An Infuriating Nuisance!

The accompanying popup constantly appears on this forum and only on this forum!
It's driving me mad....unless I press the 'leave this page' option the forum freezes and this happens each and every time I try a page change.
The 'remain on this page' option is completely un-responsive
I assume it is something to do with this website? Has anyone else experienced this nuisance?

Help!!

Not for me - although I get endless Windows 10 upgrade demands no matter pages I'm on. I've never had a 'pop-up' on this forum.

I saw this on IE. It seems OK on Chrome and Firefox.
Best regards, John

I've no solution for the IE popup as I don't use IE and haven't experienced it. However for the Windows 10 annoyance install GWX Control Panel - it'll remove it and keep it at bay and allow normal Windows updates to function as they should (bet you haven't seen any normal Windows security updates for ages?)

Agree, I've installed the options to remove the upgrade updates, having read that the official options issued by Microsoft (to avoid the Win 10 upgrade), weren't necessarily permanent.

I view this site on IE11 at Work and Home on Windows 7. Occasionally get the do you want to view all items security warning. Works well on mobile Safari apple browser.

Very often issues are around the plugin adverts, and the OPs error from websites where your responses are stored, and it picks up that you are trying to navigate away before submitting your changes. I see this on Facebook for example if you type a comment but do not submit it.

Well thank you everybody - a surprising number of responses :
The message seems very clear, I need to get rid of IE and find myself another browser.

I use Firefox too, and occasionally Edge (Windows 10 user here).

His Nibs switched to only using Edge because Firefox is getting greedy for space. He recently tried Opera again, which has been completely renewed, and he is impressed enough to keep using it.

Me? I'm too idle to move all my bookmarks and passwords and stuff over .

The solution is to move to a decent web browser such as Chrome (Firefox if you like a more leisurely pace for your browsing).

Moving to another browser is one answer, but you then have the potential for issues specific to that browser!

Browser testing across multiple browsers used to be performed by many site developers prior to release of their latest upgrades, but as this world has grown larger the testing seems to reduce
