    It doesn't happen to me all the time, but i've been noticing that tonight on some of the threads I go to all of the links turn white, what could be causing this? Anyone else getting it?

    I've experienced this as well. In fact, I just scrolled down to the feedback section to see if there was already a thread about this.

    I'm having this problem too.

    To me, it seems like it's a JavaScript error because the page loads with the links their normal colors, then they all go white. But I could be wrong. :)

    I have seen it intermittently for the past hour or so. I can't figure out a pattern, though.

    White Links Error?

    Since I logged on about 10 minutes ago, every thread page that I view has all of the links white which makes them nearly invisible, and difficult to read in some instances, is anybody else having this problem? I'll upload a screenshot in a minute.

    It's getting worse, note the big white box the blocks the "REPLY" button in the bottom left corner.

    Happening to me too, using Safari 4 as well as Firefox 3.5 RC2, both on OSX 10.5.

    Looks like it's the Verizon ad Arn:

    Oh lol, I didn't see that you posted a link Arn. And Ford Fusion (didn't get a pic tho).

    I got a pic of the problem with Fujitsu's ScanSnap ad, but I can't find the reply button due to this link problem... Sam Stores is currently the ad, and is making the problem.

    I actually now think it has nothing to do with the ads themselves but some bad Javascript. On those white-outed pages there are as many 23 errors in Javascript.

    I think its both, because I blocked the (FIVE) ads and now the white links no longer appear.

    This has been happening to me too. I don't know what to look for in the code, but I'll take screen shots and post them here.

    Anyone have any ideas for a solution? Things are fine in Firefox.

    can you guys do me a favor and quit/restart your browser and also turn back any changes you made... and let me know if the problem persists?

    I made some changes.
