When reading through discussion boards in unthreaded mode, I typically press ENTER to advance to the board's next message. Lately that has not been working most of the time and I've had to resort to clicking the Next link.

I finally it out: my ENTER key doesn't work when the new ubiquitous Scottrade SmartText ad appears at the top of the screen. When the ad finally cycles to something else, my ENTER key again works, only to go back to not working as soon as Scottrade's ad takes over again.

This is extremely annoying for me as I try to limit mouse-work to avoid inflaming carpal tunnel symptoms.

Please, don't allow Scottrade or other ads to seize control!
