    So when I'm on this forum now all of a sudden I get random words in various posts that show up as underlined, like a hot link. Then when I scroll over the word this stupid popup comes up, anyone know what's up? Is that on my side or do you guys see that too?

    This is what I mean, see the word money is underlined as a hotlink:

    Nah man I dont get that at all, what is "text enhance"? sounds like you've picked up a script.

    Might be an idea to clear all your cookies =)

    Yep, and check for little programs you just installed with toolbars and browser "add-on" enabled by default.

    I was using Chrome for my OP above, but I had been having troubles with Firefox and recently switched to Chrome, ran the ad on you mention and now my Firefox is back to normal. Looks like this stupid enhanced text was the issue the whole time, now both browsers are good:)

    Thanks man!

    Yeah was just my end I guys, problem is solved. I also hate this sort of stuff...When I see ads like that I look at the company names for the sole purpose of remember never to buy anything from them or deal with them for anything ever.

    Thanks man. I'll have to try it. I've never seen it here and I use chrome, but other sites all the time. I thought it was just their sites. It's bs either way.
