I was looking at a couple of my hubs, and trying to do a little proof reading, when the page started jumping up and down. Does this have something to do with the ads that are displayed?
It certainly is annoying. It's like you are reading a magizine and someone is trying to pull it away from you, only they keep going back and forth. What's the deal?
I should have just let this one die..you have posted lots of questions relating to how hubpages performs
The most likely culprit for your odd browser behavior is your own PC.
have you updated your browser? When is the last time you ran a spyware cleaner? do you have an up to date anti-virus?
Do you download or go to pornography sites or movie download sites?
Do you have a firewall?
In answer to your question Sunforged. I have all of what you aksed. I have Avast which is constantly working, I have a firewall, and update my browsers constantly.
I also clean my cache, cookies, temp files, and history every time I use my computer. I'm not sure about the spyware cleaner but, I do have some kind of Spyware protection, but, not that one.
Anyways, the problem went away on it's own.
I checked with my partner, and he said he was having problems with different websites too. H e figured it was just a temporary glitch in internet explorer. It hasn't happened since.
Lose Internet Explorer!
Its all about firefox and the proper menu of plug ins

*will insert later* cant find it..its been 5 minutes already, hate forum search options! its called something like "What hubs helped you the most when you were first starting out on hubpages"
Might be an idea to try cleaning your computer with reimage.com. They have a free 5 min scan you can download from their website that checks everything from spyware to missing files that might be causing your comp to run so slowly.

I published a new Hub today, and when I went to share it on my personal Facebook page as usual, all that showed up on the page was... the link. Nothing else. Usually I get that snazzy little box showing the title of the Hub and a thumbnail pic and everything. I've already tried sharing it from two...
