When using Flock An adobe flash ad is placed over the top of all avatars on all hubpages including my own. Can someone help?
sorry earnestshub I cant help. All I can say is that everything is working fine on my system . Which is Firefox.
Have you tried using another Browser?
Yes I have no problem with firefox or IE7, but I love Flock, all the features you know how it is, I'm lousy at staying signed on everywhere and Flock does a great job of that. IE7 is just plain unsafe these days. Firefox is a good platform so if I can"t fix it I will still survive!
I use FF too, although I've been considering switching to Flock. Maybe I'll re-think that if this is what happens...
I have a friend who's a hubber and uses Flock, and she's never mentioned experiencing what you describe. Maybe you should completely uninstall Adobe and run the computer without it for a couple of sessions to see if the ads go back to where they're supposed to be. If so, then Adobe is the problem.
Nice one JamaGenee, you are not just a pretty avatar, smart idea. I will try it.
In defense of flock - its just firefox with some preset add ons.
Whatever the issue is its not unique to Flock, but may be a side effect of add-ons/plug-ins you may have installed?
We are looking into this issue, but so far we haven't been able to reproduce it. If those of you that are experiencing this could select "help" -> "about" in your browser and cut and paste the "user agent" string (which looks something like this):
It may help us track this down. I suspect it isn't just the browser but some interaction between the browser and a plugin or flash, etc.
Here's mine; i have that prob too
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20081201 Firefox/18.104.22.168
earnest, just thought I'd add I'm not an IT whiz - only many years experience having to figure out how co-workers got to the "North Forty" as I call it - meaning they did something to make a computer go screwy and had no idea what. Last thing in, first thing out is the place I'd start. Careful questioning to find out what they did after the last point the computer worked fine.
So what did YOU do *after* the last time Flock was doing what it should??
Hi earnestshub/C. C. Riter - we recently fixed the bug. Can you please check again to see if you're still facing the same problem?
I guess earnesthub should be commended for reporting a bug which was missed by the smoke testing team
Thanks..it's been fixed!I dont have that problem now!Thanks!

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?

This might be a little odd, but maybe a feature that would allow us to be able to go back to the old way of uploading pictures would be to send it to the original HubPages (back a month ago)before the new features were added.I still can't upload new photos, it makes it difficult to write...
