Hi,

Please take a screenshot and attach it to this thread so that we can review it. We will need to investigate whether or not this is an ad host problem or perhaps client side malware.

Only shows up on my I-phone connection so don't think I can get a screen shot.

Its a Ad issue. If you access the site on a iDevice of any type you are presented with an ad that goes to the bottom of the Safari browser and follows you on the scrolling up or down unless you close the ad.

Screen shot attached. Meso: if you really need the site info, I can get it for you.

They (both the ones I've pulled) seem to be ads for Bing.

"Google displays ads to kids, bing for schools"

That is the detached floating pop up that I am getting.

Walmart is another one that pops up and scrolls on mobile.

Here is the ad image URL, may help you track down what ad provider is the issue.

Will look into this again, my coworker did forward a request to the ad hosts earlier this week regarding the mobile popups - will touch base and see what is happening on that front.

Also noticed it this time... I have forwarded an e-mail to those in charge with getting it removed. We'll work on getting them gone ASAP.

It stays with the scroll on a computer also... so, my venture is that it was designed that way.

Pretty sure it is.

However on mobile devices it could be annoying. Would be an easy fix but not sure if they have bigger fish to fry.

Well, on the phone it covers things you want to read and/or click on. And a fair amount (probably increasing) of use of this site is via phone these days. So it is a functionality issue.

This is something we worked on before and fixed for the phones we tested with. I will take another look at this, but we implemented a media-query that hid the social media toolbar if the screen was a mobile browser width.

Can you let me know what browser the phone uses? And what model phone it is. This may help in getting it resolved.

Might also help to get the useragent that the browser is presenting. (though I'm not sure you guys filter by agent, it would probably work)
