Not really a bug per say, but annoying as all can be nevertheless.

Takes a moment or so to populate so what ends up happening is that the page shifts just as I'm clicking on a link which either causes an incorrect selection or has me attempting to select  white space.

Yup, same thing here - when I click on a topic in the forums, if I don't wait long enough for that bar, I ultimately end up with the wrong thread showing up, even though I clicked on the one that I wanted.

A similar thing is happening with the "share this" icons, just not as much of a shift.

edit: I'm not a web page designer, but I suspect the solution is to build that height into the basic page prior to the elements loading.

Should kill both, at least on the desktop.

I've been fighting the urge to create  my own thread about this. So you have my support sir. Super annoying.

Would love if they restricted it to not the forums, or just never do this kind of thing.

Personally, I don't have issue(s) with the fact that these elements are there, I expect to see such things on a commercial website. My complaint is strictly with the fact that the page shifts when they finally populate.

Same here. I don't care about the ad, but that is really annoying.

I'm curious why AdBlocker only stops it 'some' of the time.

I'd argue that it's not really an ad since it's on a retail website. :)

This is what's happening on the main page because of the top ad "shift"....

Attempting to select  the forums link ends up in the search box which in turn brings up those popular search phrases that cover up the forums link and can't be dismissed by anything less than doing an empty search.

I just "block element" 'ed the top bar ad with ublock origin in FIrefox and it hasn't re-appeared since. Three clicks, done.

Ended up doing this.

It's a pity that poor coding forces us to use third party tools that end up negating what should be legitimate elements of a retail website.

I use APB but generally white list websites I frequent often. Issues like this remove that option.

Thanks for the tip!

Yeah, I learned a long time ago that things get fixed slowly or never so its best to just be pro-active. Some things haven't been fixed in years despite being reported (Like the forum topic on edit)

Another option would be use greasemonkey. Could keep ads but remove the elements.

I like the idea of the bar, if there is a big sale, or new item ect, that is great to let us know, but in it's current state it is extremely annoying when your screen moves down moves after it loads, and is driving me nuts!
Perhaps a good compromise would be if you click the X to close the top bar, that it STAYS closed, and NOT reappear until you log back in the site??

Oh and the blue chat box is annoying too...

Any plans on making this bar disappear for the rest of your login after dismissing it with the X. It keeps coming back and is driving me nuts now....
