    pan15, without any additional info: OS, Browser, Mouse Make & Model, etc., your issue is difficult to diagnose, yet in this Post, you mentioned using Caffeine. I would start there.

    ESPN.com uses lots of Flash. Check that your Flash Player is up to date as well.

    Again, without further info, all anyone can do is guess and Caffeine was my shot in the dark.

    I had this problem before, it was related to adobe flash, the problem disappeared after I deleted all flash cookies in my PC with the firefox addon "betterprivacy" but you can try using bleachbit.

    i thought it was a cookie problem because whenever i clear my cookies the problem goes away but then eventually it comes back. I was hoping for a permanent solution to this problem so i dont always have to clear my cookies but i don't know if theres one out there

    not your *common* cookie, I'm talking about flash cookies, you can't remove them with your browser.
