Chrome 6.0.472.63, Win XP SP3. Trying to open a thread, page scrolls down to the bottom (sometimes). Might be ad related? Also happens on the tools page. Tools opens normally, I start entering some search text when whammo! I'm at the bottom of the page. Anyone else see this behavior?
Edit: It just happened again...Gonna try the Chrome update and see if it helps.
Edit2: It might be the Bing ad. seems to happen every time Bing types in a new search term.

Yep. pretty definately the bing ad. It fills the search box and sits there with the cursor flashing, stealing the attention.
I don't see any ads so I don't have the problem.
Same here. Although Videohelp.com, is very slow one of my older computers (an AMD K6 @ 550MHz).
I suspect there is a script doing *something*. I've got noscript installed, but left videohelp.com to "allowed".
Adblock Plus is also enabled.
When the pages load, it uses almost all the cpu for about 10 seconds. No idea what it's doing.
But as it works fine from all computers and browsers I have tried it's hard to fix...

Baldrick, thanks for the info. My PC is slow to begin with, as I mentioned it's 550MHz.
The only way I can really browse the web on it it to use NoScript, Adblock Plus and Flashblock -
With Videohelp.com, I generally experience a cpu spike of 5 - 10 seconds per page just using the forum, no matter
what page I jump to. Could be a new sub-forum, a particular post, etc,etc.
To be honest, I've got used to it on this PC. On a faster PC, it's not noticeable.
Thanks for your efforts.
