    Why does your web page insist on putting itself “up front”? I open a number of tabs in the morning and lately, have been in the process of opening up other tabs for reading my morning news after reading the comics when suddenly, PCWeenies is the active tab and the one I was clicking on was gone. This is really annoying. How do I turn it off? In addition, how do I turn off the pop-up that asks me to subscribe???

    GJB – that’s odd. There’s nothing on my end that should be causing that to happen. Which browser / OS are you testing it with? I have not been able to replicate the behavior you’ve mentioned in Firefox, Safari and even Chrome on Mac and Windows.

    Do you have private browsing set up? If so, you will see the pop-up. If you have cookies on, I have a setting that suppresses the pop-up for a total of 4 days. I’ve bumped that up to 14 days. Let me know if you still run into any issues. Thanks for letting me know about the problems. I’ll do my best to solve them. Input always appreciated.

    Yes, running older version of Safari (v5.1.10) on 10.6.8 (I still use a couple of PowerPC apps so cannot upgrade.)

    And yes, I am running in private browsing mode. I load my local paper during the same time and they want me to log in, and I don’t want them tracking the articles I read, so private browsing is a necessity. If I don’t log in, they limit me to five articles a month. So turning off Private browsing is not going to happen.

    As to using Chrome, I’ve gotten into the habit of using several key command on Safari that do not exist in Chrome and it frustrates me to no end that things do not work the way I expect them to.

    And Firefox is just broken on the laptop I use for this. I’ve uninstalled it completely and reinstalled it, but it still doesn’t render pages correctly. In fact, PCWeenies comes up with the comic as a broken pic link. Do not know what to do about that.

      Hmmm, hopefully someone else reading this can chime in. At a loss for what to suggest.

Tell me what you think!
