The Bouncing Effect

For the last couple of days, I have noticed that the page readjusts or "bounces" when:

1. I open a new page.

2. I move the mouse over the top category bar w/ "recipes", "boards", etc.

Therefore, for every page view it appears to bounce up when opened and then down when I go to the top bar. I find this very annoying. Is there something I can do on my end to fix this or is there something that engineering can do if it's a site issue? I use IE6. Are others having this same problem, or is it just me?

      It happens with IE 6 but not with Firefox.

      1. Same. I use Safari on an Apple computer.

        1. I'm not seeing the category bar bounce with safari, but it's definitely
          there when a page is loaded or the theme is changed. While loading, the
          page appears to be rendering about 10 pixels lower than it's final destination
          and when the load is complete, it jumps up those ten pixels.

          1. I noticed this the other day, too. It is kind of annoying. I am using IE6.

              I'm using IE6, too, and having the same experience.

              Thanks for starting the thread, Carb Lover - I'd been trying to figure-out how to put into words what I was experiencing and stumbling a whole heck of a lot.
