    I just started having the issue myself while I disabled Adblock Plus on this site. (It didn't happen until I refreshed the page) I enabled the extension again and no more problems. It is one of the ads causing this. I will keep watch on this thread for the error to be fixed then I will disable the AdBlock Plus again.

    Flash is very unstable on Chrome, and most other browsers. Unfortunately we can never track down rogue ads that are causing issues, because there are just so many of them.

    It will likely resolve itself once the particular ad goes out of circulation. And of course Flash will soon be gone, as the major browsers are going to stop supporting it.

    Disable the flash plugins in your browser and see if that helps. Maybe it won't nag about needing it if disabled

    Chrome states it is the latest version.

    Is that something you do in "settings" or another menu?

    To disable Flash in Chrome, type chrome://plugins in the address bar. Then click Disable by Adobe Flash Player.

    I just upgraded as I did not realize I was running an older version. I'm now on Chrome version 52.0.2743.82 m

    I'll try running the page periodically today and see what happens. I just went into the same thread I was experiencing problems with and it does seem much smoother now. Maybe that was the trick, I'll watch it today and get you an update.

    Thanks.

    And also try disabling Flash at some point and see how that impacts things.

    Helped me...I thought it was something on my end with my computer or online connection. But just an fyi that I did have the latest Chrome version when this was all going on. So the instructions on how to disable flash may end up really helpful for both of us at some point. (Although I haven't disabled yet and everything has been very smooth today.)

    Unfortunately we can't fix it, because it is really an issue between Flash and Chrome.

    One option would be to upgrade to a Premium Member, which removes all advertising - http://forums.wdwmagic.com/account/upgrades

    Second would be to switch to a different browser.

    Third would be to wait for Chrome to stop allowing Flash, which won't be long. http://www.pcworld.com/article/3106...-plan-to-kill-flash-kicks-into-high-gear.html

    One way to improve the jerkyness is to put certain people on ignore. I did it to @wdwmagic since he's always electronically strutting around like he owns the place.

    Glad I found this! Here I thought it was my computer! But when I try and reply to things on my iPhone, it skips all around and the blue bar with the fonts and colors always covers where I'm typing... maybe it's because I'm on the app?

    Use Safari on iPhone and you won't have any issues.

    Was going to start a new thread but I saw this one is similar to my current issue.

    Since about Thursday evening, I've been having trouble navigating the entire site. Whenever I click to open a thread or to go to the next page of a thread, I get redirected to the main forum page. If I'm able to make it into the thread itself, the page usually goes blank and I have to refresh a few times. I disabled flash months ago and I'm not tech savvy so I'm not sure what other things to disable. I also have to hit "post" a few times too before and comments will be pushed through. I'm currently on my desktop using Chrome on Windows 10. The issues also started recently on my mobile too, which used to be fine. Thanks as always for any suggestions.

    Was driving me CRAZY for months. I also disabled flash - didn't help. I have two words for you: AdBlock. Look it up online. I downloaded it and it's been heaven ever since. But please know I'm not a computer expert - so please look at some reviews online to make sure it's established and safe before you download. I did a little research and it seemed safe and used by a lot of people. I know it fixed the problem for me.

    AdBlock didn't do a thing. I'm still getting java script error messages left and right. Its not just on my desktop but phone and iPad. I don't even know what java scripts, so I'm really getting aggravated. :hilarious:

    Sorry that didn't work...it made such a huge diff for me ever since installing it. But frankly, all the other people's suggested fixes did nothing for me either when I was trying them, so definitely feel your pain! Seems like there's some major structural/programming problems in the past year on this board and the other main one. The impact is affecting people differently, so I guess there's not one tidy fix for everyone. So frustrating. I hope you find a remedy soon.
