    What is This Popup? Solved

    Using iCab browser. At times when i tap the screen in my browser, regardless of forum, page etc, this annoying popup-like "thing" appears. It allows me to tap X to remove it. Is it preventable?

    Ah! Thanks for the update. I did not even notice you were not using Safari. Having no idea what on the forum's website could cause such a strange pop-up, I was waiting for a mod or admin to enlighten us. :)

    Glad you figured it out.

    The only thing I can think of is that you are accidentally tapping the module icon (in your bookmark bar - the puzzle piece looking one). That I know of, there is nothing in the forum software that would call up the modules in the iCab browser.

    It would occur randomly when tapping. No body part near the puzzle though that brings up an interesting marketing strategy or heck of a coincidence. Being new to the tablet/touchscreen world, I've quickly noticed how so very many linked ads are placed in a manner to invite the edge of the hands (primarily right hand) to caress the ad just enough to launch the ad. My paranoia?

    PS: Good point regarding the puzzle. Just removed it from bar.
