Has anyone seen the pop-up message in the attached photo come up when browsing the forum

It came up today seemingly randomly when I was browsing, and when i clicked cancel cos i wasn't sure what it was, it gave me a 401 unauthorised error.

I have checked my system for both malware and spyware, and also run a browser clean, and the problem seems to have gone away....but is there something weird happening, or is it just a feature of the forum that I am not aware of

cheers

apparently, if you have posted a link somewhere with a \ in it, instead of /, it carries on.

If you have some broken links / file is missing on your account - some pages .html, maybe to some images, maybe to some .css files, maybe to .js - you're redirected to the 404 error page.

All i can find so far....have you perhaps mis-typed a link somewhere? Apparently only happens with Firefox too...

When the need for new moderators comes around, current moderators usually suggest suitable members, and then that member gets asked if they want to.
