Firearm photos

One more thing, when I click on the Firearm Photos tab at the top of the screen it takes me to a website called Securityarms.com. It also opens a second wind which appears to trying to download something; fortunately my security stops it. Just a heads up.

Unless you're getting a different popup than I am, that's a youtube video (DD AR-15 ad). If embedded youtube videos freak you out, you must not surf the web much... they're everywhere.

If you have popup blocking enabled, you shouldn't even see that pop-up window. Doesn't IE8 come with popup blocking enabled by default? Tools -> Popup Blocker -> Turn on...

The popup is loading correctly today. Yesterday it was very slow to load and there was no way to identify it as a youtube video, which yes I do recognize . So I guess a tab label Firearms Photos going to a webpage titled Securityarms.com is normal SOP.

Yep, it's normal. That link was placed there a long time ago when securityarms was much less advertising-centric.

Since google images will find virtually anything, that link isn't so useful anymore. Maybe it should be removed.
