Why do pages jump around???

Why do the pages jump back a page or two on BF 50+ when your finger might touch the screen on an iPad? It seems to happen a lot on the photo page. Iím not hitting the back button. My finger might inadvertently touch a picture and the thread jumps back at least one page. It happens a lot and is aggravating. Is it just me?

It happens to me too. I think it has to do with the way the photos load.

I haven't notice that; perhaps it's an iPad thing?

What does annoy me is how when I use "Page Up," the Bike Forums banner drops down and covers some of the page text, and when I try to scroll down, the banner keeps scrolling down as well so I can't see what's under the dang banner without repeatedly scrolling down.

What's the purpose of that?

Because photos are loading as your looking. That changes the size and formatting of the page.

Be patient and wait or get a PC?

I'm guessing that you have just visited the forum/thread for the first time and do not have a cached version to rebuild the page. Also I've seen this before on vBulletin sites, if not others, it's just the way your page loads.

My PCs have 4-8GB of RAM now, regardless of operating system, which you haven't mentioned and it could matter. I use Windows 7, 10 and Linux Mint 19.2 with Firefox 66.0.2 or whatever Mint has at the moment (FF is configured for Linux Mint by the distro). I would expect mobile devices to load differently due to their OS and small screen sizes as well as which display version of the vB format you are using (hint: try changing it and see what happens).

Note that threads that are heavy on images will take longer to load, cached or not.
