I’ve looked all over for a solution to this annoying problem, but I just don’t have the skills to look in the right place Igues.

the problem is simply this, when I log out of a browser, I use Google Chrome (up to date) and occaisionally IE 10, and both browsers do this same thing, that is, when I log back in the homepage slides up. I noticed it a few days ago in Chrome and thought it was a Chrome problem. Then I noticed IE 10 did the same thing. I tried a system restore to go back a week or so and can’t do that because (I’m not sure what the reason is) it just won’t do a restore that far back. I was able to do a few days but it didn’t solve the problem and I did an “undo” to that restoration. 

anyone have any ideas on what I can do to stop the homepage from sliding up every time I log in? And it does happen every time.

I’m sorry but I dont understand your problem. What homepage are you talking about? What you mean “slide up”? If you be more specific, I may be able to help.

Sorry, not good at explaining things, thanks for responding so quick. 

Ok, (I’m going to be painfully simplistic) The Desktop……click on your icon for whatever browser you use…..I use Google Chrome and IE 10. 

I go click on Chrome and my homepage opens, I use to use yahoo but switched to netvibes a long time ago. Netvibes being my homepage will open up and all my “stuff” is there. But as a rule when it opens it will open square on, meaning I don’t have to adjust the page to see what’s what. I open it and it is sized to the monitor perfectly. Now, backing up to opening the homepage, it will open up and once it’s loaded instead of opening square on (which it actually does for a split second) it will slide up, being that the bottom of the homepage is now what I’m seeing, and I have to put my mouse pointer on the slider box to bring the page down to view it properly.

So, basically, I open my homepage, and up it goes, EVERY TIME, and I have to bring it back down. IE does the same thing, so I would think it’s some setting in the computer. I came across a forum that I thought would be an answer to someone it seems had the same kind of problem, to uncheck “auto scrolling” and I couldn’t find that setting anywhere. Supposedly it was in internet options under advanced. But would that explain or cure Chromes doing the same thing? I use Windows 7, that  could have been for XP.

This is the best explaination I can give. Hopefully you’ll know what I’m saying. Thanks for your help

I think I understand what you are saying, and I believe the issue is with NetVibes (the website) and not your computer. Have you tried setting a different website as your homepage? If the issue turns out to be with NetVibes, there is nothing you can do until they fix it at their end.

I guess that would explain why it happens to both browsers. I really like Netvibes, so I’ll wait and see if it corrects itself. Thank you for the help.
