Annoying popup social media menu bar


[link to this post]
 
Firefox 45.0.2 on Win 8.1. When I view http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/36073220/boris... and scroll down the page, about a third of the way down a social media menu bar appears. This bar remains as I continue scrolling, into the last third of the page, then disappears.

Anyone else seeing this?

Yes, as soon as you scroll down below the first picture.

I'm on Win 10 and FF 45.0.2 also, also happens on IE11.

So it's a website thing. Another annoyance from the BBC on a par with the auto play videos. mad

Win 8.1, IE11, I don't see it.

Therefore sounds more like Win 10 injecting it?

Further to my earlier post about not seeing it on Win 8.1 IE11, I don't see it on my iPad either.

I don't run an ad-blocker on either.

I don't see it (on Palemoon), but I did block the "breaking news" banner at the bottom of page as that annoyed me.
