Windows 7: Is it just my monitor?

Is it just my monitor?

Every so often when I log into 7F my screen expands to the width of monitor for a split second then comes back where it should be.
Today, when reviewing a thread and I click on "Quote" in order to input that OP post it expands full width again. It doesn't happen on all threads so I am wondering if something with my system is in an early retirement mode.
I keep my system clean inside and out. Haven't added or downloaded anything for a long time. Just curious if someone else is experiencing same kinds of glitches.

Hi dennis,

This could just be a case of the forum software resizing an image in the thread that is linked to an external source (photobucket Etc.), as the image is fetched on each page load and then resized to fit the forum it can sometimes take a second or so to perform the formatting.

That's what I was thinking but I waited and waited so I tried other threads and most of them worked like they were suppose to. Had me worried that something was going south on my system.
Thanks for getting back.

That is exactly what happens to me too.

No worries.

re: Win7Forums

I had the same thing happen last night, not sure if it was a reply or just viewing a message.
