Screen jumps to bottom banner ad (Chrome)

When I attempt to scroll down (on greyelf's excellent, long series of posts on her recent Bay Area trip the screen jumps to the bottom banner ad. Anyone else having similar problems?

    1. Yes, the jumping to the bottom is new for me. Still also has the recent problems: blank screen flashes, "unadorned" screen flashes, then flashes to the real screen. I could (grumbling) handle the flashes, but that jumping to the bottom is making it less than usable.

      1. Hi

        I see a hashtag at the end of the link you included in your post. I'm not sure why that's there but we think it might be the culprit. If you load the discussion without the hashtag, does the page still jump to the bottom?

        Also, are you seeing this problem on any other pages?

          Interesting--I haven't noticed the problem in the last week. I arrived at the previous link from my rss reader. I don't know where the # symbol got included, but will look for that as an issue in the future.

        2. I had this too just now. So I came here. Then I went back to the thread where it was happening (just to see if there was a hashtag involved) and noticed that the problem stopped.

          1. This happened to me last week on the home cooking board only. Then it stopped, only to recur again today.

              Hi Pwmfan.

              Do you remember where you navigated *from* to get to the Home Cooking board? We're trying to figure out why a hashtag might be being inserted into the url, which may be what's causing the page to jump.

                Happened to me early this morning, too, but sorry, DeborahL, I didn't pay attention to the antecedents.
