    I’m not sure if this is just me but every time I go to the CSS Tricks homepage I get a black screen, all the links and content are still there, just masked by this big black box, if I scroll down to the bottom of the page and back up slowly the black box turns into black bars that seem to cover the entire width of the page but only take up about 50px of height. They seem to show up just underneath the date for each article on the homepage (See image).

    I’ve tried in other browsers and it works fine and I’ve also tried disabling all my firefox plugins so its not that either.

    Other things to note:

    Only started with the new theme for CSS Tricks.
    It worked fine for a few days of the new style before it started happening.
    Switching tabs makes the bars cover the entire screen again.
    Content on the page is unselectable without using CTRL + A
    All other pages on the site work fine

    Not just you. Very strange.


    This has been reported by a few FireFox users. Cause is currently unknown.


    I’m pretty sure that has to do with the small circle below his date that has the amount of comments on that post. I don’t see why it would do that though. I’m using Firefox 7 beta and it works fine for me.


    Just updated to 7 beta and it’s still the same.

    So if it’s related to the comment circle, that means it doesn’t happen on a page like this one?


    I’m using Firefox 6.0.2 and have not experienced anything like this.


    Only seems to effect the homepage, this page and any others with posts on it are unaffected.
