I just went to look at a translator\'s profile...

and up popped an ad. No other windows open, so it had to come from proZ.

I have to say I\'m a bit surprised. Guess it\'s back to using popup killer.

Not happening to me...but I get something else Jul 18, 2002

Hi Rick,



I just tried looking at your profil as well as mine, and I did not get any pop-up ads (no other browser windows open either).



However, I do get from time to time when I view some pages on Proz, a very annoying \"dialogue box\" asking me where I want to *save* a file (as if I was downloading something).... which I cancel out.



I find this rather annoying and it only happens on Proz website.



Does anyone else get this?



Nathalie

I never had popup ads through ProZ (BTW what was the ad for?). Neither have I had any prompts to save or execute, although that might be related to your browser\'s safety settings (check the cookie settings, I guess).

Cookies? Jul 18, 2002

Hi,



I have never seen ads popping up or new windows opening on ProZ, but due to my settings, windows for cookies (accept or do not accept) are popping up, while reading some members\' profiles, generated IMO from their counters.

That's probably it... Jul 18, 2002

I hadn\'t really thought about the counters people are placing in their profiles, but that\'s probably it, since they\'re coming from somewhere outside of proZ.

Maybe we could enlist Jason to write a little counter script within proZ so noone has to go elsewhere for it.

Pretty please?
