beacon.lijit.com

Everytime I click on a post I am getting redirected (invisibly) to this site before the post loads. It now takes hitting back twice to return to the previous page. Once to go back to the beacon link then again to get back to the original page.

http://beacon.lijit.com/beacon?viewId=1

Comes back as an advertising/analytics site.

WinXP/IE8

Sounds like malware on your PC.

Re: beacon.lijit.com

Hmmm... I was having a similar problem earlier, having to double click to go back to where I was. Not happening anymore, however.

I'm having this problem...one back click doesn't work...have to click twice. Sounds like IB is tracking clicks perhaps? And that beacon link IS showing up in my IE tab and the web address.

I see it too. Lijit.com seems to hold up the page loads.

Re: beacon.lijit.com

I've discovered I had the issue on my office computer, but so far haven't had any troubles on my laptop.

Re: beacon.lijit.com

It's likely a bad cookie.

CTRL-F5 to clear your browser, and let me know if that does not do the trick.

Re: beacon.lijit.com

I thought Ctrl+Shift+Delete cleared the browser. Shift+F5 is just a hard reload.
