    Okay, so this has beed happening to me for ages!
    I'll accidently click on a random part of the page and it takes me to a link about something totally unrelative to TFF???
    Like, earlier, I was trying to post, and when I tried to click "post quick reply" It kept forwarding me to this computer site... In the end I had to come off the thread, then when I went back on, it was fine.

    Whats the deal with that???

    Do you see any advertisement on the page? Like randomly flashing below the title? If so then you may accidently be clicking on that.

    Are you accidentally clicking near one of the banner ads? Sometimes if you click too near them, it can take you to the site.

    It might be that. But that doesn't answer why it did it whan I pressed the "post quick reply" Button to post a message...?

    If you had Firefox, I would be more likely to understand your problem..

    But I'm honestly not good with computers.. Overread might be able to help.

    Sounds like a computer virus to me. I've had a couple that randomly redirected me to other sites when I pressed links and such. But that was on Internet Explorer, I dunno if those could affect Opera. I'd suggest running whatever antivirus software you have just in case.
