    Safari - Search advertisements.
    Using Safari, I can't seem to access the search drop-down for Mac Forums. It disappears behind the top advertisement.
    Anyone have this issue?

    I would have searched for an answer but..............

    I do remember that happening early on with the ads. It was a pitr. I use an ad free skin now, so I haven't run across the issue in a long time. Seemed it depended on the ad being displayed at that time. Will get this reported up the chain.

    Thought it was just me since no one else ever mentioned it.

    Another "Flash" issue.

    In my testing, the issue is only with the Flash ads.

    If you run across it, just hit your refresh button or try changing pages in the forum to get a jpeg ad.

    Thanks.

    I had stumbled upon that solution and found that sometimes that worked fine...just did not know why that worked.
