      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 have IE7 and I feel safe, it hasn't given me any issues but maybe it depends on where you are located. Let us know how you do. smile

      I use FF too, although I've been considering switching to Flock.  Maybe I'll re-think that if this is what happens...

        I did not have the latest adobe version. I will let you know if this fixes the problem, thanks.

          I updated and re-opened Flock. Same problem. It should be able to move the ad down.

    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.

    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.

      earnest, Paul's right. Something you've added/downloaded is interfering with the rest.  Did you install the Yahoo toolbar?  If so, ***get rid of it***.  It's a big bully - doesn't play well with others.

    Here's mine; i have that prob too
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8.1.19) Gecko/20081201 Firefox/2.0.0.19

    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??

    I use firefox. I've got no problems viewing hub pages.

    Update -- James was able to reproduce the problem in Firefox version 2.  We're working on a fix, but those of you running version 2 might want to consider upgrading.  Firefox 3 was first release in June 2008, and it's fairly stable at this point.

      I guess earnesthub should be commended for reporting a bug which was missed by the smoke testing team smile
