    Yeah, it's no longer a popup. I believe this happened a few days before the database accident, so I don't think it's a setting that got reverted. Maybe it's a change in the new vB version?

    This was done because there are some popup killers out there that would kill that popup window as well, thus the change was made with vBulletin to make it a new page instead of a popup.

    Eh...I don't really mind it. Got used to middle-clicking the star to open it in a new tab now. :)

    Thats a bit weird mfg, maybe I should try and remove the alt tag, see if that helps... does it happen alot?

    As for the popup, was changed by Jelsoft -- I suspect future versions will have a nice ajax system.

    a bit weird is right - I have my theory this was caused by a maxed out up/down load on the line at the time (stupid Amule!) so i do not think it need concern you - also if anyone else reports it that could give you the first question to ask them!
