on the way out or a fault with GR or something else.

Does anyone else get the screen scrolling up when in GR?

I have windows 7 and my browser is Firefox. I haven't noticed it happening in any other sites or programmes.

Is this just after you've posted something Ann?

If so, at the top of the screen on a green back ground is some sort of GR announcement. I noticed it a number of months ago, but have since forgotten what it says. After a few seconds during which you should have been able to read it, it disappears and the thread text slides up - hence the screen appearing to roll.

If it's not that, then can't help. Sorry

thanks, not noticed that at all so will look out for it.

Do you have a mouse with a scroll wheel between the buttons if it's been pushed down it will scroll as you move the mouse quite confusing till you twigg it!
Might be whats happened.

*plays with my mouse button*

Thank you Mayfield, now I know why sometimes my pages take themselves for a walk :-D



AnninGlos Report 2 Apr 2013 16:57

I will check next time but I don't think I touched the scroll button on the mouse.


ChrisofWessex Report 2 Apr 2013 17:16

It is happening as I speak Ann!!


AnninGlos Report 2 Apr 2013 17:27

that is good Chris. Sorry, what I mean it is good that it happens to somebody else as oh was convinced it was my pc on its last legs. hasn't happened to me in the last half hour or so.


AnninGlos Report 2 Apr 2013 17:28

Ah Det. Just seen that message !info post added, then, when the message disappeared the screen scrolled.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 2 Apr 2013 17:32


It makes me feel sick if I'm tired or...umm...under the weather ;-)


AnninGlos Report 2 Apr 2013 17:43

Gives me a headache.

It happens to me sometimes Ann ,,,,,I've just ignored it as it only happens on GR.


Bobtanian Report 6 Apr 2013 10:23

The screen DOES line itself up after posting


MargarettawasMargot Report 6 Apr 2013 11:28

I don't think that it's your pc as it happens to me too-particularly towards the bottom of the page.I press the LHS of the mouse, and stop scrolling,but it just keeps seems to have a mind of it's own.Very annoying.It mainly seems to happen on GR.



AnnCardiff Report 6 Apr 2013 11:35

mine too, I don't like it as it takes me longer to focus my eyes again....I really do wish that sites would not take it into their own hands to decide what I want to do.


Sue Report 6 Apr 2013 11:42

Have also had it especially on my tree. Just seems to move around from time to time. Have basically ignored it, as not affecting anything, but annoying just the same.!!
There is another thread i have added to re problems, which may be caused by recent update, of which i knew nothing. :-D

As Chris says, its happening right now.!!!
