What is this "Top Selling Discs on Amazon" stuff?

All of a sudden this box at the very right appears when it was never there before and it distorts the whole screen using the scroll left and right on the bottom instead of fitting in one page.

Is this new and staying around?

Yeah, it seems to only affect some people (I talked to GizmoDVD and it doesn't affect his either).

Edit: BTW, I just checked using Firefox, and the scroll is on there as well... Maybe it's the computer monitor resolution? I have mine set to 1024 x 768.

It screws up your screen if you've got a low resolution. Bad move. Just another way for IB to make some more $

couldn't even be bothered to set it up on dvdtalk! they stole code from one of their other sites instead!

Might I suggest for those who don't block ads to add the host mention above to your hosts file to block it...

yet another way to interfere with the dvdtalk user experience. it is quite a jarring change.

I think it has to do with the resolution, as I did not even realize it was there until I saw this thread! I'm set at 1920 x 1200 and everything is fine but if I change it to 1024 x 768 then I get the scroll.

They need to take in to consideration that not everybody uses a wide-screen monitor.

That's what I figured, but I'm not going to change it just for this forum since others don't have this problem.

It's affecting my screen. I'm not liking it. Also don't like that I have to keep "doing things" here to keep from getting frustrated about all the "wonderful new enhancements and features".

Same here.

My biggest problem is its unappealing look with all the hyperlinks, bolding, underlining, slashed out prices, font size changes, and color changes. It just looks like a big, ugly, clusterfuck at the top of my screen.

I didn't even notice it and just looked now. I guess I don't look at the top info other then a few of the latest reviews that pop up.

No problems here, but i'm at 1440x900. I'm surprised people still have screens running 1024x768 Those are what, 15" LCD's or 17" CRT's? Yikes

I'm at work...I'm using a 14 year old desktop PC that shuts itself off every 64 minutes thanks to some "buldging capacitors" that they chose not to get fixed. My keyboard is yellowed from cigarette smoke from the mid 1980's and only one of the 8 USB ports (that some guy randomly installed the side of the tower) works. I sware if I licked the inside of my keyboard I would taste "The New Coke" from 1985 that someone spilled inside of it.

I crave a widescreen monitor here...crave.

I have the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of my screen but I honestly didn't even notice until I read this thread. I never look at the top of the page and the horizontal scroll hasn't affected my reading of the forums at all.

Hm.

It's showing up for me (using a 3:4 monitor at 800x600); getting a scrollbar at the bottom of the window but it's not effecting my layout at all. If it weren't for this thread, I probably wouldn't have noticed it for a several months!

Same res here. Didn't change my experience. Top of the page looks off-kilter but I don't have to scroll.
