When i visit the homepage i keep getting this pop up
When visiting MR.com via Firefox on Windows 7, several dozen pop-ups appear with what appear to be Twitter information and random numbers. Have to force quit/end task to get rid of them.
Same, i also have to force quit i only got here because I went directly to the forums and bypassed the home page
I just got the same thing going to Engadget, on Windows/FF. Strange.
Looks like Twitter's taking the piss ?
Same on Firefox. Could be a bug due to the new Tweet button functionality that Twitter released?
I'm getting these Twitter popups too, on Firefox 3.6.8 but not on Safari 5.0. Had to Force-Quit my Firefox too. Tried it several times in the last few minutes. Very strange.
Me too. Very annoying, and MR should do something about it. they have been hijacked...
Same thing here. It has something to do with the new Tweet Button because it wasn't happening before they switched.
Same here with mozilla based browsers, firefox and camino??????
My guess would be someone at Twitter was doing some code debugging using the alert function to put up some information. Likely very temporary. I have Twitter blocked so I don't have any issues.
I had the same problem using Firefox, but not on Opera.
Guess the people who work at Twitter are a bunch of twits.
How do you block twitter, because their **** ruining my browsing on a bunch if sites is kind of pissing me off.
yea, its working fine on safari 4.0.4 nice job twitter....
NoScript add-on for Firefox when at home. My work firewall blocks it as well.
Safari 5.0 doesn't have the problem; just Firefox. This is ANNOYING!!!
Seems to have stopped now. I thought MR had been hacked or something.
Stupid twitter, what the hell is wrong with them?
Funny thing is I started getting those on gizmodo. While I'm not here to post feedback with regard to giz, its too much of a coincidence that the same exact type of pop started hitting them too. Odd. It didn't occur on their main page but on the linked articles.
Yes, it was an issue with the new Twitter button. Should be fixed now.
eh... no. Still happening
You get what you pay for people.. oh wait.. you don't pay **** for Twitter.
