Blasted adverts

Seem to have changed and now make the screen jump up and down all the time… (iPad).It started last week.

I don’t mind ads as they pay for the site, but when they make the site unreadable, … I M forced to stop reading.

Can someone in the engine room have a look?

Try a reset of the iPad by pressing and holding the power and home buttons. Hold the buttons until the screen goes black & continue to hold them until you see the Apple logo. It will take a couple of minutes before the iPad is operational again.

The same phenomenon on a Windows-7 PC with Google Chrome.

This flickering video could be an issue with Chrome’s hardware acceleration and the PC’s CPU.

You can try to resolve this issue as follows:

  • Open Settings in Chrome.
  • Click “Advanced” at the bottom of the page.
  • Under System, toggle “use hardware acceleration when available” OFF.
  • Restart Chrome.


Thanks, that did not help.

As @tomahawk wrote “…and now make the screen jump up and down all the time…”, it is not a flickering video.

The forum itself does not show any problems; it is gCaptain’s homepage and the news.

The “jumping up and down” of gCaptains’s homepage and the news pages does not exist anymore.

When opening any page, the text still immediately jumps down about a tenth of the screen’s height, that’s all; scrolling for reading the text produces no continuing “jumps”.
This may have the same origin as the wild jumps, but it is irrelevant.


Indeed it has been sorted out.
Mant thanks.
