    Hi,

    noticed over the last few weeks that when I log into this site the page flashes quickly 3 or 4 times , then I'm logged in, it does happen on other sites too, occasionally but not all the time , running a up to dat MB 10.5.7 with all available updates.
    weird thing is it doesn't happen everytime, quite sporadic , I cant seem to replicate it


    just curious as to what this flashing is and why it's happening .

    any ideas ?

    What browser (and version) are you using? Firefox will drop a menu bar asking if you want to save login information. This can cause a flashing or flickering effect.

    Hi ,thanks for replying .

    I am using firefox 3 which is up to date , login info was saved a while ago for this site so I don't believe that to be the problem but am not certain.

    I've never actually had the problem you mentioned It seems fine for the ff drop down for remembering passwords, odd thing is it can happen on pages when I'm not even logging in on a site , just general browsing, even just things like having a look at forum spy ...just general browsing ..

    thanks
