I keep getting a scroll bar and then not as the bubbles find their way up the page, or it may be off the side of the page.

Vista, IE 8 (I think, it's a work puter).
Seminole.

I don't know why people are still using Firefox - it has become a bigger PITA than Internet Explorer, which with IE9 has finally turned into a real browser. Firefox wants to intall updates or a new version nearly every time I start it, and half the developer tools no longer work with new versions whereas IE9's developer tools can be toggled with a single keyboard click.

Anyway - I'll remove the bubbles when there is a decent volume of interesting posts on here.

On the subject of bubbles...

Last week I was unable to access a proper internet connection, so looked in at Bluemoment using my Kindle. As anyone who has used one knows, it is not the best browser / display in the world, but if it's all that's available... Anyway, on the Kindle the bubbles show up as "snakes" which leave faint trails behind. This is much more intrusive than with a normal display.

Tough, you're only a forum customer & Nick doesn't seem to give a damn . . . . :tiphat:

You're probably being misled by the fact that he doesn't give a damn about you. :tiphat:

(For the avoidance of doubt I'd like to state that I'm just joshing.)

We're using the term 'customer' a bit loosely aren't we? Beneficiary might be a more accurate description :mrgreen:

True enough, it would function far better if no-one bothered to post on here I guess. But keep working on it, you're getting there.

The posting rate is as high if not higher than normal - in spite of your whinging :mrgreen:
