire Wed 20-Jul-16 21:52:37

Yes! It's HUGE! And the text below it is simple text like when you don't have enough broadband for a full site. But then click back and onto it again and it's normal.


I'm using Chrome on an old Mac.

emwithme Wed 20-Jul-16 22:12:18

Yep, me too. Chrome (newest version) on a laptop running windows 10.

sorenofthejnaii Wed 20-Jul-16 22:19:33

I blamed my laptop. It is big though. Massive in fact.

bookbook Wed 20-Jul-16 22:21:35

same here
om Macbook and chrome, all updated

DramaAlpaca Wed 20-Jul-16 22:23:01

Me too, yesterday & today.

Laptop, windows 7, chrome.

Hassled Wed 20-Jul-16 22:25:35

Yeah I keep getting this. Laptop, Chrome. It could be worse - it could be porn. Sympathies to those with that problem.

MrSlant Wed 20-Jul-16 22:30:27

Same here, MacBook that's a couple of years old on Safari, been happening for a while, just had one in the last 5 mins. Very odd.

SwedishEdith Wed 20-Jul-16 22:31:48

Me too - Chrome, Desktop

HelenaDove Thu 21-Jul-16 00:36:59

Im getting this too. When i click on threads sometimes i get the big logo. Its like the page you get on your mobile when you click on MN but it comes up with that page if youve run out of credit.

But it does it to me on Google Chrome on the laptop.

mumndad37 Thu 21-Jul-16 01:38:44

I get this a lot in the last few days. MacBookPro here, using Google Chrome, all updated too.

Mummylin Thu 21-Jul-16 01:44:12

Same here iPad safari. Got it earlier but thought I had accidently swiped it to enlarge ! But this time I went to open a thread and giant MN came up instead.

PlentyOfPubeGardens Thu 21-Jul-16 10:06:06

I hadn't thought it could be linked, ShowOfHands. I think the style sheet isn't loading so the logo isn't told what size it should be and all the text below is unformatted.

I dunno, I'm adblocked, pop-up blocked and no-scripted to the hilt and the only obvious security-type problems I've had were a couple of 'threat blocked' messages on Avast a week or so ago.

Maybe the style sheet contains something dodgy? Or maybe tech are turning it off very briefly now and again to try to isolate the other problems?

It hasn't happened this morning, yet.

ProfYaffle Thu 21-Jul-16 10:09:41

I've been getting it too. Interesting it might be linked to that dodgy link thing. I'm ad-blocked, pop up blocked etc too.

It's really annoying, get the big logo, hit back, wait an age for the page to load again, then wait to click before the whole page leaps about, it's infuriating.

JinRamen Thu 21-Jul-16 10:09:58

Happening here, too. Safari on ipad. I thought I was just a loading issue too.

SwedishEdith Thu 21-Jul-16 10:13:58

Interesting - I've got a Chromebook and there's no antivirus software to download. But, it's been shutting itself down a lot recently. Presumably it's detecting and dealing with something it's finding?

WorraLiberty Thu 21-Jul-16 16:51:28

Same here - desktop, Chrome and desktop Firefox.

Also adblocked and pop-up blocked.

I've noticed Mumsnet has become really adblock unfriendly though lately. The page still jumps after it loads and has done for months and months.

The last I heard, tech had said it happens to people who use adblock, but I'm not prepared to stop using it, because the site becomes really slow without it.

emwithme Thu 21-Jul-16 19:11:31

Yes, I'm also ad-blocked and pop-up-blocked.

And no, I won't change it for the same reason as Worra

PlentyOfPubeGardens Thu 21-Jul-16 20:42:01

I won't disable adblock on MN because it appears to be a massive security risk. I've said before I'd be happy to pay a small subscription for a truly ad-free version because I do appreciate that MNHQ need to make money.

I occasionally wonder why so many companies try to track me when I use this site (according to my avast web thingy). It's 11 at the moment, it was 12 an hour ago. Far higher than anywhere else I go online.

Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Lotame, AudienceScience Inc., Google GPT, Quantcast, Doubleclick, Skimlinks, Scorecard Research and Google GTM confused

I get it that the site is free to use and we are therefore the 'product' but I think it's a bit like farming in that you have to look after your product's welfare a bit if you want to stay profitable. If you leave people your product open to malware because ad revenue, if you allow people your product to be tracked by the entire internet and its hilarious cat, if you just shrug and count the clicks while we are overrun by goady fuckers who have been encouraged here from the DM ... people your product will just bugger off elsewhere and you will no longer have a community that every advertiser wants to reach.

Sorry for the essay, there's a few things that have been bothering me for a while.

BertieBotts Thu 21-Jul-16 20:42:51

I get this too.

The jumping issue is also still happening...
