Problem needing fix

  1. Oct 5, 2012 #1
    Hello. Whenever I get to the first log in page at Physics Forums...by default I am at the bottom of the screen. I then have to go to the right hand side of the page and use the scroll bar to climb back to the top of the page so I can log in. Why is that? Is there something I can do? I am using Windows XP. Will physics forums be able to fix such an issue or recommend a fix for me?
    Thanks for any and all responses

    Try disabling JS and load the page again. Let me know what happens.

    Hello. Thanks for the response. Unfortunately the computer I am using at this time I believe does not allow me to 'disable' JavaScript. In a short while I am going to get to 'another' computer and see if I can do it there..so in the future I will let you know if that does the trick.

    Sorry about this question..I might simply be able to figure it out myself... but since I'm at a computer right now..how does one go about disabling JavaScript?

    What browser do you use?

    Hello. Thanks for the response. I am using a 'Brampton Library' computer.

    I believe it uses a Windows XP operating system.

    A much better computer that I use is at a 'work related computer resource center'

    No, I am asking about program that is installed on the computer and used to browse web pages. If it is on XP it is most likely Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome.

    Internet Explorer.

    It just happened when I tried to open "PF Movie Night". It was locked up long enough for me to note the message at the bottom of my screen: "Waiting for api.viglink.com..."

    It was maybe 45 seconds.

    That's a tracking service Greg uses, that's something different.
