Yes-there really is a "Pop up Box".

"You have received one or more messages-would you like to read them now or later" or something like that. ;)

Yes, I get that as well, Maureen - in the middle of the screen. On the iPad it gives me the option to open up Personal Messages in a new tab, which is handy as I don't lose where I am on RC. On the laptop it opens in the same tab.

"You have received one or more new personal messages.
Would you like to open a new window to view them?"

Are we just talking about notification of new Private Messages rather than notification about answers to posts?

Yes, Jan - the same box we discussed way back in September. Trystan sorted it out for us on the 20 th October but it suddenly disappeared again a few days ago.

Perhaps someone could send me a few xxxx or hugs by pm and will see if it works today  ;D  lol  ;D

Barring videos that automatically play, what could be more annoying than a pop up?  All a matter of taste, I guess.
