Thread: Downloads

  1. #1

    Downloads

    While on the forums, chrome gave me a warning that the site was pushing too many downloads, or something similar, asking if I would allow them. I didn't, but it had already downloaded this file called hbpix.

    Sounded suspicious.

    I've never seen anything like that. Do you have a screenshot?

    No, only happened this one time...

    Actually, now there is a symbol in the right hand side of the address bar, an arrow pointing down with a red X, when I mouse over it, it says "this site tried to download many files automatically" (rough translation)

    You know I've been saying it too... something on MMO-C makes my browser freeze up.

    I don't want to admit to reading MMO-C at work but... our network administrator has approached me and said he gets a lot of bandwith movement when I'm on MMO-C.

    Hmm, odd. Are you blocking adds? Our system at work shows this as a minimal site for us (then again, we run with a 400/900 connection), nor have I seen any downloads started, or cancelled from here.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    The URL from your download history would be helpful.

  10. #10
    Nothing from yesterday shows up in my download history... I guess since it aborted the download, it didn't register?

    The file that did get downloaded also doesn't show there... it was a 1 kb file named hbpix, with no extension that I could see. I deleted it, though.

    It isn't happening anymore today.

    i get that too, i feel like mmo lets to many ads on without control o.o Or has very messed up html code

    It sounds like a misconfigured ad. Hopefully it is gone now. If it pops up again get me the URL and I'll do what I can to stop it!

    i bet thats it, it comes and goes for me, usually hangs around for 1-3 weeks then is gone.

    I also got this. It's restricted to the front page.

    It's the same url.

    For those using Firefox may I suggest adding NoScript addon to Firefox. It stops the execution of script unless allowed and though it will require some attention every webpage you go to it will definitely make browsing safer. Its esp good for wowhead etc.

    Hope this helps.
