Those who have seen it can't address it. Those who can address it haven't had a chance to respond.

Thanks for your patience.

Apparently you haven't looked at the other thread linked in this discussion. I cannot reproduce it in Edge. So, if I can't see why/how it's happening, and no other browsers are having the problem, it's most certainly a bug with the Edge browser on some Windows installations, but not all.

This is an Edge issue...it occurs on all installations, not just some...

And while you can't reproduce it; it does in fact have a logical path...follow that.

ETA: I should prolly point out that this exception only occurs on ATS, which indicates there is something in the unique JavaScript here that is exposing Microsoft's error...

This is Skeptic using my testing account, on Windows 10 with Edge, and all the latest updates. I'm not experiencing the problem.

I changed the order in which the BBcode helpers appear. Let me know if a different input window appears.

Making a post with Edge.

EDIT: Having made the post with Edge, after trying to edit I get this result:



The pop up is not a happy bunny, and refuses to go away unless something is manually typed into the text box.

Jut another hint for people using windows 10 from a windows 7 upgrade: The save print screen option is now Windows key+print screen, NOT ctrl+print screen.

I know...it appears to be intermittent...

I'm a Microsoft developer, so I necessarily have what ever the latest is. (kind of a requirement)

Anyway, it is intermittent...which only makes things harder...

I read that you made some changes in helper order...I haven't seen the "error" this session...so far...

The error seems to appear during the first time edit function on ATS. Try that and you should see the error. My guess is that once the edit function has been used, then the problem may occur again if ATS is loaded in Edge even without the edit function being used again.

I see this text dialog popup constantly on Windows 10 Edge browser. I'm also a Windows Insider, and can tell you it only gets worse on the latest Windows build. In the latest build that popup gets automatically dismissed twice (by the system) and then returns an error page "This page is having a problem loading" which makes it impossible to actually view forums.

Whatever is causing this, in my experience so far has been limited to ATS. I'd be happy to help with testing a solution. The problem needs to be fixed soon. I think Microsoft plans to release this to the public in the next month or so....

I don't have this problem on my work computer, only my home computer (and both are running that despicable Windows 10).

On my home computer, I don't get it when I click on "New" but get it every time I click on "my ATS" and after posting in a thread. It's not the end of the world but I have to admit it's a bit annoying.

I have windows 10 but use chrome. I have been having this problem for several weeks. I manage to deal with it but it is a pain.

I've had Windows 10 on this PC since they first started actually releasing the upgrade, and have used both Chrome and Firefox with ATS, and have never seen this problem.

Not saying it's not there, just that I've yet to see it.

For all I know it could be resolved by going into settings somewhere and checking or un-checking a box.

In my experience this issue is limited to Edge browser on Windows 10. If I use Chrome or Firefox, I do not see the issue. It is a pretty big problem for Edge though-- like I said, in the latest build, I can't even browse through the forums due to this text field popup.

I've just used Edge for the first time and it happened with me too. Pressing cancel didn't stop it from popping back up again and it needed to be closed about eight times before it'd go. Then a different version popped up


You're not alone

I was getting the same error - it finally went away on it's own a few days ago.

Strange error - I would LOVE an entire thread dedicated to strange computer errors - so I could get feedback on whether they are standard errors or something actually strange.

For example, I work using Excel and sometimes I would get a message that my autosave was being disabled and then I couldn't save the file. I really tried not being paranoid about it but it drove me crazy.

This is a Windows 10 / Edge browser issue, and as mentioned before it is about to get worse with the latest Windows Anniversary Update releasing Aug 2. The popup states "Abovetopsecret.com needs some info from you... Please enter the text that should be quoted as external content".

After doing a little testing, here's what I found:

This portion of ATS53.js for "function external()". Line 225 specifically contains the text in the popup message; "Please enter the text that should be quoted as external content".



function external() [
if (helpmode) [
'External Content TagnIdentifies the enlosed text as being content external to ATS.nUsage:');
] else if (advmode) [
AddTxt='[ ex ] [ / ex]';
AddText(AddTxt);
] else [
txt=prompt('Please enter the text that should be quoted as external content.','Text');
if (txt!=null) [
AddTxt='[ ex ]'+txt+'[ / ex ]';
AddText(AddTxt);
]
]
]

So the question is, why is this particular function being invoked simply by entering a forum/discussion link?

Hope this helps....

I remember us having that problem a couple of years ago with some kind of ad, check to make sure you are logged in and you should only have to click it once to make it go away, I can't say that is what the problem is but I remember something like that from about a year or two ago

I can't even use this site anymore from Edge browser on the latest Windows 10 build, scheduled to go public on Aug 2. The problem is definitely related to a function in ats53.js. Specifically the function called "external()".

On current Windows 10 Edge browsers you have the option to click cancel or OK to make the popup go away. BUT, after the new update hits, the OK, cancel often will not work, and the browser automatically returns an error page "This page is having a problem loading..." So, no access to ATS. Sometimes logging out of ATS and logging back in will help, but the issue eventually comes back.

Hopefully someone from ATS will see this and work on a fix.

My EDGE browser (Windows 10 Home Edition / Desktop PC) used to have this pop-up dialogue all the time in the early Spring of 2016. Then, it went away, and stayed gone until the Win-10 Anniversary Update was installed last week.

Yesterday, I toggled the "Smart Screen" filter to "OFF" and that annoying dialogue box has been absent since. We'll see if it stays that way. Fingers crossed!
