Message Toolbar

What is with this message toolbar to read my messages? I hate toolbars. I hate downloads worse that try to cram junk onto my computer. After downloading it and refusing the junk, it appeared that is was still going to install some garbage so I deleted it. If that is what it takes I guess I wont be reading private messages

I honestly don't have any idea- there is an app for folks with smart phones/tablets. But that is the only download that I know of.

Are you able to take and post or email a screen shot?

Not real sure what he's talking about either.
Unless he's using an apple product.

I'm on my iPhone now- but I don't have a Mac computer. Doubt that there is any kind of app for it.

That said- if you are on a phone or tablet and access the website, you'll likely see a bar across the top for the FRF App or Tapatalk. It has always been there in some variation (either a pop-up box before or ribbon across the top now).

Need more info. Screenshot would be perfect.

His rant is regarding thinly veiled attempts by "free" downloads (like Adobe Reader) that have a pre-checked box to OK installation and hijacking of a Microsoft feature (like Explorer) or installing a toolbar (like ASK or Google).

Lou, I wondered about that too- has nothing to do with FRF. I was also thinking some kind of malware. Hoping for a screenshot.

Sometimes I have an Ad at the top of the FR website that says "YOU HAVE 1 PRIVATE MESSAGE" but when you click on it the spam starts. I suspected thats what Prius saw.

The OP mentions "cram junk onto my computer".
If he's on a PC using a normal browser like Firefox or MSIE he needs to get an ad blocker and be done with it.

Brian 2503s, that is what I am talking about. I thought is was something new from FR that I needed to read my messages. I have a new computer and am still configuring everything. Current browser is IE. Havn't used it in a while.
