    This only happens when I visit one website, but it happens every time.

    When I go to www.indystar.com I will typically see the home page. When I click on a story I want to read it loads into a white screen. Then, I will hit the back button to go back to the home page and it will also load white.

    I found a couple of older threads talking about it, most of which concluded "wait for Lion to come out, it'll be fixed then". I'm really not interested in upgrading, surely not fix this bug.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    What browser and version are you using?
    What ad-blockers do you have installed?
    What extensions/plug-ins are installed?

    I just tested the site and it doesn't do that to me on Safari.

    Good questions, I'll answer them the best I can. I am relatively new to Mac, so please be patient.

    Safari version 5.1.2
    No additional ad blockers installed, just have "Block Pop Up Windows" checked
    No extensions installed and I don't see any Plug Ins pertaining to Safari

    Do you suggest an addition AdBlocker?

    Yes, I always use one or more ad-blockers. Also, selecting "Block Pop-Up Windows" isn't 100% effective.

    Well, there you have it. I installed AdBlock and the site works like perfectly now.

    Thanks for your help!
