    For the last 2 days the search box which is normally at the top of each page is now moving down the pages with me as I scroll down. It's blocking my view of posts.
    It's only happening on my laptop, my phone is ok. I've taken photos using my phone so include them in next post down.
    Any ideas how I can resolve the problem? Thanks.

    Look at where the search box is and how it obscures the post I'm reading.:confused:

    It seems more likely to be an issue with your connection ( browser) than the website, what are you using ?

    On another forum I contribute to we sometimes have "technical" issues - the first advice given is always to clear all cookies. Quite often this is all that is needed to restore normal service.
    Worth a try ?

    My ad blocker is permanently on and has been, long before I joined PF. Never had a problem like this with any other programs/apps.

    Just chatting to my husband about this.
    He asks are you using Google Chrome and 'sticky keys' ?

    I use Google Chrome but never knowingly use sticky keys, mainly because I don't know what they are used for.
    However, Misty has a habit of walking across my keyboard, so.........

    Just spotted this sorry :oops:
    Only thing I would say is to delete cookies and properly refresh your cache.
    It looks like there is a frame loading issue.

    Thank you. I'd already done as you mention but it made no difference. It's sorted now, hopefully as I reinstalled google and so far it's been ok. :Happy
