    Menu bar is being hidden by popup ads

    This newbie needs a little help. Popup ads are obscuring the menu bar. Is there any way of stopping this? I can't log out.

    Welcome to the forum, ColinaL.

    I'm afraid my knowledge of the systems is non-existent, but one of the experts will be around before too long to help you out.

    I apologise for the trouble. I have alerted the webmaster to this. What device and browser are you using? I haven't seen this.

    Re: Menu bar is being hidden by popup ads

    Thank you 5jj and Tdol. At the moment I'm using IE11, but before I was logged in with Firefox (Windows 7). The ads seem to have slipped down from where they normally are and cover half the menu bar along the top. This only happens after I log in. I have taken a screenshot if you would like me to send it to you.

    Do you discourage using an advertisement blocker on browsers?

    No, I don't have any blockers. I can usually just tune out from ads. But these are actually blocking my log in and log off as well as half the menu bar. When I'm not logged in, the ads are where they ought to be, which is in the space above the menu bar.

    I mean blocking advertisements may solve your problem, but this forum may discourage doing so because ads are the source of incomes.

    Re: Menu bar is being hidden by popup ads

    Many thanks Matthew. I'm not quite sure what I did, when I altered my settings, but the ads are now in the right place. On the other hand, perhaps thanks are also due to a hidden techie here?

    Glad it's working properly now. I will ask the hidden techie what/whether he changed.

    Re: Menu bar is being hidden by popup ads

    The same is happening to me when I use Explorer (usually at my parents's home), but not when I use Chrome (usually at home). So I guess that's a clue.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
