I'm getting a popup sometimes to a site that wants me to download an update utility for firefox and says I have an old version. I have Firefox 31 so this is a viruspaul-mccartney

Still don't have mentions, The site doesn't redirect back to the topic after I post, When I post, their are no out ward signs that I posted. The only way you could tell I posted if you went to the topic that I posted in.

 

Edit: This updated but my other posts in the Derail didn't

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

@Von Kite What exactly do you mean by "Still don't have mentions"? You can't @mention someone else, or you don't get notifications?

Hopefully the updating thing is just a teething problem. It might take things a bit of time to bed down. FWIW it works OK for me.

I'm aware of the missing popups when you click on a person's profile. I'll fix it as soon as I can FTP into the server.

@UnidentifiedVonFiendishThingy Could you please take a screengrab if it happens again? It doesn't sound good but I don't know what to look for unless I can see it. I'll check the site anyway for viruses, and you should do the same on your computer in case it's a local issue.

Posting has been up and down for me this morning. Let's see if this one gets through.

Forget "Calgon, take me away."

I'll go with "Magical Mystery Tour, take me away."

I got this when I tried to submit a post.

unable-to-save-please-slow-down..JPG

It started me singing

You better slow down
Baby, now you're moving way too fast
You gotta gimme little loving, gimme little loving
Brrr! If you want our love to last

I tried again, and that post went through. Guess I slowed down enough.

Ah yes. I found a 30-second limit when I was checking out admin options, so I put it in. I guess it's not needed so I'll disable it (if I can find the option). It's really to stop spammers from hitting me with automated messages.

Talking of speed, the new server is running something called LiteSpeed which is a lot faster than the old one. It cost a bit more each month but I think it's worth it. Forums are never fantastically quick to load or save comments, but this one's doing OK, and the main site is nice and fast.

And of all things, I got this Ringo song on my mp3 player as I drove home.

Step lightly
You're movin' too fast

Are The Beatles trying to send me a message?

EDIT: I was listening to my mp3 player on "all songs in alphabetical order" mode on the drive home. Taking a cue from Step Lightly, I decided to listen to all of Ringo 2012 here at home. And does anyone know what the last song on that album is...

@Joe I scanned my home computer and there are no viruses, however I am on a public computer now and I got the same popup. I can't take screenshots but if it happens at home I'll get one.

@Joe, I can't change the topic title for this thread. Perhaps it is part of the migration to the new server. I was thinking about giving it the title

Liverpool: things to do and your trip stories

Just so you know, you will have a notification from me for that combined Liverpool thread. I cut the above message (with its @) out of that post and put it here so the Liverpool thread wouldn't get derailed.

A member PM'd me to say he hasn't received any emails from the BB since the hosting company switch two weeks ago. Has anyone else quit getting BB emails?

I use Firefox also and this site is the only site I get popups on. I have got 6 popups today on the front page of the forum.

Hi. I'm taking this very seriously, but so far I've not been able to find a cause. I'm not disbelieving anyone, but as far as I can tell the site is clean (Google Webmaster Tools have found no malware, Sucuri found nothing either, and I've been searching through files for any possible infections).

Please keep posting screengrabs if any popups are launched. Also, if you do see popups please run a virus/spyware program to check your local machine.

Hey, I can't seem to view PMs, getting a notice saying I don't have permission for PMs, and am I sure I am logged in (uh, yes).  Yet I got an email saying someone sent me a PM.

However, a topic I started is awaiting moderator approval.  If the PM is tied to that topic, is that why I can't access it yet?
