Do you want to leave this page
« on: Sunday 10 April 16 22:58 BST (UK) »
Good evening,

For about a month now, nearly everytime I press the back button a little message box opens on screen. It says "are you sure you want to leave this page"
                                   Leave this page
                                   stay on this page

I'm starting to get really annoyed with it, it just did it when I opened up TOT only this time when I clicked on "New Topic" Of course I want to leave the page or I wouldn't have clicked on something else.

Does anyone else get this problem, it only seems to be since I changed to windows 10. Never happened before.

Yes, I've had that happen too, but not just on this site.

I thought it was a normal occurence

Not that I can help, but... Does this only happen in rootschat?

I have had it elsewhere, but not repeatedly (seldom).

I'm sure a techy person will be able to help you properly - it must be really a irritating and if it happens nearly every time you press the back button, it is certainly a problem.

Should this thread be on the Technical Help board? :-\

If you g**gle 'are you sure you want to leave this page' there's lots of info about it.

Not tech - minded so wouldn't like to advise, but at least you can get a general idea of what you can do about it  :)

Good morning,

I get it on all sites, sometimes I can click on back button several times without it happening then it suddenly does it. Other times it happens every single time I click back button.

Happens more on RC though because of the nature of reading through the threads with multiple pages.

Me too, and since about the same time.  Doesn't bother me too much, but where it suddenly appeared from I don't know  ???
