Is there a problem with the form server?
Starting about mid-February, something in the forum display would cause my Internet Explorer v 9.0.14 browser to drop into compatibilty view
In the process, it would refresh the forum page I was viewing or typing into, and set me as an un-logged-on user (with all the crud that fills the screen when you aren't logged in). So, I'd have to log in again, and if messaging or typing a forum response, start that completely over.
The error box reads: A problem displaying forestriverforums.com caused Internet Explorer to refresh the web page using Compatibility View.
Sometimes this happens infrequently, sometimes over and over a minute or two apart. Does not appear to be time related, or no response for a while related.
I'm guessing it has something to do with the ad stuff. You can sense something is happening in background as each forum page refreshes when logged on, and especially when not.
Either my virus or Explorer software is reacting to something on the page or in background code. It's only happening on the FRF web pages. I figure I'll have to put up with it since I stick to IE for security reasons and I like this forum.
Here's the screen display when it suddenly happens:
