When I am in the ficgs site, a second tab opens spontaneously in the ficgs format, and bearing some random message from the real site. The message scrolls across the page from right to left. I kill this tab and it returns after about a minute. It carries a label in the tab box "Message box 1"

Does this happen to anyone else? how do you get rid of it?

Not for me.

Are you logging in under http or https?

https is the secure server address, which might help with your issue.

Hi Philip,

That's quite strange, this windows should appear in the main FICGS window (the chat bar is below this one).

What navigator do you use (on what computer or mobile)?

Hi Thibault,

This happens on an HP Pavilion laptop, when I connect using either IE or Firefox.

There is no apparent pattern to the messages. Just now I got a line from Wikichess, a tornament start announcement, a note from you, part of a thread on Game 58473, advice that a player has just logged on. They seem to be things that have recently appeared above the chat bar.

I have no idea yet on how to solve this rare (obviously) problem :/ Did you try Garvin's suggestion to use https ?

It started recently only? So it worked on the same computer before?! Don't you have any idea of what changed at this moment on your computer? (installation of java any addon...)

Hi Thibault,

Thanks for trying to think about this.

I was just about to post that it had disappeared as mysteriously as it arrived, but as I was typing it came back!!

It must be something odd that only happens to me. Perhaps a side effect of some automatic upgrade. Who knows??
