    Yeah so the amazon ad at left keeps me from clicking any of the posts horizontally in line with the ad at right.

    Obviously the browser's fault.

    Anyone else see this?

    I wondered if it was just me, I have had to resort to using the d-pad. It turns out the d-pad has a purpose after all.

    I too have this problem, it's EXTREMELY annoying. I stopped visiting this site from my Droid.

    In general, I think the Droid's browser is great for handheld browsing, but it does remind me how spoiled I am by FireFox+AdBlock+NoScript....any chance Mozilla comes out with a mobile browser?

    I couldnt read forums from my phone either.

    everytime i clicked a forum/subforum title to read/enter it, it'd take me to the stupid amazon page.

    I gave up after several times trying.

    hope it gets fixed.

    edit:
    im gonna download miniopera and see if that works. was okay on my bb.

    downloaded opera mini, but it actually kinda sucks on android. seemed better on my bb storm.

    They havent released a opera mini 2 beta for android yet, but should be much better when its released.

    I have not seen the ad you are referring to, but will let the admins know there is an ad causing problems browsing the site.

    To get it working immediately, you can use the mobile skin for this site. It should work fine on the Droid. If it is not coming up by default, you can either scroll down to the bottom of this page and select it, or choose it from your control panel.

    Bottom of page: Scroll down to the very bottom line on the page. You will see a dropdown on the left with -- Phandroid Skin. Change it to -- AF Mobile.

    Control panel:
    User CP (Forum Menu)
    Edit Options (Left menu)
    Forum Skin (Miscellaneous Options - Last item before the Save Changes button)
    Change Use Forum Default to AF Mobile
    Save Changes
