wtf is up with that... never have i ever had that message popup via browser?

i would say there is some code you all need to work out on this board... maybe the yabbc is the cause?

Are you using the updated Firefox browser?

if yes, yeah I get that too and you can google or wiki whatever you just highlighted.
quite useful, imo.

if no, make a screenshot and post it.

That seems to be a useless security message by Microsoft's IE  :warhorse

you can turn that message off somewhere in  -> Extras -> Internetoptions...

of course you want to copy & paste something on the website  and therefore need to access the internet!
answer that popup with "allow" and tick "don't show this again"

Better yet - download Mozilla Firefox and surf with that.  :willya
it's safer, lean & fast and it gets updated in very short intervals unlike the lame ms-IE.

YOu have two option allow or not allow, if you accept you will have YOUR OWN post on the clipboard so if for any reason your post is lost you can re-post it only doing the paste, also you can save your post if it is so relevant that you want to save it in a Word document for later publication  :o

Strange feature Ronnie  :weed
