Is anyone else getting multiple windows opening???

When they try to leave Chowhound? If this keeps happening, well sayonara, I'm gone, it is just too annoying.

    Its when you try to close the window that more tabs open? are they advertisements or chowhound related?

    What browser and operating system?

        I am sure engineering will reply in the morning, but in the meantime you could try another browser and see if the same thing happens. Firefox or chrome are generally considered to be good. Not a fix, but it would help narrow some things down for engineering.

    2. Nope. Your computer is probably infected, browser hijack or worse. Install and run some antivirus and antispyware software.

        I have up to date antivirus and scanned yesterday.

      2. What pages are loading in these windows you're seeing? Moreover, what action triggers them- closing the window, logging out, visiting another page, or something else?

          Since you posted this, I have not had the problem, good, yet frustrating because I cannot reproduce it. Yet I have done nothing that I am aware of to change anything.

          It would happen when I closed the window without logging out. It happened with every window I closed for roughly a two week period, my page, a board, or a message, anything. But as I never fully opened any of the multiple pages that popped (two or three of them, both happened) up, I cannot tell you which page was opening, except that it was a CHOW page.
