I am on desktop, (phone and ipad are charging). But I use desktop a lot anyway.

Today, I noticed that the site would just default to the Google search home page after about ten/fifteen seconds, no warnings. Whoa!

Easy to solve, just press the back button and I'm back!

But is a bit of a pain. I have three other similar talk sites open and it is not happening with any of THEM.

Anyone had similar today?

I’ve just been getting the win an iPhone one that’s a bugger to get rid of.

Yes I've had the Google thing today.

Any ideas how to fix. Thanks, it is driving me mad now.

I have anti virus software and all that. This is just like one minute I'm reading a thread and seconds later MN no more only Google search page.

Just wondered if anyone else has the same thing happening.

I had it a few times earlier too! It seems to have stopped now, i thought i was just pressing something but didnt consider it could be a fault with the site.

Yup a couple of times just now. On laptop using Firefox, Windows 10

Yes. It's been doing this for the past 5 minutes or so.

I'm on a laptop and using Chrome.

Thank you everyone.

It is always good to know that something other than my own device/software is doing this!

Hopefully will be sorted soon.

Yes; it's driving me mad! Including just now as I searched to see if there was a thread about it.

Using an iMac/Safari 10.1.2

I’ve just had this happen too. I was getting the iPhone pop up earlier.

It's happening to me too... Mumsnet, is it "you" causing this? It doesn't happen on any other website.

Greensleeves Wed 14-Feb-18 01:38:36

Oh thank fuck, I thought my laptop was on the blink!

Yeah, really annoying

CarolsSecretCookieRecipe Wed 14-Feb-18 06:16:58

Yes, I'm getting this too on my PC

KayaG Wed 14-Feb-18 06:25:12

Me too.

Nikephorus Wed 14-Feb-18 08:27:28

Still happening now. I'm assuming it's a MN thing since I've not had it with any other sites. Makes you wonder how secure this site is...

Yep, Chrome on Chromebook. I thought I was inadvertently clicking something at first.
