    If you're in a subforum of the Mac Forums- In this case Mac Forums>Mac Community>Site and Forum Feedback, and you click on Mac Forums, does it click on the image above it (The Macrumors:Forums logo)?

    It's like the image is stretched down.

    It happens until the end of Mac Community, in this case.

    In the iPhone forums, it goes down to iPhone and iPod Touch Forums.

    What browser and version are you using? I'm on Firefox 3.0.10 and not noticing this.

    I have Firefox, and it only happens on this laptop (XP).

    It also only happens when I'm logged on.

    I have Firefox updated all the way. It's Windows XP.

    Try starting Firefox in safe mode, which will disable your add-ons and such to see if one of them may be the culprit.

    Yeah, I guess one of them does it. But it didn't use to do this ever, now it does it. It started to do it the day I posted that.

    Same problem here! No idea which addon is the culprit - disabling them fixes it.

    Macrumors Logo

    Previously I used to be able to click on the macrumors logo (on the top lefthand side of the page) and it would take me to the main forum index. It's no longer clickable. Are there any plans to change this back?

    It should be clickable now. If you're using any kind of "content filtering" mechanism, that may have messed up the iframes and the clickable region maybe in the wrong place ... look to see if it's directly below the logo, approx. below "User CP" and above "Mac Forums." If it's there, this is being caused by your content filtering tool....

    That's how it is with me. I run Content Barrier and the clickable hot zone is above the logo area. I never noticed until I read this. I just hit the forums tab. No linking issues anywhere else on the site.

    Logo DIV too low...

    Not sure why this is happening but...

    The div that is supposed to float over the MacRumors:Forums logo is too low. For me, when I mouse over the logo, my cursor stays at default, but if I move about 100 pixels down, it changes to the hand and if I click, it takes me to the Forum index. The exact same problem appears on the MacRumors homepage.

    The main problem seems to be the CSS:

    #logotarget {
    position: absolute;
    top: 102px;
    left: 5px;
    }

    It looks like top should be 2px or something similar.

    Or is it just my browser (Firefox 3 w/ AdBlock)?

    Yes, I just tried IE and it looks fine. It must be since that top ad is blocked. Is there anyway to change the logo target so it's not positioned absolutely?

    Oops. Looks like I should've searched before I posted as well. Yes, as the people in the other thread said, it's your adblocker, whether AdBlock or some other plug in. However, I think the website should be fluid enough to work around it...

    Macrumors:Forums top left corner link

    I'm not sure if this is on my comp only but this is what happens when I try to click the hyperlinks on the forum tree. I believe this link is for the top logo on the forum.

    any suggestions? :X

    Annoying thing when clicking on parent thread

    when say in 'iPhone' forum and i want to go back to 'iPhone & iPod Touch Forums' and i click on it, a weird box comes up, as if the whole area is one big link, and i go back to the main forum page. is this a bug with my browser or with the site?

    Exactly! I had the same issue in Firefox, but not in Safari. You should submit this to a mod and ask them how to fix it

    This has been happening to me a lot lately in FF too. Unless you click directly on the link back to the sub-forum, it takes you to the main one instantly. I don't have any kind of ad-blocking software or anything, either.

    Firefox 3.5 Issue

    Okay, I have to specify that this is on PC (Windows 7) but I'm hoping it gets an answer of some sort. I'm noticing that the breadcrumb link trail does not work correctly.

    Example:

    Mac Forums > Mac Community > Site and Forum Feedback

    This is the current breadcrumb trail of links as I see it right now. If I were to click on the "Mac Community" link, the entire set of links (all three) get clicked (dotted box around most) and I'm redirected to the forum root index instead.

    Any ideas or other reports on this issue?
