A tab entitled "Sociable" now keeps popping up over the left hand side of Take Five A Day.  I can close it by clicking on an arrow, but it keeps popping up.  It even disables my ability to click on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th most recent Take Five posts from the Take Five homepage.  Is this a new feature of Take Five A Day, or has my Safari somehow updated itself to include this annoying "improvement?"  Any help would be greatly appreciated….

I can't help, but I'm here to provide some solidarity. My phone has got something similar going on. I've resorted to yelling nasty things at it to make it go away. Oddly, it isn't working.

I am by no means a computer expert…

try "reset safari" from the drop down menu under safari. Then close it and relaunch. Also under that same pull down menu check "Block pop up windows" if it's not already checked. That has worked for me in the past when safari stated to go haywire.

Mike, I just saw the sociable thingy on the left side of my page too. In light letters where it says sociable sideways, there's a little arrow. If you click on that arrow the other bigger box goes away. I don't think it's a permanent fix but it might let you read the site.

It's not Safari because I'm getting it on Firefox too.

It is working under IE9. (but steals about an inch along the left side of my screen) I'll bet Met/Tiz did a WordPress 'upgrade' last night! Laugh

I think my iBook screen at home is too small to zoom out enough for it to go away.  Here at work I'm using a large Dell all-in-one and it doesn't interfere with the T5.

I have IE and it is just taking up the left most inch of the screen, still annoying though. It is working though, we are being sociable by talking about it.

I don't see the Sociable tab… I'm using Firefox 9.0.1 with the Adblock Plus plug-in.

It is annoying on my Ipad also. Does not really bother me on my laptop with firefox or IE but the screen is to small on the IPAD and it gets in the way. Keeps me from coming to this site when I am on my IPAD.

Wish it was not here.

It appears as if it has been removed.  I have the same version of Firefox and ABP as well but it was still showing up on mine yesterday.  It's not really an ad, it's a plugin so it wouldn't be blocked by ABP.
