Every time I attempt to load a page of the Owl Fantasy Forum, there is a brief flash of white in the internet browser window that occurs after about a second or so that the page has finished loading. Is this a glitch? Does it have to do with the browser?

I am using the latest version of Mozilla Firefox (I can't remember the official title for it) on a Mac OS X.

Much thanks

Adain

Maybe there's an issue with the latest Firefox version...

This did not start occurring until recently, and exactly when I cannot be sure because I (as much as I hate admitting it) don't come here as often as I ought to.

I get them too.
I use Firefox as well.
It's not a huge deal but it does bug me sometimes.

I thought it had something to do with the advertisements at the top, but they still show, even after clicking the x.

That's been happening to me, too. I bet it's part of a Firefox glitch; that's why people who don't use Firefox aren't getting it.

Odd...these flashes don't occur on my dad's Mac OS laptop. I am using the same version of Firefox as the one on the Mac OS X, but there are no flashes...

Perhaps it has to do with something on the Mac OS X that affects Firefox?

What computers are you using? (For those of you also suffering these flashes)
